Brian Condon

Integrity, dedication, unselfishness — all trade marks of Brian Condon who is recognized as one of the best fastball pitchers in Ontario and perhaps the best homegrown ever in Peterborough. His peers cite him as a shining example, an unselfish leader, organizer and diligent worker at every level from tots to adults.

He was the Most Valuable Player in Douro fastball competition, then advanced to the Peterborough Men’s City League and tossed a no-hitter his first season, the first of many over brilliant and celebrated tenure on the pitching mound.

The 80s were his glamour years; he earned MVP honours three times; pitched Douro to the Ontario rural championship in 1982; and earned the Bill Livingstone Memorial and Hobie’s Three-Star trophies. He pitched the full 28 innings in the longest game ever played at East City Bowl. He led O’Malley’s in 1983 to the city title and also played with the Cold Springs Cats in the Ontario Fastball League. In 1984 he threw a one-hitter for Oshawa at the Canadian Championships. His ICG Propane teams were City League champs in 1989, 1990 and 1991. He won the Dave Leether Memorial Award as Mr. Softball in 2000. After a brief retirement, Brian came back as a player-coach of the Douro club to win the City League title in 2004.

He was a skilled fielder at the shortstop position and a feared hitter at the plate. This same work ethic was maintained in hockey where he also played with above average ability. Brian was often described as “a cut above in his game.”
