C’s Recap – 2018 Vancouver Canadians Media Day At The Nat

The Vancouver Canadians held its Media Day at Nat Bailey Stadium this week. It involved manager Dallas McPherson holding a press conference with the local media and the players getting their photos taken for used for the video scoreboard, game program and team website. Here’s a glimpse of what took place behind the scenes inside the stadium. Take a click around to enlarge any of the captioned photos.


The players then went outside to take in the views of Nat Bailey Stadium.

The players then returned inside for more video work.

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.
