Kelowna Elks

* Believed to be Rocky Mountain Rangers, Vernon

(August 1)   After five innings of a pitchers' duel Tuesday, Kelowna Elks erupted for ten runs in the bottom of the sixth inning to dump Winfield 11-1 to win the Kelowna & District championship and the Morrison Cup. Elks took the lead in the third with Reid's drive to left bringing in winning pitcher Norm DeHart. Winfield tied it in the fourth as G. Simpson hit to right to score Sadler. Dr. MacEwen's three-run homer was a highlight of the Elks' ten-run bonanza. The Elks were awarded the Morrison Cup, presented some years ago by Mr. T.N. Morrison and received watch fobs presented by Reach & Co. the famous baseball supplies house.

The senior-level West Kootenay Baseball League, operational in 1921, ceased to exist entering the 1922 season. The rationale for the break-up of the circuit was never made known.

Trail and Nelson did form senior teams for exhibition play, however, with the players for their squads being selected from their respective four-team City Leagues. Kaslo’s involvement was primarily in matches with Nelson and a few East Kootenay opponents.

Rossland had only one known house-league calibre squad sponsored by the Knights of Pythias which played a few exhibition contests with their fraternal lodge counterpart from the Trail City League, the Trail K of P nine. 


Knights of Pythias

(June 11)  The hosting Knights of Pythias locked horns with their brethren from Rossland in an exhibition tilt which saw the K of P squad from the Golden City post a 14 to 6 triumph over their fraternal brothers from the Smelter City.

(June 14)  The Vics plated a singleton in the eighth stanza to edge past the the Knights of Pythias 9 to 8.

Vics              2     1     .667
K of P            2     4     .333
Kenos             1     2     .333

(July 23)  The Knights of Pythias aggregations from Rossland and Trail duked it out in an exhibition encounter in the Silver City which saw the Trailites prevail 14 to 4.


Originally assigned to specific teams, a number of players within the circuit tended to suit up for, not only their original club, but also with whichever team needed them.


(June 30)  The Cubs and Pirates battled to a seven-inning 13 – 13 draw.

Moddrell and Bruce
W. Bradshaw and R. Bradshaw

(July 7)  The Pirates cleaned up on the Tigers 13 to 5 at the Recreation grounds.

Pitts (L) and Brennan
Gibbs (W) and Buchanan

(July 11)  The Giants prevailed over the Cubs 14 to 2 in a rather listless game.

Langill (W) and Horswill
C. Bradshaw (L) and R. Bradshaw

(July 12)  The Tigers edged past the Giants 6 to 5. Pitts belted a three-run homer for the Giants.

(July 14)  With catcher Roy Bradshaw and outfielder Pasacreta connecting for home runs, the Cubs doubled the Tigers 8 to 4.

Bruce (W) and R. Bradshaw


(May 24)  The Kaslo team of baseballers walloped the visiting Nelson aggregation 15 to 6 before a mammoth Victoria Day crowd in Kaslo. For five innings the game produced little in the way of offense, the only scoring coming in the fourth when each team plated a counter. The bats came to life thereafter with Kaslo sending six runners home in the sixth and Nelson counting five in the seventh. Kaslo then put the game out of reach when they added three more in their half of the seventh and rubbed it in by sending five more across the plate in the eighth. The hosts held a 14 to 7 edge in base hits with first baseman C. White leading the way with a triple, double and single. Winning pitcher Len Cockle and outfielder G. Murchison followed with a pair of doubles each. Losing tosser Ed Langill belted a two-run homer for Nelson.  Cockle fanned 14 while Langill whiffed 13.

Cockle (W) and Garland

(June 3)  Kaslo’s high-class diamondeers were dumped 12 to 9 by the hosting Creston aggregation. Flychaser Abey of the Kaslo nine topped all sluggers in this match by belting a brace of home runs. 

Cockle (W) and Garland
Bleumenauer, Kimberley (L) and Telford

(June 18)  Creston’s snappy ball nine took the invading Nelson diamond troopers in tow, handing them an 8 to 4 pasting. The Lakesiders’ defeat was, in large part, due to their ineptness afield, as losing chucker Ed Langill allowed but four base hits. Keystone combo partners on the Creston squad, shortstop Bleumenauer and second sacker Joe Atkinson, banged out a triple and double respectively while shortpatcher R. Whitehead of the Nelsonites clipped the orb for a two-bagger.

Langill (L) and Desireau
Maxwell (W), Kimberley (5) and Telford  

(July 1)  Kaslo’s speedy diamond aggregation doubled the Nelson balltossers 6 to 3 in a fast and snappy game on Dominion Day. Kaslo pitcher Len Cockle sparkled on the hillock, fanning no less than 19 Nelson batters. Defensive support by his teammates was excellent while that received by losing chucker McDaniels of the Lakesiders, who was on the slab for the first six innings, was sub-par. 

Cockle (W) and Garland
McDaniels (L), Langill (7) and Bruce

(July 4)  Nelson seniors won their first game of the season when they walloped visiting Trail 14 to 6. The Lakesiders lit into two Trail moundsmen for 16 base knocks with first baseman D. Moddrell and catcher Bruce leading the way with four safeties apiece including two doubles each. Not far behind was outfielder O’Neill who stung the sphere for a trio of safe swats, one of which was a three-bagger. The Smeltermen gathered six hits off complete game winner Ed Langill who punched out ten. Second baseman Howard with two singles was the lone Silver City player to achieve plural hit totals.

D. Patton (L), Wilmes (3) and Maze
Langill (W) and Bruce

(July 9)  Hosting Slocan City was more than generous to the invading Nelson contingent of diamond troopers as they allowed the Lakesiders to slap the horsehide all over the lot for a 16 to 1 conquest. After coming to the aid of starting twirler McDaniels, who injured his flipper on the opening pitch of the game, Nelson’s Harry Pitts spun a tidy three-hitter with eight whiffs in capturing the mound decision. Keystone sacker O’Neill and flychaser Hoskins backed him up offensively with three base raps each. Second baseman Graham had a double and single for the losers.

(July 16)  Nelson took out homestanding Trail 5 to 3 as Ed Langill fired a five-hitter and punched out nine Trailites in taking the hillock decision from Charley Scanlan. On their march to victory, the Lakesiders plated four counters in the seventh chapter to erase a 3 to 0 deficit. O’Neill’s sacrifice fly followed by run-scoring hits off the hickory of Anderson, pinch-hitter McDonald and Langill produced the quartet of tallies in the outburst. Scanlan was the major thorn in the side of Langill, securing three bingles in support of his toiling on the slab. Anderson paced the winners offensively, also collecting a triad of safeties.

(July 26)  In what was characterized as a swatfest for the Silver City ballplayers and a complete meltdown by the Nelson defenders, the invading Trail nine bombarded their Queen City hosts by a 20 to 6 count. The umpires seemed to have shared in the general disorder of the game which the local press classed as a poor exhibition. Ed Langill, Lakesider twirler, had a horrendous off-day, missing his spots repeatedly while floating juicy meat balls down Broadway for the visiting hitters to devour. The Smeltermen scored at least one run in every inning except the first. Five of Trail’s 14 base blows were produced by catcher Pete McIntyre. Silver City chucker Johnny Wilmes was well supported by his mates and kept the homesters from running up a significant amount of offensive damage in any given inning. Three home runs were hit during the contest, Anderson of Nelson connecting for one while Wilmes and Hallett of the winners replicated that feat.

Wilmes (W) and McIntyre
Langill (L) and Bruce

(August 6)  Winning moundsman Patton touched home plate as part of a bottom-of-the-ninth inning rally in a tussle which saw Trail wrest a 3 to 2 walkoff victory from Nelson. Played under dusty and torridly hot conditions, the clash was well-contested throughout. It was a hard game on the shortstops, four of the contest’s six errors being equally divided between the rival middle defenders with Kirby’s faux pas in the ninth costing Nelson a run and the decision. It was pretty well a pitchers’ and infield show up until the fourth spasm when the Lakesiders went ahead by a deuce following consecutive base raps by O’Neill, “Scotty” Notman and Richardson, the latter’s swat driving in both counters. The Smeltermen got on the scoreboard in the seventh when Fred Morrish reached base on a grass cutter single through short and raced all the way around to touch home on McDonald’s Texas Leaguer which fell safely into the Bermuda triangle behind second base. In the last frame, Howard’s two-bagger drove in McDonald, who led all swatters with three safeties, with the tying marker and Patton with the winner.

Patton (W) and McIntyre, Henry (5)

(August 30)  Trail forged ahead in their inter-city series with Nelson this season when they administered an 8 to 5 defeat to the hosting Lakesiders. Both teams banged out nine hits with Dick Drew and first baseman Hallett of the Smelter City nine as well as Ed Langill of the Nelsonites collecting two each. Both of Langill’s swats were three-baggers.

(September 3)  The mighty diamond troopers representing Colville WA doubled the Trail senior Smoke Eaters 10 to 5 in the opener of a two-game exhibition set in the Silver City.

The Trail News opined that: “The visitors fielded a team which was a joy to the eye, and their manners were beyond reproach.”

The weekly periodical went on to acknowledge that the Washingtonians were a better practiced and more polished group of pastimers with a battery of unquestionable superiority. In any event, the invaders hammered Trail slabster Michaely for 15 base blows while the locals managed to gather nine safeties from the offerings of winning hurler Laird, one of which was a ninth-inning solo four-ply blast by catcher Henry which was hit so far over right fielder Underwood’s head that the outer pasture patroller simply stood by and watched it take off into orbit. Colville third baseman Raftis and catcher Hattrup both lit up Michaely for three safe swats.

Michaely (L) and Henry

(September 4)  Before a large and enthusiastic Labor Day crowd, the classy aggregation of Colville WA baseballers took advantage of nearly every scoring opportunity to blank the hosting Trail squad 7 to 0. Only one of the Colville runs was earned as the Smeltermen committed six fielding miscues which helped to parlay the 7 to 5 margin in base hits that the Americans held into greater dividends. Hydorn fanned ten in pitching the win while losing twirler Patton whiffed seven. Flychaser Underwood and backstop Hattrup of the winners both stroked a brace of bingles, a feat replicated by Trail third sacker McDonald. The most comical event witnessed by the appreciative Trail audience occurred in the fourth frame when Mike Butorac of the locals was completely surprised and fell prey to the hidden ball trick employed by wily initial sacker Moss of the Washingtonians.

A nine-team senior loop was the feature of baseball within the East Kootenays during the 1922 season. The league was broken into two divisions with no cross-over games scheduled between the eastern and western segments.


White Spruce


(May 7)  The opening game of the East Kootenay Baseball League, Western division, was played at Wardner and resulted in a 7 to 2 victory for visiting Kimberley.

Musser (W) and Willard
H. Thompson (L), N. Mickens and W. Mickens

(May 7)  As road conditions prevented Yahk from travelling to Wycliffe for a scheduled contest, the Cranbrook team stepped in and an exhibition game was pulled off with Wycliffe posting an 8 to 4 win.

Bamford (L) and Kay
Forbes (W) and Belton

(May 14)  The Fernie baseballers overwhelmed Waldo 27 to 5 as the Eastern section of the East Kootenay Baseball League got underway. Winning pitcher “Salty” Ault took the rest of the day off after completing five innings as his mates had piled up an insurmountable lead.

Shay (L), Ross and Ayres
Ault (W), Reardon (6) and McTeer

(May 14)  Kimberley blasted Wycliffe 23 to 2 for their second win of the early season. Shortstop Vaughan had five hits and outfielder Grant four for the Mining Towners.

Michaely (W), Green and Willard
Forbes (L) and Belton, McPeake

(May 14)  Cranbrook lost their first home game to Wardner by a 10 to 2 count. Wardner’s new chucker, R. “Scotty” Mitchell, was impressive in his debut.

Mitchell (W) and W. Mickens
Lewis (L) and Raymond

(May 21)  Fernie jumped into the lead in the Eastern section of the EKBL when they doubled the hosting White Spruce nine 6 to 3. A three-run ninth inning helped preserve the win. Both teams stroked nine safeties in the contest marred by cold and showery weather. Winning slabman, “Salty” Ault, had his heater blazing as he punched out 16 opposition batters. 

Ault (W) and McTeer
Peters (L) and Barger

(May 21)  In spite of being outhit by a substantial 9 to 5 margin, the Cranbrook diamond troopers, playing on their home turf, edged out Wycliffe 5 to 4 in a hard-fought tussle. Wycliffe first baseman Clark was the top swatsmith in the fracas, nicking the horsehide for four safeties.

Lewis (L) and McPeake
Green (W) and Adamson

(May 21)  Kimberley edged Yahk 2 to 1.

(May 28)  Fernie won their third straight game, pounding the Michel nine by a 15 to 6 score.

(May 28)  The invading Wardner nine annexed a 6 to 2 triumph from the Wycliffe aggregation. Both squads stung the sphere for ten base raps. Catcher McPeake’s two-run double staked Wycliffe to a third-inning lead. Wardner plated one in the fourth and three in the fifth to move ahead for good. In the seventh, they added a pair of insurance runs when winning flinger R. “Scotty” Mitchell started things with a double. Mitchell, along with teammate F. Thompson drilled three safeties, a feat replicated by shortpatcher Ferko of the Wycliffe contingent. Both Mitchell and losing tosser “Stiffy” Lewis, well-known to each other from seasons as rival baseballers in Calgary, rang up ten strikeouts.

Lewis (L) and McPeake

(May 28)  Yahk defeated Cranbrook 7 to 1.

(May 28)  The scheduled EKBL game between Waldo and White Spruce was postponed by mutual consent of the two clubs to give the Waldo club time to strengthen their team. White Spruce then secured an exhibition engagement with Blairmore to fill in the program. The game resulted in a 13 to 6 win for the White Spruce aggregation. Three hits off winning pitcher Peters’ deliveries, coupled with a bad error in the outfield, allowed Blairmore to score twice in the top of the opening frame. That lead was quickly erased when White Spruce struck for six runs in the bottom half of that canto. The victors further increased further the gap when they added two more in the second spasm and the rout was on.

(May 31)  Wycliffe defeated Cranbrook 3 to 0 in a fast exhibition game on the Cranbrook diamond. Winning pitcher “Stiffy” Lewis breezed seven in tossing the six-hit shutout. His mates collected just six hits off losing hurler Green but made the best of their opportunities. First sacker Clark doubled and singled for the victors while Cranbrook outfielder Argue laced a pair of one-baggers.

(June 4)  Kimberley lost for the first time this season, dropping a 9 to 6 decision to the slugging Cranbrook contingent.

(June 4)  The inability to hit in the pinches accounted, in large part, for Creston’s 14 to 10 exhibition game defeat against Wycliffe of the EKBL.

Kimberley (L) and Telford
Lewis (W) and McPeake

(June 11)  In a friendly exhibition tilt, Creston had no trouble disposing of Yahk, current runner-up team in the Western Division of the East Kootenay Baseball League, 19 to 6. Yahk third baseman Young, with two of his team’s eight hits, was the lone player from the vanquished nine who didn’t appear to have an off day. 

Brayne (L), Robinson (9) and Redman, Baum (7)
Bleumenauer (W) and Telford

(June 11)  Wycliffe climbed out of the Western Division cellar by downing Kimberley 9 to 8 in a nail-biter played in Wycliffe. Winning flinger “Stiffy” Lewis won his own game by drilling a full-count, two-out, two-run double which ended things with a walkoff triumph. First baseman Clark of the winners and losing tosser Musser of the Mining Towners both nicked the apple for a trio of safe swats. 

Michaely, Musser (L) (9) and Johnson
Lewis (W) and Ferko

(June 11)  Cranbrook travelled to Wardner and came away as 3 to 1 losers in a well-pitched game by both hurlers. Disputed umpire decisions in the eighth inning, which led to a pair of Wardner tallies, marred the contest.

Green (L) and Argue
Mitchell (W) and W. Mickens

(June 18)  Wycliffe dropped Yahk 7 to 2.

(June 18)  Kimberley blasted Wardner 15 to 9.

(June 18)  Holding the White Spruce swatters scoreless for eight out of the nine innings played, “Salty” Ault of Fernie maintained his undefeated record and Fernie won easily by a score of 7 to 1. Although he found himself in a few tight jams, Ault always seemed to be able to dig himself out. His batterymate, Gord McTeer, had a pair of doubles in the fracas. Losing twirler Peters didn’t have the stellar defensive backing that Ault received but rang up 11 strikeouts to six for his mound opponent.

(June 25)  Wardner ran roughshod over Yahk to the tune of 21 to 4 in an Western Division clash. The rout began in the opening panel when catcher W. Mickens hammered the horsehide for a three-run circuit-blast. Winning hurler R. “Scotty” Mitchell punched out a dozen Yahk batters in going the route.

(June 25)  Cranbrook manhandled Kimberley to the tune of 10 to 5.

(July 9)  The Wycliffe band of diamondeers continued their winning ways of late by knocking off first-place Wardner 7 to 4. Calgary expatriates C. “Stiffy” Lewis and R. “Scotty” Mitchell locked horns on the hillock for bragging rights with Lewis emerging as the victor on this occasion. Mitchell was raked over for a dozen Wycliffe safeties while the Wardner nine touched Lewis for nine bingles. Third baseman R. Whitehead, recently recruited from the Nelson ball club, had three hits for the winners. Mitchell was best with the baton for the vanquished squad, belting a triple and single.

(July 12)  Fernie blew a huge lead and tasted defeat for the first time this season in EKBL action when White Spruce nine plated a ten-spot in the eighth canto to come away with a 16 to 14 win in a sloppily-played match. Third baseman Zeith and catcher Barger had three safe swats apiece for the winners, a total of bingles also attained by second baseman Dunlap of Fernie.

(July 16)  Wycliffe won their fourth straight EKBL game by drubbing Cranbrook 13 to 4. The win for Wycliffe elevates them into a tie with Kimberley for second spot in the circuit’s Western section. From the first inning, it was a walkaway for Wycliffe as Cranbrook had a tough time putting together any sustained batting spree against winning flinger “Stiffy” Lewis. Deprived of the use of his “spitball”, losing pitcher Green did not show his usual effectiveness although the defensive support that he received was brutal.  

Green (L) and McPeake
Lewis (W) and Ferko

(July 16)  An uncharacteristic defensive meltdown, behind ace twirler “Sandy” Ault, cost the Fernie diamond troopers a 4 to 2 setback at the hands of Michel in a game that was designated as an exhibition contest. Ault was his usual dominant stud on the rubber, whiffing 17, but ten errors by his mates cost him dearly. The game was originally scheduled to be an EKBL match but when the Michel nine appeared at the Fernie ball park with an imported battery, they forfeited the game 9 to 0 and settled for an exhibition joust instead so that they would not be deprived of their share of the gate receipts. Albertans “Slim” Haynes on the bump and his hand-picked receiver Alex Allan behind the dish were the mercenaries recruited by Michel for the engagement. The Fernie batters nicked Haynes for 11 well-scattered safeties and led for most of the way but their implosion afield in the eighth allowed the visitors to erase a 2 to 0 deficit and put up a four-spot for the win. Haynes rang up 13 whiffs in his complete game victory. Ault nicked his mound opponent for a double and single. Teammates Dunlap and Ashton duplicated that result. Michel’s eight safeties were all singles.

(July 22)  Kimberley pushed Wycliffe back into third spot of the Western Division of the EKBL by dumping the hosting Lumbertowners 9 to 7 in a rowdy tussle. Bad blood between the combatants resulted in much undeserved verbal abuse to both opposing players and the umpires. The Miners knocked losing tosser “Stiffy” Lewis from the bump after two stanzas and, although reliever Hollister did a good job, errors behind him prevented the Lumbermen from catching up. Wycliffe outhit the Mining Towners 11 to 8 but the winners had the edge in the power department as both first baseman R. Crerar and third sacker Coen belted home runs. Wycliffe catcher Ferko and outfielder Noble both stroked a double and a single in a losing cause.

Lewis (L), Hollister (3) and Ferko

(July 23)  Wardner edged visiting Cranbrook 3 to 2 in a game replete with both errors and good plays on the part of both teams. The winners banged out nine base hits to just four for their foes and also led in the miscue department, committing six compared to four for Cranbrook. The visitors did not appear to be weakened by the unpardonable loss of their ace chucker Green as they never missed a beat with new tosser R. Armstrong, who fanned nine, on the hillock. Winning slabman R. “Scotty” Mitchell recorded 15 punchouts in going the distance. Wardner shortstop H. Mickens, with two safeties, was the lone batter from either team to achieve plural hit totals.

(July 23)  Kimberley slipped by Wycliffe 9 to 7.

(July 30)  Fernie clinched the regular-season pennant for the eastern end of the EKBL by blanking White Spruce 3 to 0. Before nearly 1,000 hometown fans, “Salty” Ault tossed a three-hitter, yielding two of those bingles to White Spruce catcher Barger, and rang up 11 strikeouts in earning the shutout win. The result was in doubt for four-and-a-half frames as both teams were held scoreless. T. Wilson’s two-base hit drove in the initial Fernie tally in the bottom half of the fifth. They added a two more markers in the sixth when third sacker Shand singled in B.Wilson and later scored himself when first baseman Ashton singled. Fernie shortstop and leadoff hitter B. Wilson had three of the seven hits that losing pitcher Peters surrendered, a double and two singles.

Peters (L) and Barger
Ault (W) and McTeer

(July 30)  Kimberley outlasted Wardner 8 to 5.

(August 6)  First-place Kimberley defeated Wardner 9 to 8 in a ten-inning Western Division game.

(August 6)  Wycliffe won from Cranbrook 9 to 0.

(August 13)  By beating Kimberley in their final league game, Wycliffe tied with them for top-spot in the Western Division of the EKBL.

(August 20)  For the first time this season, a team from the Western section of the EKBL locked horns with an Eastern section opponent. In this exhibition tilt, Eastern pennant-winners winners Fernie nosed out Wycliffe, Western co-leaders, 4 to 3. Fernie knocked Wycliffe starter “Stiffy” Lewis from the hill in the fourth panel when they took a 4 to 0 lead. Reliever Hollister blanked the Fernie squad the rest of the contest, holding them to just two hits.“Salty” Ault, for the winners, pitched his usual steady game and, only in the seventh, when the Lumbermen got to him for  trio of tallies, did he weaken. Keystone sacker Bishop led the Coal Miners at the dish, singling on three occasions.

(August 27)  Kimberley defeated Wycliffe 11 to 8 in a sudden-death tie-breaker to capture the Western Division title of the EKBL and the right to meet Eastern Division winners Fernie.


(September 5)  Although Kimberley had the upper hand in the base hit department, registering six to just three for the Coal Miners, Eastern Division champion Fernie made their bingles count and defeated the visitors 2 to 1 in a well-played and exciting EKBL sudden-death finale. Flychaser C. Colton had two of the three base hits garnered by the victors, both singles, the last of which drove in the winning run. Outer pasture patroller Cosgriffe had two safe swats for the Western Division titlists.
