This is the local team that defeated Pembroke of North Renfrew to win the Renfrew County Championship c1959.  Mike Nicholson was only a bat boy at the time of this championship but he obviously was influenced by this team and went on to win the league’s Pitching Award in 1965 when he was only sixteen years old.  If anyone can provide further information about this team or league, please use the “Leave a Reply” form below or get in touch.
