Bruce Rogers

Bruce spent countless hours as a coach and organizer in the minor sports of hockey and fastball.  Significantly, twenty-three of the young men that Bruce coached in minor hockey went on to play at a higher level, either junior, college or in the NHL.  Many men can attest to the positive influence that Bruce had on them as teenagers when Bruce was their coach in either hockey or fastball during the 1970’s and 1980’s.   That is a fine legacy and only one of the reasons he was inducted into the Hall of Fame.

TEAM AWARD

Wetaskiwin Sport Shop Junior Fastball Team

 

The team started practicing in February in the Wetaskiwin Drill Hall.  Batting practice consisted of trying to hit a ball on a string swung from a hockey stick.  The coach poked holes in the tennis balls so coming out of the pitching machine they'd curve or drop - making this team dominate the Men's League completely.  They had it all: good pitching, strong batting and fast base running.
