Roy Haverstock was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 1894. He played a variety of sports during his childhood days at the Halifax Academy School, but it was baseball at which he excelled the most.

Haverstock turned pro with the Halifax Socials of the Halifax Professional League. Among the league’s hardest hitters, he was said to have had the potential to break open a ball game every time he stepped up to the plate. After the Halifax Professional League folded, “Haver” went on to play for the 1916 Halifax Crescents semi-professional baseball team.

The Crescents won the league title that season, with “Haver” batting .340 and making big plays in the field and at the plate. In 1917 he enlisted in the Canadian Army. He was back playing with the Crescents in 1919 and again led them to the Provincial Amateur League Title.

In 1920, Haverstock dominated the semi-professional league in both batting and fielding. He played for the Great War Veterans Baseball team in 1921. He led the team by making only one error all season as they went on to win the league title.

In 1923, Haverstock retired from playing baseball to own and operate his own pharmacy. He was also the manager of the Halifax Crescents. Roy Haverstock passed in 1946 at the age of 52 and is an Original Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame Inductee.
