[Victoria Colonist, March 13, 1946]
Ian “Ace” Lowe, former batting champion of the Victoria Machinery Depot ball nine, is the latest player to sign a professional baseball contract for the Victoria Athletics, local entry in the Western International Baseball League.
Signing of the ace shortstop of the shipbuilders was announced last night by Reg Patterson, recently appointed business manager of the Athletics.
Lowe played two seasons at the Caledonia Avenue ball lot with the shipbuilders, and in addition to winning the batting championship was the leading home-run hitter. His signed contract was received yesterday from Brandon.
Lowe will report to the Victoria Athletics spring training camp at Lewiston, Idaho, on April 1.
