The Niagara Stars played in the independent Canadian Baseball League that existed for half of the summer season of 2003 before folding. Located in the city of Welland, Ontario the team featured a variety of international ballplayers from Canada, the Dominican Republic, and the United States; the Stars were managed by former major leaguer Pete LaCock (son of American TV personality Peter Marshall) who led the team to a 15-15 record before league officials pulled the plug on the season at the half-way point. [Dave MacLean[1]] worked as a member of the front office staff, supplying the team with its only working desktop computer. On one occasion Manager Pete LaCock broke Dave's Sony Discman which he had received as a birthday present on his 13th birthday.
