When the Okotoks Dawgs decided to find a new jersey for their “5 o’clock Somewhere Saturdays” the big Dawg, John Ircandia went to Pablo Forno seeking help.

Forno runs Grand Slam Sports and is one of the best merchandiser’s in the country. Ircandia challenged him to come up with a suitable jersey, considering the “Jimmy Buffett styled Margaritaville” imagery.

Angelina Cox, the renowned Kentucky decorator, was also involved. Forno, Ircandia and Cox settled on the tie dye style.  

The unique uniforms were on display as the Dawgs blanked the Brooks Bombers 12-0.

CJ Lewington (UAPB - Calgary, Alta.) made sure Okotoks won the President’s Trophy, tied a season-high in strikeouts, fanning seven over six innings of shutout baseball.

Born in Ottawa, ON and growing up with military parents, my childhood was filled with new cities all of the time, stretching from one side of Canada to the other. 

I took to sports at a young age, primarily Tae Kwon Do. I loved the competitiveness of it and by age 13 won my first North American and Canadian Championship title.

I moved out West after I was done my schooling, where I obtained a Diploma as an Automotive Technician.  I loved the amazing landscapes Alberta offered me, where I could pursue my passion of photography.  It wasn't until 2013, when I realized what I really wanted to be taking pictures of, after I travelled to Phoenix to watch Team Canada in the WBC. I was hooked on sports photography, and baseball, right then and there.  I currently live in Calgary, AB and spend my summers shooting the WMBL Okotoks Dawgs.
