The Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame has announced their 2017 inductees and two local teams are in the mix.
The Ebb and Flow Lakers (1990-96) are honoured as the Small Community Team inductee, while the Gilbert Plains Legion Bantams (1965-68) will be added to the Special Category.
The 21st annual induction banquet takes place June 3, 2017 in Morden.
The pride of Ebb and Flow First Nation, the Ebb and Flow Lakers have been an integral part of their community. The early 90s Lakers were a dominant tournament team with an estimates .900 in Manitoba, and in Saskatchewan, Alberta, and even Minnesota.
Minnesota is where the Lakers achieved their greatest success in 1995: a win in the North American Indigenous Games final 4-1 in Blaine, MN over a state selected Minnesota team. Archie McIvor pitched a three-hitter for the Lakers in the win.
The Gilbert Plains Legion Bantam dominated bantam ball in Manitoba and Western Canada for a four-year period during the 1960s. Coached my MB Baseball Hall of Fame inductee Mel Stoughton, the team won five Manitoba baseball titles in four years, and three Western Canada championships.
The team advanced to a Bantam 'A' classification after winning the Manitoba and Western Canada titles as a 'B' team in 1965 and 1966, and 1967 provincial title. In 1967 they played in the 'A' playoffs, winning the province, but were finalists in the Western Canada title.
In 1968 they captured the Manitoba and Western Canada Championships.
The Dauphin Kings were once again the losing party in the extra period in Steinbach on back-to-back nights.
The Pistons scored the game winner on a 3-on-1 in overtime during Pink in the Rink night in Steinbach.
Brandon Holtby had his second strong outing in as many nights for the Kings, stopping 38 of 41 shots.
Riese Gaber scored his first of the season to open the scoring. The goal he was awarded on Tuesday in Waywayseecappo was actually scored by #13 Graeme Hore.
Defenseman Dawson Bacon scored his first goal as a Dauphin King.
Steinbach got the tie to force overtime when Piston player Carter Chorney hit a Kings player from behind, and three Kings came to their teammate's defense. Four Pistons resumed play and Troy Williams scored to tie.
While the Kings main opponent was wearing pink on Saturday, perhaps their biggest opponents were wearing black and white stripes.
The Kings are next in action October 28th in Winkler, and October 29th in Selkirk before returning home to play the Winkler Flyers November 4th.
