C’s broadcaster Rob Fai also sent along his best wishes to those trying to cope with this tragedy.

Canadians stadium clubhouse attendant Johnny Stewart had this to say.

2014-2015 C’s teammates Gunnar Heidt and Andrew Case also tweeted their support.

Having been a play-by-play broadcaster in hockey and riding the buses in Northern Ontario over 20 years ago, I have a lot of fond memories from those trips in the iron lung. It was a chance to bond with players, coaches, trainers and parents through sharing stories and life experiences, telling jokes and watching movies.

What really shook me to the core was hearing the Broncos radio play-by-play announcer Tyler Bieber was among those killed in the crash. He was only 29 years old. I was in my 20’s when I began my play-by-play career.

My deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers to those affected by this tragedy.


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 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.
