1970 Centennials Baseball Club

The 1970 Victoria Centennials were the Canadian Senior Men's baseball champions. The team was made up of Bob Lumley (Mgr.), George Fuller, Doug Hill, Dave Morgan, John Yankoski, George Brice, Mike McAvoy, Bob Mabee, Keith Todd (Coach), Stan Gibb, Pete Jolley, Mike Embury, Russ Holmes, Barry Harvey, Gordy Strongman, Terry Whitman, Jerry Lister, Bill Campbell, Larry Webster, Les Brice, Art Worth, Dave McKay, Murray Gage-Cole, and Lorne Bunyan. The highly talented Victoria Centennials came out of local little league and minor baseball to the Athletic Park men's league and dominated Canadian amateur baseball in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The Centennials, what the senior 'A' all-star team called itself, represented B.C. five times at the Canadian championships, making it to the national championship game three times and winning it in 1970. This was the era before there was a national team, so a provincial club champion represented Canada at the world championships. The Centennials' 1970 national title meant they were off to represent Canada at the 1970 world championships in Cartagena, Colombia and the 1971 Pan-American Games in Cali, Colombia.
