Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame seeks information on Kamsack Cyclones

The Kamsack Cyclones baseball team was selected in 2019 to be inducted into the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame in the Team Category in 2020, for the team’s contribution to our rich Saskatchewan baseball heritage. This celebration has now been postponed to 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

We now ask for information from anyone who could provide names of any members of the organization and team members names listed, or the names of their living family members.
