A new team in the Manitoba Senior League East, the Steinbach Millers started off slowly dropping their first six games before catching fire and finishing the season by qualifying for the playoffs with 12 – 10 won-lost record.

Brandon won the game 4 to 3 and the series four games to two. The Hamiota Red Sox pitcher delivering the fateful pitch is righthander Glennis Scott. His batterymate is catcher John Wright. Chapple was the RBI leader during the MSBL west regular season.
