The May 27, 1909 edition of the Enderby Press carried a report on a game between Revelstoke and Enderby played on May 24th, 1909. No league is mentioned in the column so it is likely an exhibition encounter. Enderby won the game but no final score was provided. A statement regarding Enderby pitcher McDonald: “McDonald cut out the whirlwind delivery that distinguished him last year.....” is a strong indication that an Enderby team was in existence in 1908.
A second Revelstoke vs Enderby game report was printed in the July 8, 1909 edition of the same newspaper. A Dominion Day (July 1) matchup played at Armstrong which Enderby won 10 to 0. The article mentions that Enderby chucker, Ray Hancock, had pitched 12 scoreless innings that day (nine for his home team and also three for Summerland in another game vs Kelowna).
