Kelly McMechan just missed the Championship playoffs at the Strathcona Trust Senior Men's Provincials with a 4-3 record. It was interesting the final 4 had 3 teams from the Red pool and only 1 from the Black pool. Kelly was tied for second in the Black pool. In the Provincial Highschool Curling Championships, George Meggison's Waskada team had two victories before being eliminated by the Sisler Spartans.
The Winnipeg Jets added some players for their 2019 playoff run. Kevin Hayes, from the Rangers for Brendan Lemieux, Par Lindholm from Toronto for Nic Petan, Matt Hendricks and Bogdan Kiselevich for draft picks. Both Nashville and Vegas traded for high profile players so it will be a tough route to the finals again. But it is fun to be considered a contender!
Last week’s trivia asked who the highest rated ball player in the majors was. Dan Maxwell was not eligible as he sat out the 2018 season. Mike Trout is ranked number one in most preseason reports. This week asks the name of the former Deloraine Royal being added to the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame this spring?
