In the bottom left corner of the picture the name "Rob" is also written in red. The first two names could indicate the names of the two men in the picture. |
Organized baseball teams were formed in the villages of Cooksville, Port Credit and Streetsville during the early 1900s; many local newspapers reported the many games that were played on the local agricultural fair grounds. During the 1960s a couple of local minor baseballs associations were formed including The Erindale Lions Little League Baseball Association in 1965 and The Forest Glen Baseball Association in 1968. After the City of Mississauga was formed in 1974 the Mississauga Baseball Association (est. 1975) was created to integrate the various minor baseball associations throughout the City of Mississauga.
