Bob Brown had previously handed over the reins of on-field manager to Kitty Brashear who did a fine job, so that Brown could concentrate on taking his Vancouver Beavers to their "promised land" aka Athletic Park. Now that the stadium was in place, Brown once again took over as manager of the franchise. The Beavers were also at this time, temporarily known as the Vancouver Bees… a strange name considering the fact that Victoria's competing baseball franchise was also known as the Bees. That first season here at Athletic Park was a storybook one. Vancouver was led on the mound Bert Hall who posted a 22-10 record. Matt Clark posted a 17-9 and Bob Engersoll was 19-15. At the plate Anthony Walsh was the player with the power hitting 30 2B, 11 3B, 14 HR and batting .261 at a time when the HR ball was not at all a common commodity in baseball. Ed Kippert meanwhile led the league in hits batting .325 with 41 2B, 10 3B and 5 HR. Together this franchise posted a terrific 99-66 (.600) season to win the NWL Championship in their very first season here at Athletic Park.
