Ernie Kershaw Turns 100

It's great to see one of the Vancouver-area community newspapers do a feature piece on pitcher Ernie Kershaw who, as the article puts it, is one of the oldest former pro ball players around. He turned 100 this month.

You can read the story of the school-teaching pitcher HERE. He's a remarkable man. The photo is from the article on the North Shore Outlook.

70 years ago, Ernie joined the new Vancouver Capilanos and played in their first three years of existence, then came out of retirement at the end of the 1946 season.
