Victoria baseball history

The history of baseball in Victoria, British Columbia has many interesting stories (as well as a statistical legacy). As Tom Hawthorn notes in this great overview of professional baseball in Victoria, on the surface the city seems much more like a cricket and rugby town.  But baseball goes back a long way, with a lot of colourful characters.

Hawthorn penned a similar piece for the Globe & Mail ten years ago, which contains more details about the single appearance of the subject of "the greatest baseball card ever made".
