The Indians and Vancouver Minor Expos are heading to the provincials in Nanaimo.  Although the forecast was rainy all games got played at Bird Field and some exciting baseball was watched. This wraps up the Indians home stand at Bird Field for the season and for some the last time they will play on this field. Wonderful memories made. Stayed tuned as the TriCity Indians are playing in the Baseball BC Qualifier starting Thursday in Burnaby, top three teams from this tournament have a chance to go to PEI for Nationals.
