Toronto Maple Leafs (International League)

The Toronto Maple Leafs were a high-level minor league baseball club located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, that played from 1896 to 1967. While the Maple Leafs had working agreements with numerous Major League Baseball clubs after the introduction of farm systems in the 1930s, they achieved great success as an unaffiliated club during the 1950s, when they were the strongest team on the field and in attendance in the AAA International League.

Toronto was without professional baseball from 1968–1976; in 1977 it received an expansion club in the American League, called the Blue Jays; the team still plays today.

Famous quotes containing the word maple:

    Once they came on a maple in a glade,
    Standing alone with smooth arms lifted up,
    And every leaf of foliage she’d worn
    Laid scarlet and pale pink about her feet.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
