The Champions played great ball all season long going 94-73 (.563) and while that kept Vancouver competitive… it didn't get them 1st place. Matt Clark (23-9) and Bobby James (29-7) did their best however to lead them with some of the best pitching performances Vancouver had yet seen. By 1913 the "Vancouver Champions" realized they couldn't live up to that name so they changed again to the "Vancouver Bees". That was a rather odd choice as the Victoria franchise was also known as the Bees. This gave a Canada quite the "buzz". The new Vancouver Bees would quickly find out however that they had played their last game at Recreation Park. Vancouver Professional Baseball was on the move.
