Yakima To Open Baseball Season Here
[Vancouver News-Herald, March 15, 1946]
Vancouver baseball fans will get their first look at this year’s edition of the Western International League, Capilanos, on April 30, when Sylvester Johnson’s boys open a seven-game series against Yakima. The Pippins open on a Tuesday, then play Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and two games Saturday. The clubs move to Seattle to wind up their series Sunday.
The Caps, who start their season at Spokane April 26, play at Spokane again and Tacoma before entertaining Wenatchee here starting May 13.
All told, the locals have 75 home games scheduled, but 10 of them are Sunday dates which will be played at Seattle.
The Victoria club opens at home, too, with Tacoma Tigers providing the opposition. Laurel Harney’s hirelings get their W.I.L. baptism at Wenatchee April 26.
