The Braves brought some new talent back into the lineup. The team featured a few of the Western International League's biggest stars including Ray Orteig (23 2B, 25 HR, .344) and 21 year old Reg Clarkson (30 2B, 16 3B, 14 HR, .333). The pitching however, just wasn't there as the Vancouver Capilanos finished the 1946 season, 6 games under .500. The Braves had taken over the Capilanos for the season based on the fact that a quality ballpark would be re-created and Athletic Park would continue on as it had been since 1913. There was some grumbling however by many players that the ballpark was hardly of the same quality as it had been before the fire. The Clubhouses and many of the amenities had burned down and either not been replaced, or been recreated in such a makeshift way, that morale seemed to suffer from it. With that, the Braves left town in 1947 leaving the team without an affiliate for the rest of their time here at Capilano Stadium I.
