As the war came to an end and the era of the newest version of Athletic Park (now Capilano Stadium I) rose from the ashes, the Western International League announced its reformation (still being called the WIL. It wouldn't be re-branded as today's Northwest League until 1955). The Chicago Cubs franchise affiliation which helped make Vancouver the incumbent Champions (even though it was 4 years earlier), was now long gone. That didn't mean however that the Vancouver was going back to co-op status. In fact, the franchise would immediately find a new franchise to call this home as the Vancouver Capilanos became the Class B (Short Season Single-A today) home of the Boston Braves.
