Best Answer

The Toronto Maple Leafs were a Baseball team that existed from 1896 to 1967. Their home games were originally played at Hanlan's Point, on the Toronto Islands (where Babe Ruth hit his first professional home run). In 1926 the Leafs moved to the new Maple Leaf Stadium at the foot of Bathurst Street. Maple Leaf Stadium was demolished in 1968.

The Leafs were a powerhouse in the AAA International League, especially during the 1950s, and they won the pennant 12 times. Sparky Anderson and Dick Williams are former Leafs who are in the Hall of Fame.

The franchise still exists. In 1968 it became the Louisville Colonels and in 1973 the Pawtucket Red Sox, where it continues to play today.

A new team, called the Toronto Maple Leafs, began play in the Ontario Intercounty Baseball League in 1969. These Leafs play their home games at Christie Pits.
