P. D. (Pat) Baker

Pat Baker was born in St. Catharines, ON in 1939. He was a fine hockey player, playing right wing with the 1952 Ontario Bantam A Champion Peterborough Shamrocks and three years with the Hamilton Cubs Junior A team, but it was in Lacrosse that he stood out over a 25-year span.

Baker was a dominant goaltender in Canadian lacrosse who excelled at springing his team-mates loose with accurate long passes. He was a member of Ontario championship clubs at every age level from Peewee to Senior, and of the Canadian Junior, Senior and Professional championship teams.

Between 1959 and 1973, Baker competed in 46 Canadian final games representing Peterborough, Brooklin, Brampton and St. Catharines. He was on the victorious side in 1966, 1969 and 1973, winning the MVP award in the 1973 Mann Cup. Baker won the top OLA Senior Goaltender trophy 10 times, was Peterborough’s 1969 Athlete of the Year and was elected to the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1980. He coached Peterborough Minor and Junior B hockey teams for 15 years.
