Well, March has arrived, and baseball season will soon be sliding into its RFH home base. The RFH calendar, in fact shows that the there are two home varsity games on the calendar for March 10.
So, it stands to reason that the Retro Pic of the (George) Day should take a closer look back, from another vantage point, of a 1970s RFH game — the dugout.
Batter’s almost up at RFH as baseball season is set to go into full swing soon. But, looking back at some RFH 1970s games, you have to wonder when or why, exactly, was there ever a season of the ol’ gym suit.
Really. Ponder it. Those things that made girls look like Stay Puff marshmallows, or, worse, a big baby with a onesie that had enough space for a diaper or, well … you get the picture.
Spring is coming and baseball season is starting soon at RFH. In fact, the first varsity games are set for March 10.
So, to honor the start of the season and all hopes for a home run of one, the Retro Pic of the (George) Day takes a look back to the 1970s and with a well known RFH alum getting into the swing of things.
Recognize #22 and remember what his stats were? Hey, batter, batter … who?
Know anyone else in the pic?
And how about those uniforms donning the old RF instead of RFH and the ol’ pin stripes?
Thanks, again, to George Day for another classic RFH photo!

Two days of sunshine and warmth in winter. The little respite was enough to get everyone daydreaming about a favorite jaunt back our RFH days.
This group of RFHers set out on their own adventure to Great Adventure decades ago.
It was just one of those days — when fair weather and good friends cured these antsy souls.
Take a gander at the second part of this photo journal.
Recognize anyone? Your favorite getaway when the weather gave way to spring or summer fever?
Rumson resident Rosalie C. Ramsey passed away peacefully at home on Feb. 18. She was 102.
It’s a given. Dismal weather makes confined teens antsy. And the dismal weather doldrums of late have given way to aspirations of a simple romp in the sunshine — or something less corny and way cooler than that.
There’s been a promise these days of sun after a run of rain and soppy snow. So, when there’s a hint of a peek of sunshine and higher temperatures, all good RFHers have always had the spirit of adventure to venture out … far out.
Back in the late 1970s, this crew got the itch to hit the road and sun and literally get to a Great Adventure. Nothing like springing a bunch of RFHers in a spring fever pitch.
They even romped a bit in the fountain … not that we’d encourage anyone to get carried away or take a leap …
So, with February, not quite spring or summer, busting out all over we pay homage to sunny days and the free spirit that comes with them, not to mention the ridding of foul weather ants in the pants.
The fun had here was pretty pure.
What was your favorite RFH teen adventure? Recognize anyone?
