Previously in the 20’s & 40’s the community had a strong baseball team. An interesting fact is that during the 1974-78 period, they had no home diamond. They played their home games in Manitou. Kaleida was dominant during this era and were Border League Champions four out of five years (1974, 75, 76, 78) placing second the other year. In the 1978 season, this team won seven tournaments in southern Manitoba. In that year, they had someone named the 1st and 2nd league all-star team at nine positions. In this period, the team won 20 tournaments and played 220 games. At one time, the team included 5 Edward’s, 5 Clayton’s, 3-Pearce’s and 2- Seward’s.
