From the 8 Nov 1951 Simcoe Reformer:
"The Delhi Tobaccomen gave Norfolk County its second Ontario Baseball Association title on the 1951 season when they swept through the Stouville Red Sox two straight games in the finals. The Tobaccomen ousted Port Rowan for the right to represent Norfolk, then knocked off Straffordville, Watford, Durham and Milton on their way to the finale."
