Northern Alberta 1949 Game Reports     

Ball Season Opens

Fairview's 1949 baseball team came from behind to win its opening league game against Hines Creek 5-3 in 6 1/2 innings here on Wednesday evening. Making its debut in the North Peace League, the H.C. team made a creditable effort and with the breaks might have gone home a winner.

It was a cold, damp night especially for the pitchers. (Fairview Post, May 18, 1949)



In a sudden-death baseball final here Sunday afternoon, Fairview coasted to an 8-0 score over Grimshaw and copped the North Peace River league crown for 1949.  The MacNamara trophy goes with the victory.

John Smart on the mound for Fairview set Grimshaw down for three hits in the nine innings and was in full command throughout. Laurie Shaw worked behind the bat. Fairview's infield was clicking and turned in two neat double plays. 

Ed Konowalyk, a good pitcher, made a creditable stand on the hill for Grimshaw, but his infield support was erratic and his troops showed no talent whatever at the plate. (The Fairview Post, September 14, 1949)
