Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - January 29, 1913, Lethbridge, Alberta LET^gBftlDGE DAILY HERALD Wednesday, January ,29, 191ft. HUE HAT LIS UP FOR THE Enthusiastic Over Prospects of Professional Baseball -Time d:__ for Game Again Medicine Hat, Alta., Jan. 29.- Messrs. Gray and Horner of Edmon-tbn,- and Sam Savage, of Calgary, made a most favorable impression- in Medicine Hat yesterday with their proposition to reorganize the Western Canada Baseball league to include Edmonton, Calgary, Lethbridgc, Medicine Hat, \Moose Jaw, Regina, Saskatoon and Prince Albert. The Alberta cities are ripe for the game and if the Saskatchewan cities come through a strong eight-club league can be formed. ;: There is no oity in Western Canada enjoying as much prosperity as Medicine Hat is just now and with everybody flush with coin, prospects never looked brighter. The spirit of the timos Itere demands baseball and the fans are bound to have it. The agreement reached between the Calgary and Edmonton delegates at Leth-bridge Was accepted here and the opinion is.that the league will be a great success if it goes through. Medicine Hat won the pennant in 1909 in the old and original eight-club circuit, and this fact may be taken as a criterion as to the celebrated gas city's calibre as a baseball town, even though the franchise the following year has to be shifted to Saskatoon for the want of patron* age. ' Medicine Hat is a new place since then. From a plodding town it has; risen to be a-city thriving with industrial .enterprises that make its future exceedingly .right for baseball -and all, other kinds of sports. But , bajfifeball' has the limelight position just  now. 2Phe - Hat's foremost ball magnates ar4' all in the south at the present 'time, but a number of the enthusiasts/at home who are posted on the hall situation met the promoters and listened. to their plans and figures. TBe f^tct that Mr. Eckstorm of Leth-brlgge, had accepted their proposals had considerable weight with the Ideal man, and if Lethbridge goes in-tO>the .league so will Medicine Hat. Messrs. Fleming and Pirigle are expected home soon and Messrs. Sav-iase and Gray state that they will the clubs of-the league here to arrange the league details. . ' ? v * ? THORPE TO PLAY ?
