The Wright Cup - 1920'sTonight will be the first night that the Wright Cup and the Tip Top Tailors Trophy have been on display at the Peterborough & District Sports Hall of Fame.

These trophies were awarded in the early 1900’s.  Both were awarded to East Peterborough Baseball League:  The Wright Cup (donated to the league by Ed Wright) in the 1920’s and the Tip Top Tailors Trophy in the 1930’s.

Winners of the Wright Cup include:
1921 – Keene Baseball Club

1923 – Cognawaga Athletic Club
1924 – MacKey’s Bread Baseball Team
1925 –  Cognawaga Athletic Club
1926 – Cognawaga Athletic Club

Winners of the Tip Top Tailors Trophy include:

Great care has been taken to return these trophies to their original beauty, and we invite you to stop in to the Hall tonight before, during or after the Lakers game and see a little of Peterborough’s newly discovered sporting history.
