The Vancouver Canadians Baseball Team play at Nat Bailey Stadium.  Nat Bailey Stadium has often been referred to as the "prettiest little ballpark in North America" - one trip to the 57-year-old stadium and fans start to see why..Spectators are right on top of the action die to the narrow foul territory in the park. They are also treated to one of the few manual scoreboards still in operation as well as the picturesque backdrop of Queen Elizabeth Park..Built in 1951, it was originally named Capilano Stadium after a local brewery. Triple-A class baseball laws not played there until the Vancouver Mounties entered the Pacific Coast League in 1956. After Vancouver's first foray in Class AAA ball ended in 1969, the stadium was used for local soccer and other events.
