The Athletics had a powerful team with devoted, enthusiastic fans. St. Lazare certainly demonstrated that a small town could support a high quality team. They competed in the Manitoba Senior Baseball League. They won the League pennant in 1964 and lost in the finals in 1964. In 1965 they won the League championship and then the provincial Senior AAA championship. Among the top players were Dave Pearson, Oscar Walker, and Ike Walker, all recruited from Satchel Paige’s touring all stars. Southpaw Bill Cundiff struck out 170 in 1963, still an MSBL record. Others on the team were Manitoba Hall of Fame members Ray Simms, Bob Thompson, Roy Cuthill, Claude Lambert, Paul Chartrand.
