In SJHL News, 


The Yorkton Terriers have gotten a little younger on the blueline as they dealt 20 year old defenseman Paul Savage to the BCHL's Alberni Valley Bulldogs in exchange for a player development fee.

The Surrey, BC product just wrapped up his 2nd season with the Terriers where he compiled 6 goals, 11 assists for 17 points in 81 career games with the Terriers.


In the Western Major Baseball League,

The Yorkton Cardinals continue to roll as they are now winners of 6 games in a row as they won a couple more on Monday, 15-10 over Medcine Hat and 4-3 over the Swift Current Indians.

The Cards are now just a half game back of the Regina Red Sox for 2nd place in the East Division with a record of 22-15.

The Cards will play a doubleheader tonight (Tues) at Pirie Field against the Melville Millionaires starting around 5:30PM.

The Mils lost yet again last night as the Red Sox came back for a 4-2 victory in 10 innings at Currie Field.

(Bombers Press Release)

The Winnipeg Blue Bombers today announce Gerry James as the third inductee to the Ring of Honour presented by the Insurance Brokers of Manitoba (IBAM) at Investors Group Field.
James joined the Bombers in 1952 at the young age of 17 and was an instrumental part of the club’s glory years. He appeared in six Grey Cups, winning four in 1958, 1959, 1961 and 1962.
“Gerry James was a phenomenal athlete that excelled not only in the Canadian Football League as both a running back and a kicker, but also played five seasons in the National Hockey League while also in the CFL,” said President & CEO, Wade Miller. “That kind of athleticism has remained unsurpassed, and we are thrilled to be able to add Kid Dynamite, as he was known, into the Ring of Honour.”
James was the Canadian Football League’s Most Outstanding Canadian in 1954 and 1957, a West Division All-Star in 1955 and 1957 and was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 1981, the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 1982 and the Winnipeg Football Club Hall of Fame in 1984.
James retired in 1964 as the second leading rusher among Canadian tailbacks with 5,554 yards and 57 touchdowns. His 63 total touchdowns still ranks fourth on the Bombers’ all-time list.
“It’s a great honour in the fact that I’ve been away from the game for so long,” said James. “To be thought of for this new Ring of Honour so early in its inception is just a wonderful feeling, knowing that people feel I made some sort of a small impact on the football club.”
This season’s inductees will be recognized with an unveiling ceremony at each regular season home game. Each following year, one more alumni will be added to the Blue Bombers Ring of Honour.
