The 1934 Coloured All Star team truly was a talented group of ball players. Having played two years of exhibition games, they decided to join the very competitive Chatham City League and, at the insistence of Archie Stirling, to try for an Ontario Baseball Association championship.

The Coloured All Stars brought Chatham its first OBA title and the team captured the admiration and the hearts of the entire city.  Defeated Sarnia 2 games to 0, Welland 2 games to 1, and Milton 2 games to 1; In the finals against Penetang and Phil Marchildon who later pitched 8 years in the major leagues for the Philadelphia Athletics, split the first 2 games of the final series and with the score tied 2-2 in the 11th inning of the third and deciding game, the umpire, fearing that the favored Penetang team would lose, in a very controversial decision, called off the game because of darkness, even though there was enough light to play a "few more" innings .  The All Stars eventually won the series and the championship 2 games to 1 in the extra fourth game.

Inducted into Chatham Sports Hall of Fame 2000
