Memorable Manitobans: Jack Hind (1891-1950)


Born at St. Thomas, Ontario on 23 November 1891, son of Martha and Thomas Hind, he came to Winnipeg in 1907 where he became active in the city’s baseball organizations. He began his baseball career with the Winnitoba Juniors playing intermediate ball for the same club. As a senior ball player, he played in Wesley Park for Transcona, Dominion Express, and the Elks. In the late 1930s, he managed the Capitals and later took over the IOGT juniors. The founder of the Rosedale baseball organization (f. 1945), he was also associated with Stuart’s Travelers and Norwood seniors. In addition to baseball, Hind also enjoyed curling and curled with the Thistle Club.

After working as an inspector with the Manitoba Bridge and Iron Company, he became western representative for the Montreal based firm Charles Warnock and Company around 1934. He remained in this position until the time of his death.

A veteran of the First World War, he served overseas with the Fort Garry Horse and was wounded in France. He and his wife Monica shared two children, Terry Hind and Joyce Hind. He belonged to the Second Church of Christ.

He died suddenly at his Winnipeg home, 1020 Dominion Street, on 4 May 1950. He was buried in Elmwood Cemetery.
