Mid-Western Manitoba Baseball League

A loose association of three teams, the 1946 Mid-Western Manitoba Baseball League had a short schedule in which member clubs played semi-regular games against each other yet kept sufficient open dates for exhibition and tournament action which seemed to be a priority. No record of any league standings was ever found nor did any playoffs take place.

Teams in the 1946 Mid-Western Manitoba Baseball League
Brandon Greys

The first half of the schedule :

June 3 - Brandon at Virden
June 6 - Hamiota at Brandon
June 10 - Virden at Hamiota
June 13 - Virden at Brandon
June 17 - Hamiota at Virden
June 20 - Brandon at Hamiota
June 24 - Virden at Brandon
June 27 - Brandon at Hamiota
July 4 - Hamiota at Virden

(June 3)   In the opening game of he Mid-Western Manitoba League Virden whipped Brandon Greys 9-1 in an abbreviated, six inning, fixture. The homesters jumped into a three-run lead in the first inning and added four more in the second. Harry Kerfoot, leadoff batter for Virden led the winners with three hits. Brandon was late in arriving on the field and the game was held up accordingly.  Cook went all the way for the pitching win. Bob Howe took the loss.

(June 20)   A large hometown crowd saw Hamiota top Brandon 8-3. Harold Lindsay held the Greys to six hits and rang up ten strikeouts while walking only one. The locals collected nine hits from Trev Fisher who fanned nine and walked three. Nels Woods of Hamiota had the longest clout of the game, a fly ball between left and centre fields which went for a homer as Woods scampered around the diamond. The only other extra base hit was a double by "Joker" Robertson.

(June 25)  A 300-mile one-day jaunt proved too much for the Page, North Dakoka, Red Sox Tuesday as the visitors were hammered 12-1 by the Brandon Greys. Page stopped off for the exhibition game en route to a tournament at Russell Wednesday, another at Yorkton on Thursday and a third at Oak Lake on Friday.  Trev Fisher went the first seven innings for the win.  A six-run outburst in the sixth inning put the Greys ahead to stay.
