On their fourth attempt, the Cannons finally played the first ever professional home game of baseball in Calgary on April 22nd, against the Tucson Toros.

Lets..... go Toros!
We are the Toros!!
The mighty mighty Toros!!
We're so terrific, we must be Toros!!
Yeah, go Toros!! WOOO!!
- Bring It On

Parker threw the ceremonial first pitch out to Calgary’s mayor Ralph Klein.  Led by Mickey Brantley’s  four-hit game, the Cannons won 7–6 to send the crowd of 4,313 who braved the near-freezing temperatures home happy.
