Having been an avid baseball fan my entire life, I began attending Cactus League Spring Training games in AZ about 42 years ago.
In 2012, after paying an $1,800 bill for a one week stay in a very basic hotel room, I had finally had enough of spending countless $$$’s on accommodation each year. So before leaving for home, I set out to buy a small condo. Problem was, EVERYTHING seemed like such a bargain compared to Vancouver, so we ended up putting deposits on 6 of them!!.... (I thought “What the heck, surely my FRIENDS IN BASEBALL would want a few of them between everyone I know that loves baseball back home"??…. Fully refundable deposits and all…Why not??).
“Why not?”, is because we ended up buying all of them except one that was purchased by a VERY smart accountant and "baseball guy" as it turned out.
Looking on the bright side though, is over the years we’ve been able to use them as “fundraisers” for different charities that have asked for help, reward those that help with various projects we look to support as sponsors or volunteers, charitable events we get involved with, etc, etc.While we're now down to 3 of the 5 units, we'll continue to use those as needed to help out as many baseball participants as we can be it for storing equipment for those taking down "TRAVEL TEAMS" in March to those just needing a place to crash with us if need be while we're down there for a few days.
While I never did create my own website for our own condos, if you’d like to know more about the property overall, check out www.toscanacondorentals.com which will put you in touch with those that we consider "family" to us now in the way of Karen Creel and her team at Creel Management.
While we can't rent out the units on our own, IF you're interested in helping out our programs "In Trade" - or perhaps even making a small donation towards our CHARITABLE FOUNDATION who's mission is to help out those offering programs in baseball - just let me know directly and I'll check it out.
NOTE: While the funds are donated directly through the Vancouver Foundation and nothing to do with us as far as administration goes, in order for programs to receive funding, they would need to go through a charitable organization such as BC Sports, Baseball Canada or Little League.
