Welcome to the home of the Marysburg Royals!

The Marysburg Royals are a proud member of the Saskatoon Senior Baseball League!!! 

2014 is the 96th consecutive season that Marysburg has fielded a Senior Baseball team.  The team officially uses the year 1918 as their inception year, however, there is proof that there was a team in Marysburg as early as 1906.  Legend has it, Herb Bauml named the team the Royals in the late 1940's.

We have been in the SSBL since 2004 after being in the old North Central Baseball League for 40 years.  Feel free to browse our website!

The Royals would like to thank our major sponsors for the 2013 and 2014 year - South 20 Dodge Chrysler and RONA!  Thanks so much for you support!


Posted Apr 22/14 - Royals add a pair of players

The Royals have added two players for the 2014 season.  Brett Yarskie is back and playing once again.  Brett had been in England for a year and is now back and ready to toe the rubber once again for the Royals in 2014.  Cam Blair has also joined the Royals this year.  Cam is from Drake and was a member of the 2011 Humboldt AAA Midget Dodgers who placed fourth at nationals.  This marks the fourth ex Dodger to now suit up for the Royals as Cam joins his old teammates Jordan Gerwing, Dean Jaeb, and Eric Bollefer who have all played for a couple years with the Royals.

Posted Apr 9/14 - Ball Camp Dates Set

The Royals have decided to have their annual skills camp on the weekend of May 3rd and 4th. If any players from the age of Rally Cap all the way to Bantam are wanting to come and spend a day at the ball park learning all the skills of baseball please contact Curtis Strueby at 306-231-6392 or or Paul Strueby at 306-231-4256 or  The camp has been a huge success in the past and the Royals are looking forward to having a another great turnout and camp once again!

Posted Aug 28/13 - Year 95 is in the books!

The 2013 Royals season proved to be another successful one in the storied history of Marysburg Senior baseball. The Royals finished second at the Big Moose Tournament, went 18-6 in league play and won the league pennant, and despite battling some adversity at provincials they played tough just missing out on the playoffs by three defensive runs agianst. It was a fantastic season. The future looks bright for this team as they are already looking ahead to next year. A few thank yous that need to be handed out. First and foremost - thank you to all the wives and the girlfriends for putting up with us all summer. You truly do not realize how much we appreciate all of the support that you give us year after year. We could not do it without you. Thank you to Coach Timmer, Coach Johber and Coach Wayne - it's harder coaching than playing and you guys kept your cool all year long. Thank you to all of our fans for supporting us this year. We had very good crowds in Marysburg all year long and it was amazing to see how many people travelled to Saskatoon for provincials.  We hope we provided you with some good entertainment. Thank you to everyone who supported us and who came to our annual baseball camp in May. It was once again a great success. Thank you to RONA and SOUTH 20 for supporting us financially this year and also to Sask Lotteries for giving us a MAP grant once again. Thank you to all who helped in our concession in Marysburg this year. The concession is a major reason we get as many fans as we do with all of the great food that is served. I am not going to name them all in fear I might forget someone, but you all know who you are. Thank you to Gord Kiefer, Riley Brockman, Lee Connell, Scott Lessmeister, Murray Bauml, Bryan Politeski, and Cathy Bornhorst for umpiring this year. It is a thankless job that often goes overlooked and the games could not be played without you. Thank you to all the players for the time and commitment you gave. It sure is fun going to the park with such a good group of guys. And finally last but certainly not least, thank you to Wayne and Noreen Strueby for everything that you do. This team would not be in existence without these two people. They do ALL of the behind the scenes work that no one notices and is overlooked. We would not be able to field a team without all that you do. Looking forward to 2014!

Posted Aug 28/13 - Royals drop one to the Guns

The Royals took on the Guns last night in their last regular season game of the year...which is also their last game of the year.  Craig McWillie and Eric Bollefer combined to throw a strong game for the Royals giving up only two earned runs in a 6-4 loss.  The Royals once again finished first overall in the league capturing the pennant.  Due to a lack of players because of injuries, hockey, college, and harvest the Royals hae decided they simply cannot take part in playoffs.  With only four, possibly five, players able to play they simply cannot field a team at this time of the year.

Posted Aug 21/13 - Royals lose to Stallions

The Royals travelled to Saskatoon last night with nine players and despite playing hard were downed by the Stallions 10-9.  Craig McWillie threw four innings and Paul Strueby threw three.  The offense was paced by McWillie who had two hits and a sac fly.  Special thanks again to Brett Doepker for coming out and being our 9th guy.  Next action is the last league game a week from now in Saskatoon at 9pm versus the Guns.  Here's hoping we can get more than 9 guys so out, so coach Timmer at least has one option if he has to make a move.

Posted Aug 19/13 - Royals Sweep Outlaws

The Outlaws and Royals did battle in Marysburg yesterday.  The first game saw a great pitchers duel between the Royals Eric Bollefer and the Outlaws Marc Lepage.  Both pitchers through complete games with the Royals coming out on top by a score of 2-1.  The Royals defense played great and the got a some timely hits to score the runs.  The second game saw Brent Puetz make his debut on the mound and after giving up three runs in the top of the first he settled in.  The Royals bats came alive and capitalized on some Outlaw errors winning the game 14-3.  The Royals are now 18-4 in league play and have officially clinched the league pennant!  Next action for the Royals is Tuesday at 9pm against the Stallions!!

Posted Aug 16/13 - Royals go 2-1

The Royals had three games this past week winning two of them and dropping one.  The first game saw the Royals defeat the Diggers by a score of 2-1.  Craig Mcwillie tossed a complete game gem for the Royals and coach Johb got the game winning hit in the tight game.  On Thursday the Royals travelled to Saskatoon for a double dip against the Guns and the Diggers.  The first game saw the Royals win 6-3 behind a strong complete game from Paul Strueby.  The next game saw the Royals lose to the Diggers by a score of 7-4.  Fifth generation Royal Brett Doepker made his debut on the mound for the Royals and pitched a very good 5 and 1/3 before giving way to Eric Bollefer.  Next action for the Royals is this Sunday in Marysburg beginning at NOON instead of the usual 1pm when the Outlaws come out to Marysburg for two games.  The Royals are looking to clinch first with a pair of victories.  Come out and watch the last action of the year in Marysburg.

Posted Aug 12/13 - Schedule Change

The Royals will not be playing this Saturday in Saskatoon anymore.  Instead we will be hosting the Outlaws in Marysburg beginning at noon on Sunday for a double dip.  Come out and watch some ball as these are the last home games of the year!  Also check the schedule for the remaining dates and times of all the games in Saskatoon!

Posted Aug 12/13 - Royals just miss playoff round

The Royals took part in the Senior AA Provincials this past weekend in Saskatoon.  The first game saw the Royals lose to the Stallions by a score of 9-8.  The boys played a strong game making only one error and belting out twelve hits but the Stallions pieced together five runs in their half of the seventh to win it.  The Royals then took on the Diggers Saturday morning.  Colin Bauml threw a very good 6 and a third innings with Eric Bollefer throwing the last two thirds.  The Royals made two errors defensively, however, the story of this game was the bats.  The boys only managed three hits and lost the game by a score of 4-2.  This put the Royals in a must win game against the Regina Capitals.  Pickup Graemes Scott started on the bump for the Royals and threw a strong five and two thirds.  Mathew Strueby then came in and threw the final four innings as the game went into extras.  Three times the Capitals took the lead in the game and three times the Royals came back.  They finally pushed the winning run across in the ninth inning to win 6-5.  This left a three way tie for second in the pool and unfortunately for the Royals they did not make it in as they gave up four more runs then the Capitals.

The final saw the Smoking Guns defeat the Diggers by a score of 7-3.  Congratulations to the Guns on a much deserved provincial title and best of luck at Westerns in Provost.

Also thank you to the Stallions for hosting an excellent event.  Everything was run extremely well!!
