1968 Little Britain Juvenile Baseball Club
Accomplishments of the 1968 Little Britain Juvenile squad have been plentiful and far-reaching. One of the region’s most talented and exceptional baseball teams, the squad won the All-Ontario C Championship, had five Eastern Ontario Baseball Association all-stars, and was comprised of many well-rounded athletes who achieved top results in multiple sports. Setting the team apart was the players’ enormous sense of giving back to the community: over the years, players from the squad coached and managed more than 40 sports teams, and supported athletics throughout the area and across the continent with volunteer work, helped secure funding for facilities, and assisted with the building of facilities so that sport can continue to play integral roles in the lives of young people, just as it did for them.
Team members: Bill Preston, Bob McMillan, Pat O’Reilly, Clare Osborne, Len Woodward, Rick McLeish, Dave McMillan, Brian Jenkins, Jim Herr, John Sloan, Mike O’Reilly, Bill Wanamaker, Gene Hurst, Al Corneil, Val Hall, Lorne Kennedy, Steve McTaggart and coaches Jack Hallett and Gord McMillan.
