Title Niagara Falls Sports Wall of Fame - Don MacArthur Athlete Auto Racing era 1900 - 1970
Type  Still Image
Notes  Born Donald Rhodes MacArthur (December 13, 1928 - January 25, 2006) in a little town outside of Sudbury called O’Donell that now no longer exists. Don MacArthur moved to the Niagara area when he was about three years old and lived in Chippawa for the rest of his life. In 1946, Don MacArthur married Carol (Willick) and together they raised their two children, Rick and Sue, and enjoyed the company of five grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. Don, known to many as “Mac”, worked for the Norton Company and the Bridge Commission before starting an apprenticeship with J Course Signs to learn the art of lettering signs. Mac later had his own business, MacArthur Signs, which he operated until 2005. In the 1960's, Mac started pinstriping, custom painting motorcycles, and designing and laying out of paint jobs on custom hot rods. In 1957, Mac and some of his good friends started the Satan’s Car Club. The club was formed to build a dragster for competition and to promote safety at the drag strip and on public roads. They even had an O.P.P. officer, Ewart Edlington, as an advisory member. The dragster, designed and driven by Mac, was built by all the members of the Satan’s Car Club. On their first time out to the drag strip, they broke the Canadian speed record for the quarter mile and over the next five years broke and reset it many more times. In the early 60's, Mac held many records in the U.S. and Canada, and won the Canadian championship twice. In 1961, Mac was invited to the “Dinner of Champions” by the Councils of the City of Niagara Falls, the Township of Stamford, and the Village of Chippawa, to be given official recognition for persons who had achieved outstanding awards in 1960. Mac enjoyed anything mechanical. He not only drove and designed a very competitive and safe dragster, but built many street rods, custom motorcycles, and even an airplane that was flown for 28 years. Forever #1.

(Thumbnail) Niagara Falls Sports Wall of Fame - Don Wesley Johnson Builder Recreational Sports era 1971 - 1990 (image/jpeg)
Title Niagara Falls Sports Wall of Fame - Don Wesley Johnson Builder Recreational Sports era 1971 - 1990
Type  Still Image
Notes  It all began in 1976 on Don Johnson’s 20 acre farm field located along the south side of Beaverdams Road, west of Kalar Road. It is here that Mr. Johnson, with the help of a number of volunteers, built his “Field of Dreams.” In his love for baseball and recognizing a need for a place for men over 40 years of age to play ball, a baseball diamond was constructed. The first pitch was thrown out in 1977. The original league consisted of 4 teams. After a few years there were concerns raised regarding liability insurance and Mr. Johnson met with Bob Sones of the City’s Parks & Recreation Department in 1982 to investigate the cost. Bob Sones suggested the relocation of the diamond to the former Memorial School grounds owned by the City. It was later in 1982 that City crews removed the back stop, bleachers, storage shed from the Johnson property and relocated the diamond to the former school grounds off Spring Street that was named A.C. McCallum Park. The park was developed with two diamonds with the help of financial donations and work of volunteers. Over the years there has been improvements made to the park with perimeter berms, tree planting and installation of boundary fencing, benches and washroom facility. The improvements were carried through donations by Mr. Johnson and Molsons Canada through their Local Heroes Program.
  In 1992, the City renamed the park from A.C. McCallum Park to Don W. Johnson Park to honour the work of Mr. Johnson. The league currently operates during the summer with 8 teams. The rules are unique to the Johnson Over 40 League in that there are 5 outfielders, no score is kept, there are replacement runners that can sub for players on the bases and a soft core ball is used to minimize the long ball. Mr. Johnson currently resides at 5720 Temperance Avenue which abuts and overlooks the park. He keeps a watchful eye on the park. The Johnson Over 40 slo-pitch league continues to be strong to this day. Mr. Johnson was a pioneer by developing the old timers league before they were common. His dedication and hard work in helping the diamonds and providing an opportunity for older ball players to continue to play the game with little cost to the City, makes a true builder and worthy of recognition ; Inducted January 21, 2007

Title Niagara Falls Sports Wall of Fame - Elizabeth Lang Dempsey - Builder Girls Soccer League 1971 - 1990 Era
Collection  Niagara Sports Virtual Sports Wall of Fame
Notes  It was 1972, and boys’ soccer was flourishing in Niagara Falls. During that season, it was discovered that a girl was playing on a boys’ team. This was something unheard of. The girl was allowed to play until the play-offs, but not in the play-offs. This caused quite a disturbance and many parents were annoyed.

This was the spark for a determined Elizabeth (Betty) Dempsey to begin a girls’ soccer league. After contacting some friends and the Recreation Commission, the Niagara Falls Girls Minor Soccer Club was about to begin and grow into a phenomenal league.

Elizabeth Dempsey was once quoted, “I have three sons and no daughters but I just felt there wasn’t enough for girls to do in this City and the women who had tried to organize a soccer league in the past had just not tried hard enough.”

The first season, 200 girls registered and two divisions were formed. One division was for ages 7-10 and the other for 11-14 year olds.

From humble beginnings Niagara Falls Girls Minor Soccer Club has grown significantly with each passing year. The Club now serves more than 1,600 girls and young women, in a sport that encourages excellence and leadership through teamwork.

The City of Niagara Falls is proud to honour Elizabeth Dempsey for her commitment and dedication to sports in Niagara Falls. She will always be remembered as the founder of the Niagara Falls Girls Minor Soccer Club ;

Title Niagara Falls Sports Wall of Fame - Gina Pietrangelo Marotta Athlete 1971-1990 Era
Collection  Niagara Sports Virtual Sports Wall of Fame
Notes  Following a record-breaking Cross Country, Track and Field, and Ice Hockey career at both Loretto High School and Saint Paul High School, Gina took her athletic abilities to new heights after receiving a full scholarship to Princeton University.

In 1984, following an undefeated season, and winning the Women's Ice Hockey Ivy League Championship, Gina was named Ivy League Rookie of the Year. Displaying incredible diversity, Gina was named to the All-Ivy Team for both women's ice hockey and women's soccer in each of her four years at Princeton. It was during this time that Gina met her future husband, David Marotta, goalie and captain of Princeton's men's hockey team.

In 1987, Gina combined an intense competitive spirit, fierce determination, stellar leadership, and unparalleled drive to create a spectacular senior year. She was elected captain of both the women's ice hockey team and the women's soccer team and was awarded the highest honour in North American women's ice hockey: ECAC Player of the Year. Gina's most cherished athletic accomplishment came later in 1987 when she earned the distinction of Outstanding Female Athlete at Princeton.

Equally committed to excellence in academics, Gina graduated from the Princeton School of Engineering with a degree in Civil Engineering. She later received an Honours MBA in Finance from McMaster University.

Gina continues to instill the values of good sportsmanship and commitment to sport in not only her five children, but in many others through her dedicated coaching ;

Collection  Niagara Sports Virtual Sports Wall of Fame
Notes  In 1950, at the age of eight, Jewel Steele began figure skating with the Stamford Skating Club. Years of practise, tests, performances and coaching culminated in 1960 when she became the first female skater in Niagara Falls to pass the Gold Level figure & freestyle skating requirements. Jewel competed and was very successful at many regional and provincial competitions.

Eleven years later, in 1961, Jewel turned professional and performed with the Ice Capades where she enjoyed a ten-year career. She continued working with the Ice Capades for several more years as a Director and Coordinator of shows.

After retiring, Jewel obtained her Master Level Coaching Certificate from the Professional Skating Association of the USA and began her career as a figure skating coach. Jewel continues to coach in Los Angeles, California. Her 30 years of teaching expertise have produced numerous skaters that have competed at Regional, Sectional and National competitions. She has also coached skaters in the Junior Olympics.

Jewel has never forgotten her many wonderful years growing up in Niagara Falls.

Title Niagara Falls Sports Wall of Fame - Louise Pietrangelo Athlete Women's Hockey 1991 - Present Era
Collection  Niagara Sports Virtual Sports Wall of Fame
Notes  Louise Pietrangelo began skating at the age of four and quickly fell in love with the ice. Although she was a precocious member of the Stamford Skating Club, the solitary life of a figure skater did not excite Louise as much as the team-based sport of ice hockey. At the age of five, Louise enrolled in Instructional Hockey and from that point on she showed rapid growth in her skills.

She was chosen at the age of seven to play on an All Star Team and soon after that at the age of nine she captained the boys “AA” Travel Hockey Team that went on to play at the All Ontario Finals of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association. At the age of fifteen, Louise continued to play boy’s house league hockey to keep her skills competitive but also played girl’s hockey whose team won the Niagara District Championship in her first year. In Louise’s next season with the Niagara Rapids Girls Hockey Team, she represented Niagara Falls at the Ontario Winter Games as captain and won a silver medal.

Louise went on to play for the Mississauga Junior Chiefs and during her 1998-1999 season, her team won second place in the league and Louise was awarded Best Defenseman. One of her greatest achievements as the starting defenseman that same year was when she was named to Team Ontario and won the Gold Medal at the Canada Winter Games. She advanced to the senior level and on to win a Bronze medal at the Provincial Championships. Louise went on to accepting a full four year scholarship to Dartmouth University where she was starter on a team that was ranked number one in the nation ;

  In her freshman year, Louise was awarded the team’s Rookie of the Year and that year the team won the Ivy League Championship and the Eastern Collegiate Championship. In the 2001-2002 season, Louise was voted as the team’s Most Valuable Defenseman and earned an All-Ivy Honourable Mention.

In 2002, Louise’s dream came true when she played for Team Canada in Lake Placid where they defeated team USA in the finals. In Louise’s last season at Dartmouth, she was voted Most Valuable Defenseman, earned a spot on the All-Ivy Second Team and ECAC Second All Conference Team. Her team won the Ivy League Championship and placed 4th in the NCAA Frozen Four Tournament. Louise finished her impressive career as Dartmouth’s third all time in points as defenseman ;

 (image/jpeg)
Title Niagara Falls Sports Wall of Fame - Lucille Hilston Builder Senior Co-Ed Slo Pitch 1971 - 1990 Era
Collection  Niagara Sports Virtual Sports Wall of Fame
Notes  Lucille Hilston was involved in the sport of Baseball in Niagara for many years as a founding member, player and coach of Senior Co-ed Slo-Pitch leagues.

Lucille was a member of the founding committee for the Niagara Falls Girls Minor Softball Association, in 1971. She coached a team the first year and was also an active supporter and spectator for her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren throughout the years.

In 1985, at the age of 66, Lucille organized the Co-ed 50 Years and Beyond “Half-Century Grandtimers” Slo-Pitch League. The league was strictly for fun and recreation, inviting Seniors in all levels of skill. As the league grew, it became more competitive.

At the age of 71, Lucille started up the Co-ed 60 Years & Over “Grandtimers Slo-Pitch League. These leagues are believed to be the first in Canada. Lucille emphasized safety for the players by having an orange safebase on first, shorter base paths, softer baseballs, courteous runners and did not allow tagging. These “Grandtimers” won 8 trophies ;

  The League Motto was to “Have Fun, Keep Fit and Socialize. Lucille inspired the grandparents out of their rocking chairs or onto the bleachers and onto the ballfield again. She hoped that by being a player, she would serve as an inspiration for other Seniors to join her league. During the season, the league enjoyed barbecues and banquets. In the Fall and Winter months, they played volleyball, badminton and mild exercises in a school gym.

Lucille received a Certificate of Merit from the Government of Canada in 1988 by the Olympic Torch Committee for outstanding contributions to Niagara Falls by contributing unselfishly to her community.

Lucille and some fellow Grandtimers rode on the City of Niagara Falls Municipal Float in 7 parades. Trophies, plaques, certificates, videos and articles were featured in the Slo-Pitch National Magazine and also featured on a Channel 7 Sports Broadcast. Lucille’s memoirs are documented through extensive newspaper articles and pictures.

Thanks to Lucille, seniors have been having a “Grand” old time playing organized co-ed slo-pitch for over 20 years ;
