Campbellville Merchants - Team (Baseball) - Class of 2016
They never graced the cover of Sports Illustrated or had televised games, but the Campbellville Merchants baseball clubs were legendary.
The teams were made up almost entirely of local players from the village of approximately 250 people.
During Len Andrews' 16 year run as Manager (1952-67), the Merchants captured an astounding 12 Ontario titles and claimed the Halton County crown 11 times in a row. They amassed an overall record of 411-122-16 during that dynasty.
From 1969-84 the club would go on to win three more Provincial Championships, two County titles and five second place finishes.
In 2014 the Merchants (1952-1967 Era) were the second team to ever be inducted into Baseball Ontario's Hall of Fame.
The Merchants' exploits have been chronicled in "The Village Nine", a collection of newspaper articles and photographs that recounts the team's legacy.
