Retro RFH Halloween Lounging & Lunching

It’s not every day that you get the chance to grab a bite of good ol’ RFH cafeteria grub — or a little Halloween sustenance, let’s say.

It’s also not every day that you get the chance to “cop a squat” in the RFH senior lounge to ingest the spirit, or spirits, of the day in the company of Harpo and Groucho Marx.

When it comes to RFH cheerleading, the spirit is still the same, but the  look and sound of it all is a lot different from what went on down on the field decades ago.

Outtake: Retro Cheer for a Class of ’78 40th Reunion

“Hey, purple! Hey, white! You look so good to me! Hey, hey, hey, hey …”

Well, the time is drawing nearer for classmates and clowns alike from the RFH Class of ’78 to be reunited at their 40th (ouch) reunion.

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.

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!

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.
