There's a little guess work with trying to pin down the dates of these photos from Irl Flanagan, long time prairie diamond star.
Left - North Battleford hurler Greg Dvorak, who in 1969 had perhaps the best-ever pitching mark for a summer on the prairies, 20-0, including a 12-0 mark during the regular season.
In his three seasons - 1968, 1969 and 1970 the import right-hander from Fresno State University, won 27 regular season games, losing just two.
The first baseman is Mark Perkins and the base umpire is John Repin.
Apparently, Dvorak had difficulty in finding a cap to fit properly, so he ended up wearing a batting helmet for the most part even when on the mound.
Ken Haanen of Saskatoon Commodores drills a first inning triple in a 1970 contest.
Left - Irl Flanigan, the Unity manager receiving a trophy from Eldon Elliott. Elliott was the sportscaster with radio station CJNB in North Battleford. He broadcast many of the games, kept statistics and helped each season by laying out the playing scheduled.
Right - Ray Leier, a Unity executive making a trophy presentation to Flanagan. It's likely the 1970 season when the Cardinals won the Northern Saskatchewan League championship.
Again, Ray Leier making a trophy presentation, this time to Unity catcher Doug Wilkinson.
Wilkinson appears to have begun play with the Cardinals in 1970 hitting just .239.
A year later, he carried a .366 average and was second in the batting race.
