Remember when: 1947

The Asker district east of Ponoka was always known for its great baseball teams

The Asker district east of Ponoka was always known for its great baseball teams, and after the hard day’s work had been done, they could be found on country diamonds playing spirited games before avid crowds against opponents from towns and districts.

Some of the early baseball legends were James Longman, Martin, Art and Thor Krefting, Jack Ramsay, Les Irvin, Paul Woyen, Harold Kraft, Holly Arser and Gus Edinger. The tradition has always carried on!
