Bob Audette was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on July 17, 1940. Audette was an outstanding southpaw hurler who played excellent fastball and threw with an impressive curve. Audette starred in bantam, midget, and junior ball with Isaac Brock Community Club under Alf Sobkowich before moving to senior ball. In 1963 and 1964, Audette played with the Transcona Atomics and he had a combined pitching record of 17-4. Audette also played first base and was a reliable hitter, averaging over .320 in seven years with Transcona. Audette made the league all star team each year both as first baseman and as a pitcher, and he was the leading pitcher during the playoffs for each year he spent with Transcona.
