I have been involved in baseball for many years, and since retiring from the Police force, now have time to research and enjoy my pasttime of Baseball, and just about anything connected to this great game!
I have been checking the pricing of printing in Bellingham Washington in order to be able to market more in the US. The pricing is reasonable thus ove rthe Easter weekend I will check on storage for the books New Westminster Frasers Baseball Club. I will have some printed in Canad aand some in the US.
Dean Taylor graduated from Claremont McKenna College (Calif.) in 1973 earning a Bachelor's degree in Economics. Dean Taylor then formed the 1974 expansion New Westminster Frasers. Dean graduated from Ohio University in 1975 with a Master's degree in Sports Administration. Deanwas named the 2001 Distinguished Alumnus of the Ohio University Sports Administration Program. Without Taylor'stremendous assistance the work on the Fraser's history would have been very difficult to learn.
Frosty Kennedy had been announced as the New Westminster Coach on February 15, 1974 when the nickname Frasers was annnounced. Frosty had a checkered past having signed with Riverside in 1947 then playing only one game as he left the team. Kennedy then returned in 1948 to Riverside playing 139 games hitting .361.
Frosty Forrest Kennedy was minor league icon. Kennedy is the only minor league player who hit .411 in 1948 and .410 in 1953. Kennedy also hit 60 homer runs in 1956. Thus Kennedy is the only player who hit both over .400 and slugging 60 homers.
