Bob was a very good southpaw hurler, played excellent fastball, and had a fine curve. Bob starred in bantam, midget, and junior ball with Isaac Brock Community Club under Alf Sobkowich before moving to senior ball. In 1963 and ’64 Bob plyed with the Transcona Atomics, and he had a combined pitching record of 17-4. Audette also played first base and was a consistent hitter averaging over .320 in seven years with Transcona. Audette made the league all star team each year both as first base man and as a pitcher, and he was the leading pitcher during the playoffs for each year.
