1955 Saskatoon Hub City Ramblers

Teams (1989)

Western Canadian Senior Champions


In 1955, the Ramblers after capturing the Saskatoon title went on to the Northern Playoffs and beat Prince Albert. In the provincial championship, Shirley Coben won two games and relieved the third game, as the Ramblers beat the Regina Govins in a series that went the full five games. 

Saskatoon hosted the Vancouver Kerrys for the right to go to Winnipeg for the Western Championship. Ramblers won both games with scores of 12-3 and 12-0. In Winnipeg, Saskatoon lost the opener, 7-6, then made a spectacular comeback with a 4-0 score in the evening game. The Ramblers went on to win game three with a score of 12-5. They trailed in game four, until the ninth inning when the Ramblers rallied to win the game. This victory earned them the series and the Western Canadian title.
