As told by Doug Williams to Julie Kapyrka

            Curve Lake was always good at ball (baseball). Curve Lakers were well known around this area for playing really good ball. It was interesting – little towns around here would come see if they could beat us. Teams came from Ennismore, Keene, Assumption, Lakefield, and Rockcroft; but nobody could beat Curve Lake.

            The backbone of the Curve Lake ball team in those days was the pitcher and the catcher. Between them with their ability to
