1956 Chatham Branch 431 Legion Bantam Baseball All-Stars In 1956 travel baseball teams did not exist and this bantam team was made up of players from the bantam house league. These players, identified as all-stars, practiced under coach Joe Bechard for 2 hours each day during the summer. Playing only exhibition games up to the Ontario playdowns, the team had an outstanding year, winning 24 games while losing only 2. Included in the wins was an impressive victory in the second annual International Tournament hosted by Chatham and including 3 teams from Michigan, one of which featured future Detroit Tiger, Bill Freehan. The bantams beat Sarnia in 2 straight games to win the Western Counties championship to qualify for the OBA Bantam "A" playdowns which was the highest classification at that time. They defeated Owen Sound in 2 straight by scores of 13-5 and 25-2 to advance to the semi-finals. Against Hamilton, they lost the first game 6-0 in the best of 3 series. Playing 2 games in Chatham the next day, Chatham won 4-2 and 6-0 behind Dennis Roebuck who pitched both games, the second of which was a no-hitter. In the final series, Larry Myers struck out 14 Belleville batters and pitched the bantams to a 4-1 victory. The second game was a 4-3 victory behind Dennis Roebuck's pitching and the bantams became the first Chatham team to win an OBA Championship at home.
