I’ve done an about face on the Western Major Baseball League in Yorkton and Melville.

For years, I downplayed its importance in the community but it was because I was uneducated on it. 

I was looking at the fact I expected better calibre baseball, I didn’t identify with any of the players as precious few are local, the entire roster gets turned over each year, and also looked at the fact I’m not going to stay in the city on weekends just to watch baseball when I could be enjoying the lake and the not-enough summer days that we have each year.
