Caution! Pre-season ahead

Probably more than you’d ever want to know about the 1954 WIL pre-season and meaningless spring training games is on the preceding pages. They concentrate on Vancouver and Victoria that’s the information for 1954 I can access (and I picked Clancy Loranger’s stories because we used to sit in the Nat Bailey press box for several seasons. Clancy is still with us.)

If you’re looking for the most interesting stuff, read the various profiles for each team going into the season. The only one I couldn’t find was one for Lewiston.

Jim Tang of the Colonist also does a nice “all-time Victoria roster” column.
