"For many years a baseball rivalry existed between the Stenen Baseball Team and the Hyas Baseball Team. That rivalry was never as strong as it was in the 1930 season. Hyas had a group of baseball players which were so overwhelmingly strong that no baseball team in the league or area were able to overcome them. Hyas won the NESBL Championship hands down in the 1930 season. Hyas would also enter and win most of the tournaments in the area that year. The players which made up the core nucleus of the Hyas team were:

Anton BelousAllen Yewel coach/manager, Anton Belous pitcher, Eric Quist catcher, Matty Gibney 1st base,  E. Quist 2nd base,  Russell Johnson 3rd base, Steve Yurkiw short stop,  Jim Lisoway left field,  Ted Fiala center field,  Andrew Bellous right field, Alf Hanson batboy.

Following the 1930 season, strong Stenen teams were able to capture the league championship 4 seasons in a row, then in 1935 Canora stole the championship away from the dominant Hyas and Stenen teams.

In 1936 Hyas again dominated baseball in the area and were unbeatable as they again claimed the NESBL Championship.

Other baseball players who were instrumental in Hyas's success were:  Geo Lisoway catcher,  Paul Kalturnyk catcher,  Pete Kukura pitcher,  Pete Yatsura short stop,  Vic Lisoway 3rd base,  Nick Yatsura Center field.

The key to the Hyas Team success was the balance in all areas of the game. They had strong leadership from Allan Yewel. Pitching was next to none in the league along with strong catching from Eric Quist. What held the defense together were two outstanding outfielders in Jim Lisoway and Ted Fiala. Lisoway would catch everything and anything that came into his domain even making the impossible catches running between parked cars. Fiala could pick off runners coming home firing the ball like a bullet from center field. All in all, Hyas had the balance and talent to win many tournaments and championships. It is a wonder why the team did not win many many more championships in the 30's and 40's. The reason may well be the fact that the league folded during the war, from 1938 to 1945, which would undoubtedly have been the "Hyas Glory Years of Champions". We will never know!" (Bob Koroluk)

Hyas building:  Moved from Hyas in 2012.   It has been restored and is on display in Dauphine Historical Village.




I am looking for photos of this building when it was on its original site in Hyas (so I can display "before and after" photos).  I spoke with two long time residence of Hyas who took photos of the building before it was moved,   Unfortunately, both were unable to find the photos that they took.    If anyone else can find photos of this building please contact me at:
