Behind the scenes with the Vancouver Canadians: Dusting off Nat Bailey Stadium for the new season (PHOTOS)

After a three-year absence, the Vancouver Canadians are freshening up the home field for the new baseball season

The Vancouver Canadians have started getting ready for this upcoming season.

Players warmed up on April 5 in the beautiful sunshine and warm weather while others had interviews and took official headshots. That means that Nat Bailey stadium must be in tip-top shape to host its guests.

This will be the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic that the Canadians will be back playing at home.

The last games to be played at Nat Bailey Stadium were in 2019, and Vancouver baseball fans have had no events or opportunities to share the communal love for baseball until the Canadians come back.

Crews cleaned the stands and bleachers to prepare for attendees while the field was prepared for the player's practice.

Nat Bailey Stadium is coming back to life again and will soon be bustling with excitement, cheers, and shouts from fans.

The High-A Minor League baseball team sports a fresh new roster of 29, only six have only appeared in Nat Bailey Stadium before.

New head coach Brent Lavallee and his staff look forward to the start of the season on April 8 in Spokane, Washington and then they make their way back to Vancouver for the Canadians' home opener against the Eugene Emeralds on Tuesday, April 19.
