From 16 Sept 1946 Simcoe Reformer:
"Softball's grand slam hit, a home run with the bases loaded, proved to be a mighty fatal blow for the Townsend Stars as they went down to a 7-3 defeat at the hands of Stoney Creek in the second game of the O.A.S.A. Intermediate "C" Zone Finals ... Archie Misner of Townsend stole the show with four for four, including a double."
