To quote Don Pilling, who knew George so well: "Some of the most exciting baseball limes in southern Alberta history were provided by George Wesley's White Sox clubs, first in Granum and later in Leth- bridge. "They were classy, talented hall clubs who gave the fans of this area a brand of ball that was the envy of so many cities throughout Canada and many parts of the U.S. "They were good times for all of us on the spoils beat at that time because George gave us the oppor- tunity to cover the best brand of semi-pro ball avail- able. I'll long remember those teams and Hie likes of Jimmy Lester, Brack Bailey, Lee Murphy, Ray Washburn, Larry Koentopp, Dave Crcighton and so many other talented ball players who donned the veil, White and blue Wesley livery. "To me, George Wesley's ball clubs were n re- flection of the man himself of the way he lived and the way he did things. He always went first- class all the time." bridge PronRhorns a 75-47 de- feat in a Canada West Inter- collegiate Women's Basket- ball game Friday.
