Ken White - Hall of Fame (Builder)
Ken White was born in Hamilton 76 years ago. In fact he lived a few blocks from here on Sherman Avenue. He later moved to Toronto to work in Television.
In 1974 he got together with John Forest & Paul Coulter to found the Ontario Ball Hockey Association. In 1978 these same men got together again in Montreal & Ottawa along with four Provinces to establish the Canadian Ball Hockey Association.
Ken’s accomplishments in the sport include establishing the floating blue line, making the sport non contact, bringing in the hard ball, requiring all players to wear protective gloves & helmets, allowing goalies to have water on the net, hosting national and international tournaments & helped establish women’s ball hockey.
