Ernie was born in Gilbert Plains and played with the Dauphin Redbirds from 1948-51, the Carman Cardinals of the ManDak League in 1952, and in Welch, West Virginia in the Appalachian League in 1953. Ernie also played in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the Piedmont League in 1954. Boushy was the batting champion in 1953 in the Appalachian League, but could not expect to move up from minor leagues, so he returned home to Swan River in 1955. In the 1960s Boushy was a very prominent curler, and skipped rink to four provincial and two national mixed titles in 1955.
