About Toronto

Toronto is the only Canadian franchise to ever compete in the AAABA. The 1964 Richardson Sports entry was the first to participate in the tournament, but it was not until Howie Birnie's Leaside Talbots in 1965 that the Toronto franchise would record its first win. After their 4-1 over New Jersey at Fitcher Field, lost a Friday double-header to New York and New Orleans. The team then failed to qualify from the Altoona Regional in 1966.

From 1967 to 1969, Toronto failed to win a game in the tournament, but then made an impressive run in 1970. The Nationals--managed by Robert Clark--opened with a 6-0 over Buffalo and a close 7-6 triumph over New York. They then upset Washington 3-2 at Point Stadium before losing a 13-1 rout to Detroit. Washington served revenge on Sunday with a 6-4 victory. The 3-win, 5th place finish was the best performance for the Toronto franchise, but also their last in the AAABA.
