The Village Nine

ByLeonard E. Andrews

An outline of the achievements of the Campbellville Baseball Club over the sixteen years between 1952 and 1967. When the team started in the fifties, Campbellville Ontario (Canada) was a small, quiet, remote hamlet and the team was composed of the local boys, many of whom had little baseball experience, but for sixteen years they were to dominate one of the top senior leagues in Ontario. This accomplishment is so unique that it is worth recording for posterity. This is actually a scrapbook comprising the newspaper accounts of most of the games played by the team between 1952 and 1967. It tries to adequately explain how this team achieved such great success and how it captivated the loyalty and love not only of the little village but also of the farming community for miles around.
