Billy Stack: Classic Photo

It's Classic Photo Friday with Billy Stack circa 1948-49. We looked at Stack in a feature for Slam Wrestling a while back at Billy Stack: The Pride of Bowmanville (external link opens in new window). Very interesting guy and good wrestler in and around Oshawa/Bowmanville from the mid 1940's to the mid 1960's.

He also wrestled at MLG and on the Tunney circuit and later became a long time referee at MLG and shows up in some of Roger Baker's photos we feature here.

As a result of the Slam story Billy was recognized and inducted into the Clarington Sports Hall of Fame in 2016.
