Saskatoon Exhibition Tournament   

1922 marked the beginning of the Exhibition Tournament in Saskatoon. The inaugural affair was a ltitle confusing as teams were being added and dropped right up until the day before the start of play. Macklin, which had been removed from the schedule as it was reported they were unable to make the trip, decided to come after all while Drake and North Battleford, seen as possible tournament favourites, were compelled to drop out. 

(July 18)  In the opening game of the Saskatoon Tournament, Conquest dumped Biggar 16-9. Third baseman Bissitt was a hero for the winners belted out four hits, including a home run and two triples, and scored four times. F. Beavis and McGuire each had three hits. Morris allowed ten hits in going the distance for the win.

(July 19)  Dodger Lewis fired a three-hitter and set down 24 batters by strikeout to lead Rosetown to a 3-2 win over Macklin at the $1,000 tournament at Saskatoon. On a single by Hansen, Rosetown scored the winning run in the bottom of the 9th after Macklin had taken advantage of a pair of errors to tie the score in the top of the final frame. Lewis and second baseman Gil Stokke each had two hits for Rosetown.  The 24 strikeouts set a record for either amateur or pro ball in Saskatoon.
