Hi, nice article about minor league baseball. My great uncle Buck (John) Morrison played for New London 1900, Meriden 1901-1902 and Hartford 1902-1903. Just recently found articles of his actual playing days. I was raised in same house in Somerville MA but never saw or found anything from his playing days. Just hope somebody can point me in right direction to find material on my great uncle. Thanks
My husband was very proud to be a part of this incredibly strong community. We lived in Sandy Hook, and called Shady Rest home. He was well known and loved by many during our 30 years living here. Many of you may not have known him personally but knew of him as he drove everywhere, everyday in his 1931 Model A chopped top street rod complete with Oogah horn! Please remember him as he was before these past 4 years that had him in and out of hospitals, nursing homes and hospice care. He was a loving, devoted and proud husband, father, grandfather and friend. He was always willing to help anyone/everyone. I love him, I miss him - my soulmate, my Forever Love and Best Friend.
