Told by: Richard Michaels: Victoria HarbourCats Baseball Club; Celeste Macevicius: UVic.

The Victoria HarbourCats are a local semi-professional baseball team that the whole community can enjoy watching on any warm summer evening at Wilson’s Group Stadium at Royal Athletic Park. The HarbourCats are a recent member of the Community Partnership Network (CPN) and believe that sport can bring diverse communities together. The HarbourCats joined the CPN in 2018 as part of the team’s commitment to promote diversity and inclusion both inside and outside the ballpark. When spring arrives each May, the stadium comes to life as kids, adults and seniors from different cultures, faiths, gender, sexual orientation, etc. - gather to share in the excitement of HarbourCats baseball.
