Hi all,

Sorry I haven't been on here as much as I would have liked. Things have been busy at the ballpark.

I'm getting to do a lot of things for the team. Today we received in some of the special jerseys the players will be wearing--the Canada Day ones which are really cool as well as the Vancouver Mounties jerseys the team will be wearing on select days. The Mounties were the AAA team from back in the 60s--back in the days of Jim Bouton (Ball Four) and Brooks Robinson. Tonight we had a networking event in North Vancouver to prepare for North Vancouver Night happening at the ballpark in June 23rd which was great--meeting local businesses is great and really the kind of people we enjoy having at the ballpark.

As well, I have some pretty big news: In addition to my regular everyday everything duties, I will be the official in-game statistician for the Vancouver Canadians. My duties will be recording pitch by pitch data via our stat compiling program for stats that will be used by MiLB and Vancouver Canadians purposes as well as updating MLB Advanced Media on what's happening in the game. Which means at the end of every half inning, I'm going to be calling MLB headquarters in New York to update them on what has happened. This is going to be a huge responsibility but incredible experience to have and I'll be up at the pressbox for all 38 home dates this summer.

Outside the ballpark, the place is great and the last couple days have really brought the rain, which comes with the territory.

Anyways, thanks for reading and best wishes!



  1. Hello Jeff,

    Wow, sounds like you are having a great time and glad to hear about your new responsibilities! Keep us up-to-date.
    BTW Scottie has been pitching 2 innings every game, he loves it and he is doing very well! They(the Cubs)have won all of their games so far. Take Care.

    Love Aunt Arls

  2. Thats great news!

    He has very good mechanics, me and Jake gave him a thumbnail tutorial on pitching at Easter but he picked it up very quickly. If he can pitch and throw strikes, he'll do very well. Good stuff!
