From the 26 Oct 1951 Simcoe Reformer:
"Taken some weeks ago, this picture [above] was held in readiness for the day when it could be use to give Reformer readers a look at the 1951 Bantam "B" Champions of the Ontario Baseball Association.  This confidence was rewarded on Saturday when the Simcoe Three Links claimed the honors by defeating Acton Boys Club 9-5 in the third and deciding game in the final series at Victoria Park in Hamilton."
