Remarks:
It takes more than a bit of searching to find this community baseball diamond located near an old airstrip south of Fort Macleod, but those who were energized by Ennis’s manly silhouette against a backdrop of patriotic fireworks, or moved by Alma’s reaction to her husband’s fury, will want to visit this place as part of their Fort Macleod pilgrimage.
