Housing Families Needed for C's Players

Canadians players brighten up a summer for local families willing to open home to future star

(Scotiabank Field at Nat Bailey Stadium - Vancouver, B.C.) - The Vancouver Canadians Baseball Club has a long and extremely successful Housing Program that brings players and local fans together. This season we are in search of a few new homes where a player can use a room within your home and rest in between home games played out at historic Nat Bailey Stadium. It's an unforgettable chance to see right into the live of an aspiring Toronto Blue Jays prospect and share in his Minor League journey.

The Canadians provide compensation for your generosity including Season Tickets to watch our 'Boys of Summer' and enjoy the journey toward what we all hope is another trip to the Northwest League Championship!  

"We went and offered to host a player and they were happy to place a player with us and so we've been doing it ever since and everyone seems to really enjoy it," says Steve Gustafson who started back in 2009.  

"When I was young, one of the coolest things was to see these guys playing baseball for a living and it was something that I ended up looking up to," added Eric Gustafson - Steve's son.

This is a fantastic opportunity to families who live in relatively close proximity to historic Nat Bailey Stadium to come together and support one of our respectable and talented players starting in Mid-June through September. Players have 38 regular season home games this season and are on the road for an additional 38. To see the Vancouver Canadians 2019 Schedule, click HERE.
