1970 BC Snapshots     

1970_Inglis_slide

Clark Inglis, Vernon Luckies shortstop, slides toward home in the eighth inning of the final of the Kamloops Labour Day Tournament at Riverside Park. Inglis tried to score from first on a double, but was thrown out at the plate. However, the Luckies went on to defeat the Victoria All-Stars 5-2 to win the event. The Luckies' Don Archer (far left) gives Inglis the "get down" sign. Gordie Nuyens looks on beside Umpire Frank Rota as Mike McAvoy takes the throw to tag Inglis.

Batting kings !

Watson, from Smithers, BC, is better known as a National Hockey League defenceman, mainly with the Philadelphia Flyers. Watson's brother Jim also played baseball with Kamloops and hockey with the Flyers.
