I have looked the Internet over and have found no mention of the Toronto Shipbuilders. I can tell you, from my readings of baseball during that era, that many factories had baseball teams. Many major league ballplayers went to play for factory teams when they were forced to 'work or fight' in 1918 during World War I. So there probably was a team called the Toronto Shipbuilders during that time but I have found no information about it. I would be pleased if someone who reads this could find some information and post it here.
