COWICHAN VALLEY SENIOR BASEBALL
Within the Cowichan Valley, Duncan had no baseball, senior level or otherwise, during the summer of 1935. A circuit comprising four teams from Chemainus, however, was formed to compensate for the near demise of the inter-city senior aggregation from that community of a season previous. A select team from the loop did get together for a July twin-bill in Nanaimo but that was about it for the campaign.
(July 21) Chemainus baseballers visited Nanaimo for a double-header with the Nanaimo Merchants. They lost the first game 11 to 4 and played to a 1 – 1 seven-inning tie in the second encounter. Scoring four times in each of the first and second stanzas, the Merchants sailed to victory in the opener.

Work, pitching for Chemainus in the late tilt, allowed nine scattered hits, fanned ten and did not issue a walk. Kulai of the Nanaimo nine was even more impressive on the hill, yielding only five hits, walking two and whiffing 13.
