Members of the Sager family of Morden have been for many years leaders of baseball and fastball in South Central Manitoba. Father Howie was a long time player, coach, and executive best known for chairing for 20 years the Morden Committee that ran the Elks July 1 minor ball tournament. His wife Oddney worked alongside Howie as a coach and administrator in minor baseball. Oldest son Steve had an outstanding career as an all star third baseman and pitcher in Junior and Senior ball. Since 2006, Steve has coached minor, high school, and Senior teams, and won silver medals at Nationals or Westerns. Son Wayne was a talented left-handed pitcher and power hitter in Junior and Senior ball. As a coach he reached the pinnacle of success by winning gold at 1995 Westerns with the Carman Goldeyes Juniors. Daughter Jennifer may have been the most talented ball player in the Sager family. She had limited opportunities to play baseball, so opted for fastball and she excelled. She competed in five Junior Canadian championships. She went to university in Duluth, Minnesota and was named team MVP every year she played. She is now a distinguished coach and clinician.
