I have looked the Internet over and have found no mention of the Toronto Shipbuilders. I can tell you, from my readings of baseball during that era, that many factories had baseball teams. Many major league ballplayers went to play for factory teams when they were forced to 'work or fight' in 1918 during World War I. So there probably was a team called the Toronto Shipbuilders during that time but I have found no information about it. I would be pleased if someone who reads this could find some information and post it here.
Near 23 % of baseball players in the colliegate level manage to play ball in the profesional level. The above answer is utterly ridiculous. The actual number of college ballplayers that end up playing in the majors is no where near 23%. It is not even 1%.

No. For a ballplayer to become good enough to play professional baseball he would have to have a love for the game. All the work and dedication it takes to play at a professional level cannot be achieved unless the player truly enjoys playing the game.Being successful has been defined as finding something you love to do, and get paid to do it. Ballplayers were not always paid as good as they are today. Many ballplayers in the past had to work a second job during the off season to make ends-meet. They played for love of the game.Today the salaries to play baseball is beyond great, and could be a great motivator to play ball. It could be perceived that greed outweighs the love for the game, and that they are only playing for the money. -Steven KeyMan
The best thing to do is get to the stadium early, and wait by the players entrance. Lots of players will sign on the way into the ballpark. You will have plenty of completion as well. During batting practice many ballplayers will stop along the foul lines and sign. Be polite, know the ballplayer's name, and be prepared with a ball and a blue ballpoint pen.

Send a self addressed envelope along with a photo or index card to be signed, and you might get lucky. send it to the team address of the ballplayer you want the autograph for.

However there have been many major leaguers of Hispanic ancestry such as Roberto Clemente, Keith Hernandez, Sammy Sosa, etc Most hail from Puerto Rico, or Santo Domingo, or possibly Mexico, with no known Continental (Spaniards).
