(August 10) In spite of home runs by Art Plotsky, Harvey Blaney and Harold Crane, the visiting Medicine Hat baseballers fell to the Moose Jaw All-Stars 11 to 10 in the matinee of an exhibition double bill in Moose Jaw. The Stars completed the sweep by capturing the second contest 5 to 2.

Moose Jaw rebounded to record a 7 to 1 victory in the late game, shortened to 7 innings because of darkness. Robinson again pounded out a circuit clout.
(September 2) With one exception, the shorthanded Detroit Colored Giants failed to make much of an impression in their first exhibition game in Regina. Losers of a 19 to 8 decision to the Regina Nationals, only the hitting of losing pitcher "Big Bill" Smith had the 1,000 or so baseball fans in attendance in awe. In consecutive at bats, Smith slammed out a pair of mammoth home runs. Catcher Eric Quist of the Reginans also had a homer. Hec McLeod, with 6 innings of work, got the mound win..
(September 5) The Detroit Colored Giants, this time with a full roster of players, blanked the Regina Nationals 6 to 0 in another exhibition tilt. Joe Sampson, a speedball artist, handcuffed the locals on 3 safeties. Hec McLeod gave up 7 hits in taking the loss.
(September 7) A combined starting group of 6 Regina Nationals plus 3 members of the Moose Jaw All-Stars went on to edge the Detroit Colored Giants 4 to 3 at the Exhibition Grounds. "Swainey" Swainson of the Nats hurled the complete game win.
(September 9) Scoring eight runs in the top of the 8th inning, the Detroit Colored Giants dumped the Regina-MooseJaw Combines 13 to 9 in a sloppily played exhibition contest. Entering the disastrous 8th, the Combines held a one-run lead but then they blew a tire. Joe Haberman of the Southern Leaguers and the Giants' Andy Love had 4-baggers in this set-to while outfielder Ray Hurr of the Detroiters had 4 hits.
Some 2,000 south Saskatchewan baseball fans were exposed to a rare treat when Earl Mack's touring major leaguers visited Regina in October for a post-season doubleheader with a group of players from Southern League squads. Nine days later, as they were finishing off their western Canada tour, the big leaguers stopped off in Moose Jaw and played a single game before an estimated crowd of 3,000.
The complete roster of the travelling big-leaguers consisted of:
Catchers - Bill Dickey (New York Yankees), Luke Sewell (Cleveland Indians)
Pitchers - "Lefty" Grove (Philadelphia Athletics), Rube Walberg (Philadelphia Athletics), Earl Whitehill (Detroit Tigers), Clint Brown (Cleveland Indians)
First Base - Joe Judge (Washington Senators)
Second Base - Charlie Gehringer (Detroit Tigers)
Third Base - Ralph "Red" Kress (Chicago White Sox)
Shortstop - Eric McNair (Philadelphia Athletics)
Outfielders - Henry "Heinie" Manush (Washington Senators), Bing Miller (Philadelphia Athletics), Floyd "Babe" Herman (Cincinnati Reds)
Four players on this roster (Manush, Gehringer, Dickey and Grove) would ultimately be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
On the beautiful fall day of October 12 at Regina's Exhibition park, the big leaguers beat the Southern League amateurs 8 to 3 in the noon event and then hammered the same contingent 15 to 0 in the mid-afternoon finale.
"Lefty" Grove of the Philadelphia Athletics had both the Southern Leaguers and the fans gasping at his dazzling speed, fast breaking balls and control. In the four innings of the opener that he worked, he collected 11 strikeouts. Only Eric Quist, a catcher from the Regina Nationals, was able to garner a safety off the future hall-of-famer. Quist and Johnny Stoyand, also from the Nats, were able to collect a brace of raps in the curtain raiser. Red Kress of the Chicago White Sox and Bing Miller of the Philadelphia Athletics both homered for the Macksters in that game.
The second encounter was a complete runaway as only Moose Jaw's Danny McKenna was able to register a base hit for the South Saskatchewan group as he touched up Clint Brown of the Cleveland Indians for a single. Joe Judge of the Washington Senators and Philadelphia's Miller, with his second of the day, poled out dingers for the guys from the "show". Hurlers on the South Saskatchewan squad who were able to record a whiff against the big-leaguers included Hec McLeod of the Nationals who struck out Luke Sewell of the Cleveland Indians in the first game. McLeod's teammate ,"Swainey" Swainson, set both Eric McNair of the Philadelphia Athletics and the White Sox' Kress down on strikes in the same inning of the second encounter while pick-up Elmer "Lefty" White of the Estevan Miners fanned both "Babe" Herman of the Cincinnati Reds and the Athletics' McNair.
Following a swing through Alberta, the Macksters returned to southern Saskatchewan to face the Moose Jaw Southern League squad in an October 22 match, a game which they dominated in every way as the 14 to 2 score would imply.
Cleveland's Clint Brown thrilled the packed stands with his slants from the mound during the initial four frames but "Lefty" Grove outshone everyone, letting the locals off easy at the beginning of his four-inning stint but, when he opened up, simply overwhelming the Stars with his blazers. Initially wearing a pair of gloves while tossing on this frosty fall day, Grove took it easy on the locals and gave up singles to Eddie Scott, Johnny Dawson, "Sandy" Thomson and Emery Cawsey. Brown allowed singles by Jim MacDonald and "Babe" Brossard, a pick-up from the Regina Nationals. Cawsey was credited with a second hit, a ninth inning single off baseball comedian Al Schact who took the hill to provide game-concluding comic relief. Veteran Moose Jaw chucker George Haigh was the only local pitcher to record a strikeout against the big leaguers, fanning Chicago's Ralph "Red" Kress. Second baseman Charlie Gehringer of the Detroit Tigers blasted a pair of homers for the major leaguers.
