We left Lynnwood about 8:30am to drive up to Vancouver, BC to see the Vancouver Canadians, a Single A affiliate of Oakland, play the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes with a 12:05 start time. We read the Vancouver map wrong and ended up in the wrong area for the stadium. We asked for help and found that we were about 30 minutes away. We arrived at Nat Bailey Stadium about 30 minutes before the game, so it all was ok. The stadium was built in 1952, seating 6,500 and is quite satisfactory, almost all bleacher seating except for the first few rows. It was a bright sunny day and we had to move back one row into the shade as it was very warm sitting in the sun. Another great pitchers duel. A Salem-Keizer player hit a solo home run early in the game and that is how the score stayed 1-0 through the bottom of the 9th. In true storybook fashion in the bottom of the ninth with 2 out and a runner on 1st a Canadians' player hit a home run to win the game. The players and fans were jubilant. The box score was Salem R-1, H-4, E-3 and the Canadians R-2, H-4, E-0. You can see the foul ball flying past the batter's helmet in the one picture. The car has turned on headlights in the Clarkdale Motors advertisement. They do not have a mascot. The field lines are RF - 335', CF - 395', and LF - 330'. We started our drive back to Lynnwood and spent an hour crossing the US border. The back-up was to the Canadian crossing area. It only took us a few minutes going into Canada in the morning. The last two pictures show the Peace Arch and American flag in flowers at the border crossing at Blaine WA. New Logo.
