Herbert MacLeod of Springhill, Nova Scotia was only 21 when he played on the 1945 edition of the famed Fencebusters, helping lead the team to their first Maritime title since 1928. He had joined the Fencebusters when he was only 16. MacLeod was etching his mark as one of the Maritimes’ prominent players.

He was an excellent outfielder and a superb line drive hitter. He batted over .400 while playing for Springhill in 1948 and was named the Central League All-Star centre fielder. He left to play in Florida and kept up his all-star numbers. MacLeod returned to the Maritimes where he hit .500 in 1954 playing for the Amherst Blue Jays of the Westmoreland County Baseball League.

By 1965 MacLeod had moved to Trenton and began coaching softball teams. He coached Trenton teams to several Maritime junior crowns. Herbert MacLeod was inducted into the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame in 1989.
