Red Deer ended up with two teams.  Bob Worobetz  manager of the M&K Generals did not wish to continue in the Alberta Major Baseball League and decided to form a barnstorming team to play in Alaska and in tournaments and exhibitions on the prairies.

With that news, Red Deer put together another team, the Border Players to suit up in the AMBL. Veteran Marty Coil returned to manage the Generals while Fred Cardwell and Al Herback took over senior roles for the new club. A few players made appearances with both teams.

Red Deer Border Players captured the AMBL title with a 12-6 victory over Edmonton Tigers in the final of a five-team tournament.

The 1977 Saskatchewan Major League, Alberta Major League playoffs saw the top two teams, the pennant-winning Unity Cardinals and the runner-up Moose Jaw Devons, bounced from the post-season as the third and fourth-place teams fought for the SMBL title.

The Regina Red Sox, third-place finishers during the regular season, topped Eston in the best-of-three final to captured the championship for the second straight season.

Paul NelsonPaul Nelson (left) of the Moose Jaw Devons won the the 1977 batting champioship of the Saskatchewan Major Baseball League. Nelson compiled a .437 average in 71 at bats to runaway with the title.  Teammate Ned Andreoni was the runnerup at .409 with Roy Kemp of Saskatoon third with a .385 average. Andy Logan of Regina topped the circuit in home runs with 8 and Ned Andreoni of Moose Jaw had 24 runs batted, best in the loop. 

Randy SawaRandy Sawa (right) of Regina had the top won-lost record, finishing with a perfect 5-0 mark. Rod Gehring of Unity finished with the lowest ERA, 2.22, and won four of five decisions.

In Manitoba, the Northern Division pennant-winners, Binscarth Orioles downed Hamiota Red Sox to win the Manitoba Senior Baseball League championship.
