Dodger Lewis 1926Exhibition and tournament ball highlighted the prairie summer. The Regina Balmorals, with star acquisition Dodger Lewis, took on all comers, including a team with female players, the whiskered ones from Benton Harbor -- the House of David, Hap Felsch's nine from Scobey, Swede Risberg's Plentywood squad, the Oslers from Toronto, Climax, Shaunavon, Havre, Virden, Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Lethbridge, Vulcan, Moose Jaw and more. They played more than 60 games.  >>> more

After the Regina Balmorals headed west for an extended road swing through Alberta to complete their semi-pro obligations for the 1926 season, the amateur Northside Senior League in Regina came into greater prominence within the Capital City. Having its most competitive season ever, all three teams in the circuit finished with identical records and a .500 winning percentage. In the round-robin playoff format that followed, the Darke's Hardware team emerged as the city representative in the provincial playoffs.

In the Hub City, on the other hand, the Saskatoon Elks waltzed to a comparatively easy city title, registering comfortable leads in both halves of the schedule. The Elks' management had spent considerable time and effort during the off-season recruiting new blood and the additions proved invaluable to the fortunes of the club in 1926. >>> more
