Victoria is getting a new collegiate baseball team.

 

The new Victoria Golden Tide will play in the now eight-team Canadian College Baseball Conference (CCBC), which takes on university teams from Nanaimo, Kelowna, Kamloops, the Okanagan, Chilliwack and Abbotsford, as well as Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge.

The announcement of the Golden Tide comes on the same day as the opening of a new training centre, transforming the former Cook Street Squash Club into an all-year training space. The HarbourCats Players Club Training Centre, located at 1821 Cook St., now houses three batting cages, four pitching tunnels and a small fitness and workout area.

is squash not a big thing anymore?

 

remember in the 80's the squash vs. racquetball rivalry?

 

the lounge at the hotel grand pacific used to have windows where you could watch over the courts.

 

 

 

 

  • The squash court is open for exercising but squash is not allowed at this time.

It was a “perfect day to open this facility” said Victoria HarbourCats assistant coach Curtis Pelletier, referring to the rainy weather Wednesday outside the team’s new indoor baseball training facility.

 

It was part of the HarbourCats’ double play on the day with the added announcement the West Coast League franchise will also sponsor a new team, Victoria Golden Tide, in the Canadian College Baseball Conference. The Golden Tide, under head coach Pelletier, will begin play in 2021 at Royal Athletic Park in the September to May league. The now eight-team CCBC also features Vancouver Island University, University of the Fraser Valley, UBC-Okanagan, Thompson Rivers University, University of Calgary, Edmonton Collegiate Baseball Club and Prairie Baseball Academy of Lethbridge.
