F. C. (Freddy) Scates

Freddy Scates was born in Peterborough and spent his entire life here, a gentle soul about whom it was often said that he didn’t have an enemy in the world. He always had a friendly smile and humorous attitude.

Almost all of Freddy’s life was involved with sport — as a baseball and softball pitcher of note in his youth, and later as a better than average five-pin bowler. Scates’ involvement in sport was broadly based and he was ultimately acknowledged with Life Memberships in both the City Softball League and the Peterborough Hockey Club. His hockey career saw him act as treasurer with intermediate and senior teams, and later with the Jr. B Petes. The Ontario Hockey Association recognized his outstanding service, honouring him with their prestigious Gold Stick Award.

Freddy served on the executives of various sports bodies and was at one time the announcer for boxing and wrestling matches. Horse racing, too, caught his interest. He was a man who loved sports, and people.
