The great old time Beiseker baseball pitcher, John Braunberger, is dead. He passed away at the age of 77 in the Chinook Nursing Home in Calgary on Saturday, April 3, 1976. The funeral was held on April 7th, at the Foster Garden Chapel. His sister, Mrs. Minnie Tetz and his niece Alice Stern still reside at Beiseker. Mr. Braunberger arrived in this district in 1908 from Harvey, North Dakota before there was a place called Beiseker. He farmed one mile north of the No. 9 Highway on the Theo Lang place, north of the present Allan Stern farm. Old timers remember he pitched for the Beiseker Baseball team with Sweeney Luft from Calgary from about 1920-1927. There was a baseball diamond south of Allen Stern's house. That land was still virgin prairie and there was, and still is, a slight dip in the terrain. Crowds of people came for miles around every Sunday without fail to watch the baseball games. One Sunday there was a cloudburst and the land was flooded. Only the ones who came by team or saddle-horse got home that night.
