History Corner - Yorkton Junior Cardinals Baseball Team 1958

History Corner was devoted to presentations based on records of the Yorkton Sports Hall of Fame and Museum in summer 2009. The City of Yorkton Archives wishes to thank Murray Wagner who authored the stories to match the photos.
Top row: Barry Sharp, Steve Popowich, George Gress, Emil Bulitz (Manager), Richard Ong, Garry Von, Freddie Windjack (Coach); Bottom row: Neil McEacheran, Henry Kereliuk, Darcy Loster, Lloyd Johnson; Orest Achtemichuk, Jake Skilnick, Wayne Smith, Gerry Arnt. When the snow disappeared and spring arrived, hockey season was over and it was time to bring out the bats and balls for baseball season. The game was earnestly played on school diamonds, and important games were watched by numerous spectators at the best ball field, Jubilee Park, next to the old Arena on Front Street. This team, managed by Emil Bulitz and coached by Fred Windjack, featured some of the best young players in the Yorkton area in 1958.
Many of these athletes played hockey at a high level during the winter.
The above History Corner originally ran in the August 5, 2009 edition of Yorkton This Week.
