Edward G. (Eddie) Starr

Starr, whether with one ‘r’ or two, is the right name for this excellent athlete. Born in Peterborough in 1917, Eddie’s name is prominent in our sports history in baseball, softball and hockey.

He first played bantam baseball at age 12 in the City League, and was a catcher for Maple Leaf bantams which defeated Toronto in Ontario finals the next year, in 1930. Three years later, he joined the senior club and was one of the youngest ever to play in the COBL. He played 10 seasons and was always among the leading hitters. Twice, his team lost in Ontario finals, once to London, once to Stratford. As a softballer, he was with league-winning teams six years out of eight during the 1940s. In 1956, he assisted Joe Blewett coaching Lakefield to an Ontario Int. A crown.

In hockey, he played for city championship bantam teams in 1931 and 1932, and juvenile titlests in 1933. Then he moved up to the Jr. B Colts to win Central Ontario honours in 1934 and 1935. He played seven seasons of Sr. B, winning Ontario titles in 1940 and 1942.
