London's 'father of baseball' dies
Peter WIDDRINGTON, whose career spanned sports and business major leagues, was 74.
By Hank DANISZEWSKI, Free Press Business Reporter
Peter WIDDRINGTON combined his passion for business and sports and became a giant in both fields. WIDDRINGTON, the former president and chief executive of John Labatt Ltd. and chairperson of the Toronto Blue Jays during its World Series championships, died Friday night at 74.
The London man was in the middle of his annual ski trip to Aspen, Colorado., a ritual for the past 25 years, when he had a heart attack while getting into a cab and died.
Family and Friends recalled his strength and energy.
"The entire Blue Jays family is saddened by the loss of Peter WIDDRINGTON, who was truly one of the fathers of baseball in Canada," said Blue Jays president Paul GODFREY.
David SCATCHERD, owner of the Oakwood Inn in Grand Bend, and a lifelong friend, called WIDDRINGTON a "doer" with a competitive streak.
"When he took something on, he got it finished," SCATCHERD said yesterday.
WIDDRINGTON's younger brother, Michael, said he had lost his best friend.
"I don't care what his birth certificate said, he acted like he was 45," Michael WIDDRINGTON said.
All agree Toronto-born Peter WIDDRINGTON was a "character" in the best sense of the word, who always stuck out in a crowd.
"He was larger than life. He was one of the most irreverent, outrageous guys you could ever meet," said Janet STEWARD/STEWART/STUART, a family friend and managing partner at Lerners law firm.
Armed with an M.B.A. from Harvard, WIDDRINGTON started his business career as a beer salesperson for Labatt in 1955 and worked his way up to become president and chief executive from 1973 to 1989.
He took over Labatt at a time when the brewing giant was diversifying into food, sports and entertainment businesses.
For an avid sports fan like WIDDRINGTON, Labatt's purchase of the Blue Jays was a dream come true. As chairperson of Labatt's board, WIDDRINGTON set aside $25 million to create the TSN sports network in 1984.
The dream culminated in the Jays' back-to-back World Series wins in 1992 and '93.
When the victory parades wound through downtown Toronto, WIDDRINGTON rode in the lead car.
When Major League Baseball commissioner Fay VINCENT was forced to resign in 1992, WIDDRINGTON was chosen by team owners to take over as interim administrator of the billion-dollar sports league, splitting his time between New York and his London office.
Londoner Don McDOUGALL became president of Labatt Breweries the same day WIDDRINGTON became chief executive of its parent company, John Labatt Ltd.
McDOUGALL said WIDDRINGTON really understood the beer business and expected a lot of himself and his employees.
"He was demanding, but six of the best years of my life were spent working for him.Just" two weeks ago, McDOUGALL and WIDDRINGTON had dinner and reminisced about their days at Labatt.
"We were saying it was great to be in business at a time when it was Okay to have fun doing your work," said McDOUGALL.
Along with his jobs at Labatt and the Blue Jays, WIDDRINGTON served on the boards of many large Canadian companies.
After retiring from Labatt, he continued to take on tough corporate assignments, such as heading up Cuddy International in 1996, when the London company was in upheaval because of an internal family feud.
He also became chairperson of Calgary-based Talisman Energy when it was involved in a controversial oil exploration project in wartorn Sudan.
STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said WIDDRINGTON was known for his wild sense of fashion and outgoing personality. She said he married his teenage sweetheart, Betty Ann, whom he met when they were teens working at a summer camp.
Despite his busy career, STEWARD/STEWART/STUART said WIDDRINGTON was a devoted dad to the couple's daughters, Cindy and Stacy.
SCATCHERD met WIDDRINGTON when they were students at Pickering College, a private school in Newmarket.
He said WIDDRINGTON was an all-round athlete who worked and played with equal fervour.
WIDDRINGTON's death comes only six weeks after the passing of another London corporate legend, former London Life chief executive Earl ORSER.
WIDDRINGTON's death is also a major blow for the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, based in Saint Marys.
Tom VALCKE, the hall's president and chief executive, said WIDDRINGTON recently had become fundraising chairperson and was in New York with him last week to made a pitch to business magnate and former Montreal Expos owner Charles Bronfman.
"Peter had just stepped in and was the white knight we were looking for," said VALCKE.
A funeral service will be held at noon Friday at St. Paul's Cathedral in London.
Peter WIDDRINGTON 1930-2005
Business Career: President and chief executive of John Labatt Ltd. 1973-1989; chief executive, Cuddy International 1996-99 chairperson, Laidlaw Inc., Brick Brewing Co., Talisman Energy and director, Brascan Ltd., BP Canada, Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce, Ellis Don, Stratford Festival
Sports: Chairperson of Toronto Blue Jays; administrator of major league baseball 1993.

Peter WIDDRINGTON, Executive and Chief Executive Officer: 1930-2005
As the head of Labatt, he was a 'father of baseball in Canada' who established the Blue Jays in Toronto and later came close to becoming president of the American League. For a time, he was even commissioner of baseball
By Allison LAWLOR, Special to The Globe and Mail, Friday, February 18, 2005 - Page S7
Peter WIDDRINGTON once mused that he could well be the only beer salesman with an M.B.A. from Harvard. The long-time executive and former chairman of the Toronto Blue Jays took his Ivy League degree to John Labatt Ltd., where he started out in sales and held senior positions along the way before becoming head of the company in 1973. He held that position until 1989.
When talks started more than 30 years ago about bringing major league baseball to Toronto, Mr. WIDDRINGTON was at the front and centre. He helped put together a team that would eventually make it happen. The day came on March 26, 1976, when the American League voted to expand to Toronto, awarding a franchise to a group made up of Labatt, Imperial Trust Ltd. and the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce. Three months later, a franchise fee of $7-million (U.S.) was agreed upon. Early on, the owners decided that the franchise was to be run on sound business principles, where the baseball people were allowed to act freely within certain parameters, but were to report back to the board.
"He was definitely one of the fathers of baseball in Canada," said Paul GODFREY, the president of the Blue Jays. "Without the corporate leadership of Labatt's, there would have been no baseball in Toronto."
Mr. WIDDRINGTON's interest wasn't focused just on the bottom line: He was also a big sports fan. He truly loved the game of baseball and was lucky enough to have been chairman of the Blue Jays during the glory years leading up to, and including, the 1992 and 1993 World Series, when the team beat Atlanta and Philadelphia respectively. He watched as the Blue Jays became the first team to capture back-to-back World Series titles since the 1977-1978 Yankees.
Even last year, long after he had left the team's corporate management, Mr. WIDDRINGTON would still make the two-hour trip to Toronto from his home in London, Ontario, to watch a game with Mr. GODFREY. Or, if he wasn't with the president, then he'd be down in the stands taking in a game. "He was one of the big fans," Mr. GODFREY said.
Born in Toronto, Peter Nigel Tinling WIDDRINGTON was the son of Margery MacDONALD and Gerard WIDDRINGTON. His father, who emigrated from England, was assistant headmaster at Pickering College, a private school in Newmarket, Ontario, midway between downtown Toronto and Barrie. The young Mr. WIDDRINGTON attended Pickering College, where he played football and hockey. After high school, he studied economics at Queen's University and then went on to Harvard Business School. Later, he received an honorary doctorate from the University of Western Ontario.
One of his early successes as president of Labatt was to have the bright idea of producing a Canadian version of Budweiser, with the result that the beer grabbed a 7 per cent market share in the opening weeks of the 1991 summer season -- a stunning figure by industry standards. Two weeks later, Labatt launched "Bud" in Quebec and sold out its entire inventory in a day.
In addition to his role as president and chief executive officer, Mr. WIDDRINGTON served as chairman from 1987 until 1991, when Interbrew of Belgium took over the beer company and the Blue Jays. During his time at Labatt, he also played a key part in the creation of TSN, Canada's first all-sports network.
In 1993, Mr. WIDDRINGTON temporarily occupied the office of commissioner of major-league baseball after Fay VINCENT was forced out by the owners, and deputy Steven GREENBERG left of his own accord.
"There was no senior person in baseball in the commissioner's office and, at the time, there were 170 people working there, so I was there on somewhat of a part-time basis for an average of two to three days a week from January through until December," Mr. WIDDRINGTON said.
Then, for a few years in the mid-1990s, he was also the chairman of Major League Properties until interim baseball commissioner Bud Selig decided Mr. WIDDRINGTON should go because he was no longer affiliated with baseball.
"I miss baseball, and I miss the Jays, but I had to recognize that when Interbrew bought Labatt's, they were going to make some changes, as they are entitled to do," Mr. WIDDRINGTON later told a reporter. "I personally was disappointed but, structurally and objectively, I understood."
Mr. WIDDRINGTON's power-packed résumé shows he was also chairman of Laidlaw Inc., a director of Brick Brewing Company, Radiology Corporation of America Inc., Gatekeeper Business Solutions Inc., and Pickering College. In a 1994 interview with The Globe and Mail, he admitted that he wasn't the type to retire and head south to golf every day or lie on a beach.
"Really, I'm a professional manager, I guess you could say," is the way Mr. WIDDRINGTON described himself at the time.
How did he find the time for everything at an age when he could have easily been slowing down his life? "I do the best I can in juggling time and responsibilities," he said in 1994. "It depends on my other schedules. I can't drop everything and devote all my time to baseball. Am I retired? I suppose I'm retired from Labatt's, but certainly I'm not retired in the sense of playing golf or going down south, but I don't have a 9-to-5 job."
That same year, he was in the running to become president of the American League. While he never seriously saw himself as a contender for the commissioner's job, the American League job had its attractions. After all, his beloved Jays were an American League club.
"I was approached [to apply] in both cases," he told The Globe and Mail. "I've been interviewed twice for the American League post. I would be interested in the job. I think they'll be making up their minds fairly shortly. I think I would enjoy it very much, but I'm just taking it a day at a time."
In the end, it came to nothing and instead, he found himself involved in operating a series of companies.
In 1997, he landed in the middle of a bitter corporate conflict of the kind long remembered by the business community. A succession feud erupted within the family that owned Cuddy International Corp., then Canada's largest poultry processor with about $500-million in annual sales, a staff of 3,000 people worldwide and a juicy contract to supply McDonald's with McNuggets. The London, Ontario, company had been rife with plots and counterplots that pitted the founder against one or more of his five sons, and between 1992 and 1996 had gone through several chief executive officers. At the time, Peter WIDDRINGTON was the fifth or sixth Chief Executive Officer.
Not surprisingly, the situation was not to anyone's liking and Mr. WIDDRINGTON made his exit. Most recently, he was chairman of Brick Brewing of Waterloo, Ontario
Until the end, Mr. WIDDRINGTON had one foot in the business world and one foot in the sports world. Earlier this month, he had joined Tom VALCKE, president of the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, in New York, where they met with Charles Bronfman to ask him to sponsor the hall's expansion and planned academy in St. Marys, Ontario Mr. WIDDRINGTON was chair of the hall's fundraising campaign, which is currently aiming to raise $5.3-million. Mr. VALCKE was more than impressed with Mr. WIDDRINGTON's skill in the boardroom on February 2. "Based on that meeting, we will be having another meeting with [Mr.] Bronfman."
Afterward, Mr. WIDDRINGTON remarked that it was one of the best presentations he had ever been a part of. Despite the high note, he didn't have time to celebrate or even to join his colleagues for dinner. He bid them farewell and immediately headed back to the airport. Just over a week later, after an exhilarating day of skiing in Aspen, Colorado., he suffered a heart attack.
"He was living life in the fast lane," Mr. Valcke said.
Peter WIDDRINGTON was born in Toronto on June 2, 1930. He died in Aspen, Colorado., on February 11, 2005. He was 74. He is survived by his wife, Betty Ann, daughters Cindy and Stacy, brother Michael and three grandchildren. A funeral service is set for today at St. Paul's Cathedral in London.

Oakville man dies in marathon
Two other runners have died in Toronto race in the last four years
witnesses: say it took too long to get collapsed man to hospital
By Donovan VINCENT, Staff Reporter
For the second year in a row, a runner has died in the Toronto Marathon.
The unidentified 36-year-old Oakville man was running in the half-marathon yesterday morning with thousands of others and collapsed moments after crossing the finish line on Queen's Park Circle, just south of Hoskin Ave.
Three people have died in the event in the last four years.
Medical personnel working with the race rushed to his aid, first trying cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, then a defibrillator. As an ambulance tried to get through the crowd, he was placed on a stretcher while health workers continued trying cardio-pulmonary resuscitation and administering oxygen. He was carried on a stretcher to Wellesley St. and then to Mount Sinai Hospital with no vital signs, Toronto Emergency Medical Services said.
A number of witnesses: said it took too long for the man to be put in an ambulance and taken to hospital.
"It did take a long time," said Janet DOGON of Thornhill. She was at the finish line because her daughter and a friend ran the half-marathon
Race director Jay GLASSMAN said some members of the medical team in place for the race -- 30 registered nurses and about seven doctors -- attended to the man and there was an ambulance on site.
GLASSMAN said he can't comment on the time it took to get the man to hospital because he doesn't have all the details.
Last year 42-year-old Scott LABRON of Guelph, a married father of four, died minutes before crossing the finish line. He was also running in the half-marathon. It's suspected he suffered a heart attack, but no cause of death was revealed after test results.
In 2001, 50-year-old Aurora businessman Bob HARTWELL, who had run the Boston Marathon several times, died of a heart attack running in the full marathon.
"Things like this happen, unfortunately. It's statistically rare when it happens," GLASSMAN said, adding big marathons like those in Boston and New York have had fatalities.
"I went to watch the New York Marathon years ago and two people died," he said.
Before the race, organizers were expecting about 2,500 for the 42.195-kilometre marathon, about 5,000 in the half-marathon, up to 1,500 for the 5-kilometre and around 1,200 for the relay. The marathon and half-marathon begin at Mel Lastman Square in North York.
GLASSMAN said the deaths are "no reflection" on the Toronto Marathon course. "There are marathons at high altitudes, low altitudes, in good weather in bad weather," he said. "We had good conditions. It was windy, which was a hindrance, but that's about it."
Runners must sign a waiver before taking part.
But with thousands of runners in the race "it's not feasible to have them all go to a cardiologist or get a physical before the race," GLASSMAN said.
The Toronto Waterfront Marathon, which staged its fourth annual race last month, has had no fatalities.
David CHERUIYOT of Kenya finished first in the main event for the men with an official time of 2: 17:12.2. Rito Regules JARDON of Toluca, Mexico, was second and Danny KASSAP of Toronto third.
A Canadian came first in the women's marathon. Lioudmila KORTCHAGUINA of Thornhill captured the women's title with a time of 2: 37:17.7, ahead of Kathryn MacNAMARA of Dundas and Isabelle LEDROIT of Montreal.
First place in the men's and women's marathon came with a cheque for $15,000.
