1950 Saskatoon Legion     

Saskatoon Legion

We believe this to be the 1950 edition of the Saskatoon Legion.  Not many IDs so far - Back row 2nd from the left is Gordie Howe, extreme right I believe Archie "Lefty" Arnold. Front row, 3rd from the left is manager Ralph Mabee and 4th from the left probably John Carpenter, and to the right of Carpenter (#16) looks like lefty pitcher Stan Currie. Back row, 5th from the right is Ray Hamilton.  I suspect, the player in the front row, 3rd from the right might be Harry O'Brien.

This is the roster we have for the club :  Saskatoon Legion : Almas Bernie 2B, Arnold Archie(Lefty) LHP, Burke Bill "Slim" RHP, Carpenter John RHP/OF, Clouston Merv OF, Crowder Lee OF (also Swift Current), Currie Stan "Lefty" LHP/OF, Dawes Bobby UT/P, Dials Bill P (also Swift Current), Derksen Merv OF, Ens Danny SS, Hamilton Ray 1B/OF, Hanson Lowell C/1B, Howe Gordie SS/1B, Howe Vic OF/3B, Johnson Arnold OF, Joss Eddie SS, Lanman C, Leakos Jim OF/C, Mabee Ralph MGR, Maroniuk Johnny P/OF (also North Battleford), McCullough Chuck OF, Mitchell Cameron P, O'Brien Harry OF/IF, Pizzey Vic P, Reynoldson Ron P/C (also Prince Albert), Sasseville Bobby C/3B, Simms Toby IF/OF (also Swift Current), Sirota Alex P, Swick Julius "Jules" IF, Tatum George LHP/OF
