Western Canada Baseball, Player List     


AdobeThe roster lists are now in separate pdf files and require a suitable program to read the material.  Click the Adobe icon to download the popular Adobe pdf reader (free).

The rosters are divided into specific groups - Western Canada, Basin League, Ontario Inter-County and South Minnesota League. Rosters are divided into decades, with an arrow (>>>) at the right to indicate the player also participated in the following decade. If the cell colour of an invidual player is different from the base cell colour, that individual began his career in a previous era. 


Not all players that we have listed on the roster pages are shown on the Player List. For a way too many we have only last names so we've begun sifting through to eliminate some of those for whom we have just a last name and who played for just one season.  Of course, we'll continue to keep a file of all names hoping that in time we'll be able to further identify more and more of them. 

Also, some work now needs to be done to ensure these roster files now match the year by year rosters shown on the yearly roster pages. Over time, some spellings have changed and first names added which are reflected here, but not always on the yearly pages. That's a project for another day.

As of the latest update we have listings for more than 55-thousand individual players.

It would be a good idea to keep the code page open while studying the roster pdf pages.
