Ontario Provincial Champions in the 1960s

Six of the first seven Ontario champions during the 1960s came from District 1, and four of the District 1 winners also reached the Little League World Series. Two of Ontario's World Series qualifiers during the 1960s won region titles after 1965, when the first all-Canada championship was held.

Stoney Creek's 1965 team was the first nationwide Canadian champion, and also produced Canada's best showing at the Little League World Series by finishing as the runner-up to Windsor Locks (Connecticut) following a 3-1 championship game loss. Windsor Central followed in Stoney Creek's footsteps the next year, winning District 1, Ontario, and Canadian championships.

Windsor East won back-to-back Ontario championships after winning the crown in the newly-formed District 5 in 1967 and 1968.

Stoney Creek (1962) and the Toronto Parkdale Lions (1960) defeated Quebec teams to win Eastern Canada titles and earn World Series berths.
