Jimmy (Jim) Mutcheson, already an inductee of the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame in 1999, recently added another provincial sport induction to his long list of accomplishments on April 26th, 2008. James Adrian Mutcheson was born in Portage la Prairie, a natural athlete, particularly in both Baseball and Hockey. He won three SEMHL championships with the Miami Rockets in 1942–1962 along with Provincial A & B titles in 1962 all as a goaltender. He was also named top goalie in the South East Manitoba Hockey League three times. The sport most often linked to Jim’s name is baseball—although hockey was still a great love. He coached minor hockey from 1950–85 and was of great assistance with the building of outdoor rinks for the ‘youngsters’. He also coached minor baseball from 1950–78 in Morden and Steinbach (helping to build Minor Ball Parks at both locations), his teams winning regionals throughout the years. In 1966, he coached Man-Dak to silver medals at the Western Canadians. Jim also served as Chairman of Little Canadian Baseball from 1974–82 and was honoured with both a 60th-anniversary medal and the Meritorious Service Medal. Jim is a man known for his continuous passion to assist teams and build parks and rinks for the ‘youngsters’, so this induction is very well-deserved.
