ByDoug Phillips

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This is the story of a minor league baseball team in a small town in Eastern Ontario a long time ago. In 1937, the Smiths Falls Beavers competed in the second season of the Class C Canadian-American League. The players included Pete Angelovich, Matt Christopher, Dick Henry, Henry Hoysradt, Art Horsington, Bill Homan, Charlie Harig, George Klivak, Ernie Downer, Walter Lanfranconi, Joe Mooney, Eddie Martin, Joe Mooney, Johnny Orpheus, Andy Palau, Xavier Rescigno, Art Upper and Al Smith. This is also the story of an industrious, progressive town with a large, stable employment base in manufacturing and transportation. If the Depression was not yet a distant memory, the worst period was a few years in the past. In 1937 men were working; the stores on the main street were open for business, hotels and boarding houses were full. It was the year professional baseball came to town. Includes photos and statistics.
