VANCOUVER (NEWS1130) – The Vancouver Canadians continued their upgrades today by renaming their ballpark to Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium.
It is the third time that the park has had its name changed. When it was built in 1951, it was known as Capilano Stadium. Then in 1978, Nat Bailey Stadium became the new title in recognition of one time concession vendor and White Spot founder Nat Bailey.
Among other pros to the rights holding, stability of the franchise is something that Vancouver Canadians President Andy Dunn is very excited about. “To have a partner like Scotiabank work together with us to ensure we have a home for professional baseball for years to come is something we are very proud of.”
Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium will open the schedule on its 59th season on Monday June 21st, against the Spokane Indians.
