The annual tournament declares the best men’s amateur team in Canada, with 10 teams involved from across the country, including a host team entry. The event is expected to bring more than $1 million in economic benefits to the city.

“This is a tournament and a format we know well and we are excited we’re bringing it to Victoria,” said  HarbourCats vice president and general manager Jim Swanson.

“This is another great event for Victoria, which is known for welcoming major national and international tournaments. We appreciate the confidence shown that our staff is fully able to handle all that’s needed to make this a success, on and off the field, and make this a memorable event for Baseball Canada.”

The nationals take place the third week of August and will primarily be played at Royal Athletic Park, with a secondary field used for a few games.
