The Vancouver Canadians play baseball at Nat Bailey Stadium, in Vancouver. It’s late March—off-season at the Nat, and its silent corridors, lined with beer and sushi counters, are frigid and dank.

The home team’s locker room has a heavy blue door, and behind it an antique ceiling-mounted gas furnace blows heat. Inside, the Canadians’ new general manager is milling about, waiting to have his photograph taken.

Andrew Seymour is slightly built, with red hair and a warm smile. Behind him is a fussed-over tableaux of baseball paraphernalia, which will serve as the shot’s background. Before him is a photographer crouched over her Macbook Pro. Peter Severinson talked to Andrew Seymour for the May 2008 issue of BCBusiness.
