Brad Norris-Jones (R) make the announcement
This free event will be held at the Fairmont Empress Hotel (most likely in the Ivy Room) from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the 21st, and fans will have an opportunity to get autographs from the Mariners players, meet Dave Sims and check out the mascot antics of Mariner Moose and Harvey the HarbourCat. The HarbourCats are teaming with the Greater Victoria Baseball Association to present this portion of the Mariners Caravan and local baseball organizations will have information tables at the event.
Be sure to reserve the 21st of January on your calendar, because you won’t want to miss this event. Otherwise, you’ll regret it come next October when you’re watching Paxton and Furbush on TV pitching in the MLB playoffs. It should be a fun evening for local baseball fans of all ages.
- The HarbourCats also announced today that Brad Norris-Jones has been promoted to Assistant GM. Norris-Jones has been the team’s key marketing executive since its inception.
- The Winter Caravan will make stops in four other West Coast League cities: Wenatchee, Walla Walla, Yakima and Longview (Cowlitz Black Bears).
- The 2015 West Coast League schedule is expected to be announced in the near future.
