Play ball! Well, spring has arrived and RFH Baseball season is set to start soon — on April 9 with a home JV game at Meadow Ridge. Time will tell whether or not vaccines will hit COVID-19 out of the park, but the game is on and the RFH players are set for a home run season.
So, in honor of the start of the season, here’s a reprise look back dto baseball times and familiar faces at RFH in the 1970s.
This Retro Pic of the (George) Day give some focus to one guy in the Class of ’78 from the dugout — Frank Buchanan. Remember Frank? He was known to be a little fresh in elementary school in Fair Haven. He got taunted about that at the 20th reunion. So, we will relent for now.
Funny how things stick in the mind of a second grader.
And a catchy old tune that we used to sing at the sixth grade Stokes trip comes to mind when seeing the glimpse of Bill Dooley in this shot. “Hang down your head, Bill Dooley …” Chorus anyone? What exactly was he playing and hanging his head over? Anyone?
Know anyone else?
Thanks to George Day for this great shot!
