C’s Recap – A Special Night At The Nat

ccap_recapThe Vancouver Canadians wore special jerseys to promote pediatric cancer awareness to open up their three-game series against the Spokane Indians at Nat Bailey Stadium. The black jerseys had a blue Canadians script with orange trim to represent the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

On the back of the collar of each jersey was the phrase “I’m Playing For” in type with a person’s name written in. A logo of the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation was placed on the left sleeve.

A silent auction was held on the special jerseys with all proceeds going to the BC Children’s Hospital Foundation.

The game was stopped momentarily at the end of the fourth inning for a special pinch-hit appearance by this courageous youngster.

With both clubs lining up along the first and third base lines, they witnessed Connor Morcom step up to the plate, take a swing of the bat and round the bases for a home run in front of a sell-out crowd of 6,413. The Vancouver Province has video and photos of the special occasion.

It was a very touching moment and it was great to see both teams and the sell-out crowd rise to the occasion and celebrate this youngster’s courage in battling this horrible disease that has touched far too many lives. Let’s pray that a cure will be found as soon as possible.

About Niall O'Donohoe

My name is Niall O’Donohoe and I am an avid follower of baseball, specifically Canada’s Teams – the Toronto Blue Jays and their affiliate, the Vancouver Canadians. My blog beginnings began in 2007 with Batter’s Box, where I’m still allowed to write stories, summaries and photos about the Blue Jays minor league system under the alias #2JBrumfield. The blog formerly known as Niall On Baseball, C’s Plus Baseball follows the C’s from behind the lens at Nat Bailey Stadium. The reason for the name change was to reflect the main purpose of this blog, which is to deliver plus coverage of the C’s through photos and observations of the players striving to make it to the major leagues, be it with Toronto or one of the other 29 MLB teams. From time to time, I do make it to other baseball games outside of The Nat and will post about them here as well. If you like what you see here, please spread the word about CsPlusBaseball.com by tweeting about this website or using your favourite social media platform about this website that pledges to deliver awesome content about Canada’s only affiliated professional minor league baseball club. Spread the word by legal means only. Don’t write it on any bathroom walls or spray paint any buildings because I have no bail money for you. Still, anything you can do would be very much appreciated!
