Retro RFH Spring Ballgame Antics

The RFH boys of spring baseball season

It may look like it, but, no, it’s not a Jets rumble …  And it’s not a musical, either. It could be the west side of the field. But a west side story? Eh, could be. Only the players on this stage know for sure.

So, a few days back, we revisited a case of retro RFH spring fever hitting a high pitch in the 1970s on the ballfield at the high school — or somewhere around there.

There was what appeared to be a karate chop, a tackle, a hit of sorts and a lot of laughs involved. In that Retro Pic of the (George) Day, faces were a bit masked — well, kinda.

So, today’s Retro Pic of the (George) Day offers a new vantage point of that classic shot. The guys, minus the girl (Katie Day) in the background of the other photo, are all standing and apparently after something or someone. They’ve got mitts — or are they whistling and snapping their fingers ala West Side Story visits the RFH ballfield.

Play ball?? What’s going on? Recognize these guys now that they’re all in full view? And just who are they after or yelling at on the field?

Thanks, once again, to George Day for this RFH classic!
