Little Preston Krol was a big help during the induction ceremonies Nov. 21 for the Leaside Sports Hall of Fame, helping distribute awards, especially for his grandfather, Peter Krol, who accepted for his father, Joe Krol, the star jack of all positions for the 20th century Toronto Argonauts.

Also honoured were Jack Caffery, first home-grown Leasider to play in the NHL, Christine Pellerin, a major contributor to women’s hockey in Canada, and Sidney Soanes, a major figure in Canadian figure skating.

A large crowd filled the William Lea Room at the Leaside Gardens to also induct Ayanna Badali as this year’s Leaside Athlete of the Year.
