The Vancouver Veterans was Vancouver’s first semi-professional baseball team. The team started by playing a host of California ballclubs at Powell Street Grounds in Downtown Vancouver. The team managers convinced local backers to believe the city could support a team, then the y convinced the Northwest League to grant them a franchise. They hired John McCloskey to run the team, he was a Veteran, so he called the team The Veterans.

The Veterans played out of Recreation Park at Homer and Smithe, but folded after one season.

*Although we can pretend they wore royal blue with orange uniforms, we cannot prove it because no photos of the team exist, as far as we know.*
