“We wanted to do something in advance of the season, for everyone who is excited for the HarbourCats to be back — and for people to meet our players and coaches,” said Jim Swanson, managing partner and general manager of the HarbourCats. “We’re proud to team with Tally-Ho, and have Titan and Major there at our field. The carriages are a big part of the atmosphere of our vibrant downtown and our thriving tourism sector, which we’re pleased to play a role in.”
Fans will see HarbourCats practising for part of the event before being allowed on the field themselves. Kids should bring their gloves, as you never know which HarbourCats player you might get to play catch with.
