A total team effort was displayed by a group of boys that had a special blend of ability and comradery. The Niagara Falls Lions Midget Baseball Team won the right to represent Ontario at the Canadian Championships by winning all five of their games at an Elimination Tournament in Hamilton.
The team was led by the steady pitching of left hander Jerry Cunningham, right hander, Wayne Bendo and the power pitching of John Liefl. The offensive attack was supplied by Lou Vescio, Wayne Bendo, Peter Long, Rick Herkimer and Conrad Marcotte. The defense was backed by the gloves of Jay Triano, Tom Liefl, Mike Long, Doug Heximer, Doug Smith, Sam DiMartino, Rick Priestman, Marty Mancuso, Rob Rylands and Dave Lair.
