The Ontario Baseball Hall of Fame welcomes the Windsor Chiefs Senior Baseball Team (1982 – 1991) in the Team Category to take their rightful place in the hall.
The Windsor Chiefs Senior Baseball Team was founded in 1969 by the late Peter (Jock) Papineau. The Windsor Chiefs began their illustrious history playing in the Essex County Senior Baseball League for ten years, winning six pennants and four league titles. In 1979, the club entered the Inter-County Baseball League for three seasons, capturing the regular season pennants each year.
The team also captured the Ontario Championship and competed at the National Champions in 1979 and 1980. In 1982, the Windsor Chiefs entered the Detroit Federal League until 1989 and then they joined the Pontiac Federal League. They went on to capture nine Ontario Senior Elimination Tournaments, leading to seven Canadian Championships and as well as being silver medalists twice, over a ten year period.
Baseball Ontario has long recognized the legacies of those involved in baseball in Ontario. With the creation of a Baseball Ontario Hall of Fame in 2013, we are able to institutionalize those legacies. The Baseball Ontario Hall of Fame is a virtual facility located on the Baseball Ontario web site at www.baseballontario.com.
