With the demise of the Western Canada Baseball League, Lloydminster would soldier on with an entry in the Northern Saskatchewan League. 

The North Battleford Beavers were the cream of the crop winning both the pennant and playoff for the championship.  In the deciding game of the best-of-seven final, Beavers scored the winning run on a squeeze play in the 9th inning to top Kindersley 3-2.

The GreenCaps, with Curly Williams at the helm, finished in the middle of the pack in their initial season.

Jim Wiley of the Kindersley Klippers won the batting crown swatting the ball for a .421 average, well ahead of runner-up Kenny Nelson of North Battleford, .386, and John Ford, also of the Beavers, at .372.

Neil UrlacherNeil Urlacher (left) of Neilburg Monarchs topped the circuit in home runs, 7, and runs batted in, 32.

Bennie Griggs of North Battleford and Tommy Taylor of Lloydminster tied for the lead in pitching wins, each with nine.

The Beavers' Roy Rowley had the best winning percentage, with a 5-1 record, and finished in the top ten in batting with a .359 average.

Wayne LeBereEd StefureakIn the Southern League, Wayne LeBere (left) fired a three-hit shutout to led Moose Jaw to a 7-0 win over Regina to capture the best-of-seven final in five games. 

It was LeBere's third playoff triumph. 

Al AshEd Stefureak (above right) of Regina captured the batting crown with a .390 mark.

He topped the loop in hits, 55, and home runs, 8.  Stefureak captured the Heinie Rogers memorial trophy, presented annually to the Southern League's most valuable player.

Teammate Al Ash (left) was the leading pitcher during the regular season with a 9-1 won/lost record. Lorne Houk of the Notre Dame Hounds, with an 8 - 1 record, was second.


(June 26)  Mr. Justice J.V.H. Milvain of the Alberta Supreme Court has awarded Clark Rex, the former Edmonton playing manager, $1,179 and costs in an action against the Eskimo Baseball Association. Rex filed a statement of claim against the association, its president A.R. Edwards, office manager R.J. Sharp and general manager Lou Hiatt after he was dismissed from the club's employ last July.

He claimed $1.393 for wages, rent and an airplane fare from Los Angeles. Rex said he was dismissed without reasonable cause. The defendants charged he had behaved in a manner detrimental to the club and said they were fining him the balance of his salary.
