Alumni Game brings out the ‘Ole’ Timers’

By Joey May

The Hiawatha American Legion Post 66 sponsored the annual Alumni Game on July 6 at the Paul Rockey Field at Noble Park. This year’s game brought out a couple dozen ‘Ole’ Timers’ — or former Post 66 ball players, along with a couple guests who had played Legion ball elsewhere but currently live in Hiawatha. The oldest “Ole’ Timers” ended up with the win — beating the youngsters in their 30s and 20s by 10-9. Pictured here — alumni Howie Duncan — who played in the early 1980s shows he still has it while batting with Zach Mendez catching.
