One of the finest baseball players on Thunder Bay diamonds from the late 1930's to early 50's, Ollie Sutton consistently led all Thunder Bay hitters. He had successive batting titles in 1941, 1942, 1943 and came back after the war to lead all hitters in 1948 with a .469 average, then repeated in 1952 and 1953. He was a flawless centre fielder and a daring base runner.
