Sunshine Dairy Softball Team

Softball began to be played in Charlottetown in the 1930s. It became more popular after World War II. More teams and leagues were organized and like many sports, Charlottetown would play Summerside for Provincial titles. They would then go on to compete for Maritime titles.
