Gosport (Brighton) Ontario Baseball Team

Media Type
Gosport Men’s Baseball Team
This photo, taken some time after 1965, represents a time when there were seven distinct neighborhoods: Smithfield, Gosport, Cankerville, Hilton, Orland, Codrington, and the Village of Brighton. Each neighborhood wore their colours with pride.

George Thorne sponsored the Gosport men’s baseball team from 1960-1970. George became the manager of the Shell station on the north side of the 401(between Wooler Rd and Hwy 30) when it opened in the late 1950’s until his retirement (1980’s-early 1990’s). For a short time, he also managed the Shell station located on Hwy 30 at the 401.
