Toronto High Park's 1989 provincial champions also reached the World Series. The newly-renamed league -- which reached the World Series in 1960 under the Parkdale Lions LL name -- shook off a 1-2 start at the Canadian championships to defeat Edmonton's Confederation Park LL 10-2 in the finals.
The Turtle Club reached the Ontario championship game four consecutive years, and finally broke through with a victory in 1984. The next year, Ottawa's Pinecrest Litle League began its own run of four consecutive championship game appearances. After a runner-up finish in 1985, the Patriots became the first Ontario league to win three consecutive titles with title game wins in 1986, 1987, and 1988. Pinecrest, which collected six District 2 titles in the eighties, reached the Canadian championship game in 1986 and 1988.
