Congratulations Claire Eccles - Member of Baseball BC Female Program

May 16, 2017


Claire, Team BC player, was just announced to suit up for the Victoria HarbourCats this summer. When talking to Claire this morning solely to tell her how proud we all are for her historic signing with the Victoria HarbourCats Collegiate Baseball Club and that there’s no better candidate to do the job in leading the way for Canadian females in baseball, the question came up about what this means to girls coming up through the Baseball BC Female Program, just as she did. Claire confidently stated “if they work hard just know there are opportunities arising and there are possibilities now to continue living the dream of playing baseball”.  Yes there is, now in Canada more than ever, thanks to you Claire.  We thank you for all your hard work on & off the field, whether in a Baseball BC, Team Canada or UBC (softball) jersey, you are giving others the inspiration & hope showing that women can play baseball too…!!!
