J.M. Brennan Sportsmanship Trophy Winner

The St Paul Baseball Club donated the J.M. Brennan Sportsmanship Trophy in 1941 to the team who showed great sportsmanship during the state tournament. This trophy was a traveling trophy until 1987 when the Hinckley Baseball Association started donating a new trophy to each winner. The trophy was renamed the J.M. and J.D. Brennan Sportsmanship Trophy.
