The Victoria HarbourCats announced today that Bhootan LLC / Matthew Stoudt has agreed to sell the club to a group of four local investors. The transfer is still subject to approval by the West Coast League, however.

The four members of the new ownership group are:
  • GM Jim Swanson.
  • John Wilson, C.E.O and owner of Wilson's Transportation.
  • Ken Swanson (Burnaby, BC), brother of Jim Swanson.
  • Rich Harder (New Westminster, BC), friend of the Swanson brothers.

All of us at the Victoria HarbourCats Baseball Blog would like to congratulate all of the parties involved in getting this ownership issue resolved prior to the start of the 2015 season. The deal goes a long way towards ensuring that the HarbourCats will remain in Victoria for many years to come.

  • The HarbourCats also announced that four more players will not be suiting up for the team this summer (for a variety of reasons): LHP Henry Baker (University of Washington), IF Cam Santos (Chico State), RHP Seve Romo (University of San Diego) and OF Kacy Smith (University of San Diego). The current roster now contains 33 players, but don't be surprised to see more players added before Opening Day.
