The Royal Canadian Legion Roberson Memorial Branch #17, located just 5.7 kilometres from our hotel in Medicine Hat, Alberta, is presenting a dinner theatre production set during the Golden Age of Canadian baseball, Nov. 14 in the Legion’s Ortano Room.

The Lord of Sceptre is a one-act play about a young man from Medicine Hat and the powerhouse baseball team from the tiny Saskatchewan town that barnstormed Western Canada and thrilled sports fans across the Prairies.
