VICA helps fans salute ‘Mr. HarbourCat’ with bobblehead day on June 9, 2019

Alex DeGoti BobbleheadVICTORIA, B.C., March 28, 2019 - Alex DeGoti is one step away from the Major Leagues, having reached the AAA level in a very strong Houston Astros organization, but he can cross off one major career goal already.

Really, who doesn’t yearn to someday have their own bobblehead?

DeGoti, an infielder who starred for the HarbourCats during the team’s first three years of existence (2013-14-15), is the player of focus for this year’s bobblehead giveaway on Sunday, June 9th, 1:00 PM at Wilson’s Group Stadium in Victoria.

The bobblehead, and that game day, are sponsored by the Vancouver Island Construction Association (VICA). This is their second-annual HARDHATS IN THE BALLPARK event — punctuated last year by lineups at the gate to get their hands on the special edition Claire Eccles bobblehead.

“Bobbleheads are still the top promotion in baseball, and VICA has been an amazing partner for us,” said John Pollard, Marketing Director for the HarbourCats. “The Claire bobblehead last year was a smash hit. Alex is an amazing player and an even better person, who connected with our fans — people will want to get tickets now and line up early that day, no question.”

VICA, which does a tremendous job of advocating for the construction industry the entire length of the island, has been able to design a great family day for their members, with everyone enjoying a sunny day at the ballpark.

“The thing that stood out to us last year was how happy and relaxed people were, watching the ballgame with their family and friends and really relishing that sense of community,” said Rory Kulmala, CEO of VICA. “Our members loved the gameday experience and we’re glad to be back with the Alex DeGoti bobblehead event this summer — June 9th is going to be a fun day!”

The Vancouver Island Construction Association is a member-based, industry led association that serves the institutional, commercial, industrial, civil, and multi-family residential construction sectors on Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands, and other coastal areas of British Columbia. For media inquiries, please contact Kelly Marion, Manager, Marketing & Communications, Phone: 250.800.0918 or e-mail at
