This year, thanks to some fast and hard work by some dedicated parents and donors, Guernsey fielded a Junior Legion baseball team, sponsored by American Legion J. J. Webb Unit 95.
The last Legion team from the Guernsey/Sunrise/Hartville area was back in 1963, appropriately named the Tri-City Legion Team. In this year’s home opener at Guernsey last week, these players were honored and threw out the first pitch of the game.
Shown at left are five of the players from that team. They include (L-R): Gregg Martinez, Ron Martinez, Robert Martinez, Pedro Martinez and Anthony Martinez.For the complete article see the 07-09-2013 issue.
