Could everyone write one simple essay about something that once happened in Saltaire…that they saw or were a part of…and put it on one big website? Somebody should collect a lot of stories before we all forget. Otherwise it is like a line in “On The Beach” : The history of the war that now would never be written.” -(JO'H)

Will History Repeat Itself in 2008?


AFTER 32 YEARS, WILL THE DOGFISH REGAIN THEIR PAST GLORY IN 2008?





(P.S. These two pictures are from the early 1980's.)

does Judge Latham know who is leading the parade?

Fat chance. The Dogfish can never be what they were in the 1970's and 89's.

DOTI said...

Only if Ogre returns

BEAVER said...

Who remembers the semi-domesticated "live gorilla" that played catcher for the "Z" team -the forerunner of the Dogfish?

HI DOTI.

JOH said...

Jeff: Latham on one side of the banner. Who is on the other side???????

cosmo said...

Looks like Frank Connely on the other side of the banner.

DOTI said...

Ogre is the nickname of Arguably the best saltaire softball player to ever grace Wright Field...Chris Wright

joh said...

Doti: sorri I did not realize chris wright is called ogre.


ask Robin if Chris is the best player ever:


Better than the Weinlandts and Bob Marks and Marine Walk v. the World?? Better than the Connolly Boys?

DOTI said...

I am too young, but i did get to see Danny Weinlandt pitch a little in the City. Easily more impressive then Chris, however hitting balls into the tennis court is huge and Chris has done that.

GENERATION GAP PLUS:

WHEN I WAS TALKING ABOUT THE "WEINLANDTS" AS GREAT BALL PLAYERS, I WAS NOT TALKING ABOUT DANNY (MY VOTE FOR BEST PICTHER AND GOOD FRIEND); I WAS TALKING ABOUT DANNY'S DAD BILL WEINLANDT AND HIS UNCLE ED WEINLANDT. THEY WERE GREAT 1950'S PLAYERS TALL, HANDSOME AN STRONG, THE HEART OF "THE WORLD" IN THE "MARINE WALK WALK V. THE WORLD" CONTESTS.
