The Regina Morning Leader reported that the most successful baseball club in Saskatchewan during the summer of 1924 had been the team representing Wapella. Playing in 56 games during their season, the Wapella club had picked up 51 victories against only 5 losses; scored 131 runs against 20; took part in 20 tournaments, winning first money in 16, second in one and sharing in third in the others. Their total tournament prize money totaled approximately $2,600. Members of the Wapella baseball club - Pat McNeally C and manager, H. Rowbotham LF, R. Morrison RF, J. McNeally 2B and captain, L. Clements LF, F. Embury 1B, E. Schram RF, W. Meredith P, G. Hitchings 3B, A. R. Armstrong P.     


Alf BennettSaskatoon's Knights of Columbus took the Saskatchewan senior amateur title in 1924 downing Moose Jaw in the deciding game of a best-of-five final series after defeating Regina in a semi-final competition. Alf Bennett, was the hero for the winners pitching in eight of ten playoff games. Seven were complete games, six wins and a tie. He hurled in relief in the other. Two of the wins came in a double-header.


In Edmonton, the local Intermediate loop lost its biggest drawing card. Under the headline "Colored Giants Are Out of Intermediate League", the report in the Edmonton Bulletin of June 27th, noted that Shiloh "the famous colored aggregation of ball tossers" had apparently dropped out of the league.  Four of the Shiloh players that were to have played on the team this year were sent to Winnipeg to take over jobs there and its one of the reasons that the team has had to quit.


Harold NelsonIn Manitoba, Harold Nelson was Carberry`s only pitcher in 1924 when the team won 25 straight games, then lost one, then won 11 more. Nelson struck out 18 in a 9 inning exhibition game against the Brandon Greys in 1925. In one tournament he pitched three 7 inning games and faced only 23 batters in each game.
