Home Run Class Sask. Baseball Hall of Fame announces 2020 inductees May 01, 2020 Baseball fans across the province craving some positive sporting headlines received a home run announcement Friday, as the Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame announced its 2020 induction class.
The announcement featured 12 individuals, one team and one community who will all be enshrined.
Inducted in the Individuals category will be Fred Curts (Holdfast), Allan Fitzsimmons (Saskatoon), Al Greschuk (Yorkton), George Guillaume (Moose Jaw), Elemer Jerkovits (Regina), Rick Johnston (Maidstone), Kevin Kusch (Lloydminster), Rocky Nickel (Caronport), Neil Urlacher (Okotoks, AB/Macklin).
Posthumously inducted will be the late Father Leonard Albers (Bengough), the late “Goldie” Wiggins (Fillmore), and the late Roy Taylor (Visalia, California/Saskatoon).
In the team category, the Aquadell Flyers of 1947-1972 will be enshrined. The Village Of Gray, Sask. will round out the 2020 class in the community category.
Saskatchewan Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum CEO and President Jane Shury, said the induction process was a bit of a unique situation this year due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Rather than gathering as usual, members of the selection committee instead came together via Zoom conference, to vote in the selection process.
Shury said she is still hopeful restrictions on gathering will be lifted at some point later this summer so the organization can host its banquet celebration and induction ceremony.
“We’re very pleased that we had a good selection of candidates again and we have continued to plan for our 36th annual induction Aug. 15,” she said. “Of course, if we can’t hold it at that time, we will have it later in the fall.
