Hi Larry,

Interesting prose on a couple of the local Union favorite sons, those dastardly Rebs didn't have a chance against these guys!?

Sad that the heroes fell! are they Pittston, PA. Area boys??

Thanks for posting,

Dave,

Played a lot of softball and partied even more in Pittston in my youth. Great Pizza and 3 for a buck Rocks. And no Weed isn't from Pittston, New York if I'm not mistaken and I don't think Hazlett is either.
