Simcoe (Street School) Tigers Bantam Baseball Team 1939

Simcoe Tigers represented Simcoe Street School in the Niagara Falls Baseball Association and after winning the city title went on to claim the 1939 Ontario Baseball Association bantam championship, the fifth O.B.A. title for Niagara Falls. The players were all under fourteen years of age, the coach, Cline Stephenson, was fifteen, and Don Mann, the manager, was sixteen years of age.

Behind the batting of Bruce Beaupit and strong pitching by Bill Poole, who recorded two no- hitters during the regular season, the Tigers defeated St. Annes to win the N.F.B.A. bantam playoffs. The Tigers next won District honours, crushing Merriton in two straight games by a combined score of 22-1, as Poole allowed just eight hits. The Tigers then held Toronto East Riverdale scoreless in the first game and limited them to two runs in the second, to take the Ontario championship. Poole permitted only six hits, striking out fourteen batters in the first encounter and eighteen, including the last six, in the final contest.
