The Smiths Falls Beavers[1] were a professional baseball team that played for one season in 1937, in Smiths Falls, Ontario.

The team played as part of the Canadian–American League. Two players from the single-season team made it to the major leagues. Matt Christopher, the well-known author of over a hundred sports books for young adults, made the team out of training camp, but was released early in the season. The story of the team, the players and the community is now available in book form from Lulu.com – Baseball Summer: The Story of the 1937 Smiths Falls Beavers
