Billy Fitzgerald

Billy Fitzgerald of St. Catharines, Ontario was one of the greatest players of the field lacrosse era. He played most of his lacrosse back east in St. Catharines and Toronto but in 1911 he was enticed to the Coast by a $5,000 offer from promoter Con Jones to sign with his talent-laden Vancouver Lacrosse Club – who then went on to win the Minto Cup championship that year, in one of the few seasons they managed to out-play the Salmonbellies for the silverware.
