1948 British Columbia Snapshots     

Bill Prior

 

 

Bill Prior was a one-man show for Ben's Bombers the 1948 pennant winners in the Victoria senior league.

The right-hander was the loop's top hurler during the regular season with a 9-1 won-lost record and 2.40 ERA.  He fanned 113 in 70 innings of work. Prior also captured the batting crown as he compiled a .364 average and also led the senior circuit in home runs, 4, total bases 52, and, with 8 doubles, tied for the league lead.

Prior was a super utility man for the Bombers playing every position except right field for the Bombers.
