1. Kerr, 67, a forestry executive, played hardball as a boy before attending UBC and then Berkeley (where he got his MBA). He took up the game again in his twenties and played each winter in Phoenix until he was 45.
2. With updated facilities and strong ticket sales, the Canadians have begun turning a profit. They’re now a farm team of the Toronto Blue Jays, for whom the bobbleheaded all-star Dave Stieb used to pitch.

4. The collection includes pennants and pins, magazines and tobacco tins, and baseballs signed by former major-leaguers like Duke Snider and Brooks Robinson, both of whom once played at Kerr’s Nat Bailey Stadium.
