Little League Baseball

With the Little League World Series now being played, I found an old picture of my Little League Team form when i was a kid in Dunellen, NJ. Here is my team, Nagles.

We were actually Nagles Pirates. The team was named after Nagles Construction Company. Even though it's been over 40 years since that picture was taken, I still can identify all but 2 players.

The sad part is that the young man holding the back half of the sign, Jimmy Nagy, died in a car accident before he even graduated high school. His brother Bill is right behind him and their dad is behind Bill.

For those of you interested, I'm the first one on the left in the bottom row.

We got to keep our caps at the end of the year. I still have mine and it fits!!
