The General Brock Hotel sponsored a number of different sports teams in Niagara Falls.
Mr. R.P. Peck, Manager of the General Brock Hotel, sponsored the second Senior Baseball Team in Niagara Falls, allowing many local baseball players to compete. Mr. Peck allowed the Niagara Falls Baseball Association to hold meetings and entertain many big league baseball players at the hotel, while they were guest speakers at the Annual Banquet.
Gif Scott was the Manager of the baseball team in 1939-1940. He sold the equipment to the Niagara Furnishers in 1941, who continued to sponsor the team.
The General Brock Basketball team (all local players) won the Ontario Championship in 1938-1939, under Coach C.H. Vandersluys.
The Sports Wall of Fame Committee and the City of Niagara Falls is pleased to honour the Brock Hotel with this recognition.
