Bob Brown would take over the team as its majority shareholder in 1910 as he bought 60% of the Vancouver Beavers for $500 as well as taking over the helm of manager. Brown brought in future Pittsburgh Pirates' Harry Gardner who posted a 22-13 record while Charles Swain's 14 2B, 8 3B and his 11 HR (.250) was good enough to lead to league in home runs. Vancouver shot up to 2nd place and looked to be on the rise again. Brown continued to own the team but stepped down from the field in 1911 to allow Kitty Brashier to take over as Manager. Now that Bob Brown was no longer in control on the field, he could concentrate on doing everything he would need to do to keep Vancouver's great baseball franchise stable and successful.
