INDUCTEE 2006 - TEAM
 1904 Wetaskiwin Cubs Men's Baseball Champs


 


" The first team from Wetaskiwin to win a
District of Alberta, NWT championship"

Officially, in 1904, the city of Wetaskiwin was within the District of Alberta, NWT. That year, the President of Calgary Brewing Co. challenged and sponsored a Provincial series in baseball. Fourteen teams from centres on the C&E Railway accepted the challenge ‑ Wetaskiwin Cubs emerged the champions. They received the large silver beer keg trophy and had the team picture placed on cigar boxes with the title "Alberta Champions". Wetaskiwin was the best in the West!

The Wetaskiwin Cubs Team was made up of players who participated on district teams. The players were J. McLaughlin, C. Steltz, B. Pittman, J. McCartney, Eddie Dahl, Billie Barrett, Fred Nelson, J. Fowler, J. Martin and Harold Deeton. Manager Joe Richards and catcher Del Gauchee likely were the key leaders.
