As of 2010, 25 baseball teams have called beautiful Victoria home since 1896. Recreation Park was home to the Bees and Islanders until 1921. After that, Royal Athletic Park was where the Western International League (now known as the Northwest League) played all of their games. The Victoria Athletics (a New York Yankees franchise) and the Tyrees called this ballfield home, and it made a very good home for baseball until 1964.
