  1. 1. 21st ANNUAL August 25, 2014 | St. Peter’s Field, Cambridge, MA. Presented by Abbot Financial Management and PerkinElmer
  2. 2. Welcome to the 21st annual Oldtime Baseball Game presented by Abbot Financial Management and PerkinElmer. Or as we’ve been calling it around the office, the first annual Pete Frates Reunion Game. With this year’s game being played as a dual fundraiser for the ALS Therapy Development Institute and the Pete Frates #3 Fund, we decided to switch things up a little and ask Pete to invite some of his old pals from Boston College and St. John’s Prep to participate. That’s why, while you’ll still see a lot of current college and high school players on the field, you’ll also see some former players who are important to Pete and, hence, important to us. It was a little over two years ago that Pete, a Beverly native and former Boston College baseball captain, was diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, otherwise known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Later that summer he made a dramatic appearance in the 19th annual Oldtime Baseball Game, starting at first base and then coming out after one pitch. Pete has since emerged as a rock star in the ALS community -- raising awareness, raising money, raising hope. We are honored to have Pete -- and his old pals -- on the field tonight. Pete is also being supported by two former members of the Boston Red Sox who are suiting up tonight. One of them, Framingham native and WEEI talk-show host Lou Merloni, is an old friend of the Oldtime Baseball Game. The other, Mike Timlin, who during his illustrious mound career played on four World Series-winning teams (two with the Toronto Blue Jays, two with the Red Sox), flew to Boston from his Florida home in order to be in uniform tonight. Mike has been a tireless advocate in the fight to conquer ALS, this after losing his own mother to this terrible disease, and we are thrilled to have him toe the rubber at St. Peter’s Field tonight. With Mike slated to be the starting pitcher for the home team, it will mark the first time in Oldtime Baseball Game history that three former major-leaguers are on the field at the same time. Joining Mike and Lou will be Peabody native Matt Antonelli, a former teammate of Pete’s at St. John’s Prep who made it to the big leagues with the San Diego Padres in 2008. Yet another former big-leaguer will be in attendance in 85-year-old Ted Lepcio, who played eight seasons with the Red Sox in the 1950s. He’s back for his third tour as an honorary coach. We’ll also be represented by the family of New York Yankees legend Yogi Berra, one of the greatest catchers in baseball history. With this being the 75th anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s memorable “luckiest man” speech at Yankee Stadium, and with the Yogi Berra Museum & Learning Center in Little Falls, N.J., currently staging an exhibit on Lou Gehrig and his role in the fight against ALS, Yogi himself has sent his granddaughter, Lindsay Berra, to join us tonight. A former softball player at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and now a writer at MLB. com, Lindsay plans to suit up tonight and become the first female participant in the history of the Oldtime Baseball Game. “I’ve spent my entire life around baseball and I’m thrilled to be able to put on a wool uniform like the one my Grampa Yogi wore and participate in the Oldtime Baseball Game,” said Lindsay. “It’s also an honor to be able to help raise both money and awareness for ALS TDI and the Pete Frates #3 Fund. Lou Gehrig was a Yankee legend, and, for me, he was literally the stuff of bedtime stories. Now, 75 years later, there is still no cure for the thousands of people like Pete Frates who currently suffer from ALS. Hopefully, with the help of funds raised at the Oldtime Baseball Game, we’ll see that cure in the near future.” We have yet another honor in store for Pete, as he will be the 2014 recipient of the Greg Montalbano Award, named in honor of the former Northeastern University standout and Red Sox prospect who died in 2009 after a long battle with cancer. The award is presented to a former participant in the Oldtime Baseball Game who best exemplifies Greg’s spirit, competitiveness and good nature, and Pete is a worthy recipient. It is a tradition of ours that the recipient of the Montalbano Award is invited back to play in the game and wear the 1926 St. Louis Cardinals uniform that Greg wore in 1998, the year throwback uniforms were introduced to the Oldtime Baseball Game. This year, we have invited last year’s recipient, Stonehill College grad Junior Medina, to return to the diamond and again wear Greg’s uniform. And it’s only fair: Knocked August 25, 2014 Dear Baseball Enthusiast:
  3. 3. out of last year’s game after being injured in a home plate collision with Bowdoin College catcher Dan Findley, Junior returns tonight for at least another at-bat. And speaking of Dan Findley, a changing of the guard with the Oldtime Baseball Game has taken place in recent years that includes the Duxbury native. Dan is the latest in a growing cast of former Oldtime Baseball Game participants who is returning in a coaching capacity, joining James Greeley, Alex Lee and former Montalbano Award recipient Orazio Azzarello. While Alex is off playing professional baseball in Austria this summer, we do have Dan, James and Orazio on hand as player-coaches. Before the start of tonight’s game, we will take a moment to observe the recent passings of two longtime fixtures on the Cambridge political scene. Walter J. Sullivan served Cambridge for decades as mayor, city councillor and state representative, and Peter Vellucci served as a state representative from 1983 to 1992. Both are members of longtime Cambridge political families and they will be missed in Cambridge and beyond. When the game begins, our brilliant collection of throwback uniforms will again take center stage. The original uniforms were donated in 1998 throughthegenerosityofourfriendRickStoddardandtwocompanieshe has run -- Technical Personnel Services and Injured Workers Pharmacy. This year, we have a new uniform representing the famed early 20th century touring team “House of David” that was donated by longtime Oldtime Baseball Game supporter Abbot Financial Management. Players on the “House of David” were known for their long beards. In that spirit, we’re happy to announce that the first player to wear this new uniform, Babson College pitcher Nick Ahearn, has grown a beard just for the occasion. We’re happy that Nick understands what the Oldtime Baseball Game is all about. We hope you’ll feel the same way by the end of the night. We’re glad you’re here. Enjoy the show. Celebrate baseball. For the Oldtime Baseball Game, Steve Buckley, Jesse Haley, Marlinda Langone, Dave & Sue Leibovitz, Andrew Novelline, Bill Novelline, Ben Weiss

  7. 7. ANDEREGG FAMILY Supporting the Pete Frates #3 Fund & Oldtime Baseball Game #strikeoutALS
  8. 8. Boston College pitcher John Gorman emerged as MVP of the 2013 Oldtime Baseball Game, registering five strikeouts over two shutout innings to lead Anderegg Family to a 6-4 victory over Eastern Bank. Last year’s game also goes into the books as the first edition of the game in which a participant was forced to leave with an injury, as Junior Medina, playing as the 2013 recipient of the Greg Montalbano Award, suffered a hand injury while sliding (safely, he points out) into the plate. Because he had just one at-bat, he is being invited back this year. The 2012 Oldtime Baseball Game included many dramatic moments, beginning with the introduction of former Boston College captain Pete Frates as starting first baseman for the home team, Abbot Financial Management. Frates, who was diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s Disease earlier in the year, wore a replica No. 3 Jimmie Foxx uniform, presented to him during pre-game ceremonies by Sox general manager Ben Cherington. Frates, who played the field for the first pitch of the game, returns to the Oldtime Baseball Game for tonight’s ALS fundraiser. Also in 2012, Skip Flanagan of Framingham and the Rochester Institute of Technology became the first profoundly deaf player to appear in the Oldtime Baseball Game.Wearing the No. 9TedWilliams uniform, he had three hits and was named MostValuable Player. In 2011, Newton’s Sam Shaughnessy hit a home run and emerged as MVP in leading the Bejoian Family Trust to a 9-6 victory over Abbot Financial Management. It was a record ninth appearance in The Game for the 2010 Boston College graduate, who is expected to make a 10th appearance tonight in honor of Pete Frates. Medford’s Orazio Azzarello, recipient of the 2012 Greg Montalbano Award, has made eight appearances. Alfredo Nunez of Haverhill (1997-03) appeared in seven games, and former Red Sox infielder Lou Merloni tonight appears in his seventh game as well. Although the 2010 OTBG was delayed a day because of rain, an enthusiastic crowd packed St. Peter’s Field to see James Greeley of the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts become The Game’s first two-time MVP, pitching three shutout innings and driving in a run. He was also MVP in 2006. The 2008 Game featured a return of one of its original players. Dave Woods, who played in The Game in 1994, flew in from California when offered a chance to play . . . The 2007 Game served as a 40th anniversary party for the 1967 “Impossible Dream” Red Sox, with 12 members of that fabled team coming to St. Peter’s Field to throw out the first pitch . . . Chris Moyer, who pitched a scoreless inning in the 2007 Game while a student at Boston University, made it to the big leagues in a different capacity: The New Hampshire native served as press secretary to United States Sen. Kay Hagan of North Carolina. He is now director of media relations for the American Gaming Association. Jeffrey Maier, who became an overnight celebrity during the 1996 American League Championship Series when he reached out of the stands and deflected a Derek Jeter fly to right field into a home run, played in the 2006 Game. The four-year Wesleyan standout singled in his first at-bat . . . ESPN.com columnist Jim Caple flew from Seattle to Boston to play in ’06 and wear the 1969 Seattle Pilots Tommy Harper uniform . . . In 2005, Cambridge’s Danny Nugent wrote several letters asking to be in The Game, having attended it since he was a small child. Selected to play in ’05, he won it for the Abbot Angels with an RBI double in the bottom of the ninth inning. He was named MVP . . . Josh and Jeremy Papelbon, twin brothers of then-Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon, each pitched a scoreless inning in ’05 . . . Josh Papelbon is one of three veterans of the Lowell Spinners to have played in The Game, the others being the late Greg Montalbano (’97-98) and Zak Farkes (’02-04) . . . One of the most thrilling moments in The Game’s history took place in 2004 when former Red Sox star Oil Can Boyd pitched four innings. Farkes, on his way to being drafted by the Red Sox, hit a home run off The Can . . . Garrett Tingle (’02-03) is the son of Gary Tingle, who played in the inaugural 1994 Game. Players who have worn the No. 9 Ted Williams uniform have enjoyed a measure of success that would have made The Splendid Splinter proud. Steve Langone (’98), Todd Korchin (’00), Damian Costantino (’03), Farkes (’04) and Flanagan (’12) have all emerged as MVP . . . Rick Devanna, who played in The Game from 1999 to 2003, pitched a total of nine scoreless innings, the equivalent of a shutout. He was MVP in ’99 . . . In one of The Game’s great moments, Orazio Azzarello struck out former New York Yankee (and fellow Medford native) Mike Pagliarulo in 1998 after having served up a home run to Pags in ’97. Pags hit two home runs in the ’97 Game, teaming up with Pat Mason and Carlos Pena of Northeastern University for back-to-back-to-back home runs. Mason went on to become the first veteran of the game to coach college baseball at the Division 1 level when he was NOTES FROM THE PRESSBOX
  9. 9. hired to run the Virginia Tech program in 2013. Pena went on to become the first veteran of the game to play in the big leagues when he debuted with the Texas Rangers on Sept. 5, 2001. Harvard University’s Matt Brunnig, who is ambidextrous, pitched one inning right-handed for the home team in ’03, and then changed uniforms and pitched one inning left-handed for the road team . . . Added to the roster just hours before first pitch in 2001, Lexington’s Josh Klimkiewicz, still in high school at the time, emerged as co-MVP. He continued to play in The Game during his years at Harvard. When Dave Martin of Tufts University played in The Game in 2000, he was issued the 1927 Philadelphia A’s road uniform, which features the famous “white elephant” on the front.

Wearing no. 6, that player was Billy Martin. 1940’s New York Cubans It has been argued that Cuban-born Martin Dihigo, who managed the New York Cubans to the Negro League World Series championship in 1947, was the greatest all-around player in Negro League history. He won more than 260 games as a pitcher and consistently hit better than .300.

  17. 17. The first banner was dedicated in 2001 to Brendan Grant, a Belmont native and American International College student who was just 19 when he suffered fatal injuries during a summer game. Though Brendan never played in the Oldtime Baseball Game, he was made a posthumous selection in 2001. Each year, a Belmont High graduate represents Brendan in the Oldtime Baseball Game, with the cast including Matt McEvoy (2001-03), Billy Watkins (2004- 07), Bryan Watkins (2008-10), James Ramsey (2010), Matt Brown (2012), and Mike Richardson (2013). (Ramsey missed the 2011 game because of a summer-league playoff game.) The Brendan Grant Foundation is dedicated to the betterment of parent-child relationships. Visit its web site at brendangrant. org. When Tom Cassell coached in The Game in 2002, he wore the uniform of the 1918 Chicago Cubs. Following Tom’s death, we remembered him in 2003 with the unveiling of our second banner. To further keep Tom’s memory alive, a member of the Cassell Club of the Intercity League wore his Cubs uniform in The Oldtime Baseball Game from 2003 to 2008. Andrew Green of Lexington wore it in 2003, followed by Tim Dunphy of Cambridge (2004-06) and James Likis of Cambridge (2007-08). Catherine Buckley was an annual fixture at The Oldtime Baseball game from its humble beginnings in 1994. Each year, she would park her beach chair behind home plate and wile away the evening holding court with baseball fans young and old. Even when Catherine was waging a battle with cancer, she still attended The Game. In 2003, in the midst of undergoing a summer of radiation treatment at Mount Auburn Hospital, she threw out the first pitch at The Oldtime Baseball Game. Her banner was unveiled at the 2004 Game, which was played in her memory. Most fans who attend The Oldtime Baseball Game marvel at the beauty of St. Peter’s Field, a gem of a ballpark whose very existence seems to conjure up images of baseball as it was played in earlier, simpler times. This is because of the tireless work done by the crew at the Danehy Park Athletic Complex. Shawn Megan was a proud member of that crew, and, as his brother Scot notes, “Shawn and I would always anticipate the day The Game was coming near so our staff could transform St. Peter’s Field into a field of dreams for that special night in August.” Shawn died on April 11, 2005. A banner was unveiled in his memory for the 2005 Game. In 1946, Eddie Pellagrini began his major-league career in uproarious fashion, hitting a home run off Washington Senators pitcher Sid Hudson in his first at bat. He went on to play eight seasons in the major leagues with the Red Sox, St. Louis Browns, Phillies, Reds and Pirates, after which he went on to coach at Boston College for more than 30 years. Eddie was a coach in our game from 2000 to 2002, and during those years told stories that many of our players will never forget. His banner was unveiled before the 2007 Oldtime Baseball Game. ABOUT THE BANNERS
  18. 18. Jim Bejoian was an institution at The Oldtime Baseball game with his bluster and his pride of what this game meant for the community and the charities it helped throughout the years. Even as Jim’s health began to fail over the last few years, he always insisted on being at the game each year, even if it was for just the first few innings. Jim never got to see the 2008 Game, the first one he missed. He will forever be a part of the Oldtime Baseball Game as one of our “Angels in the Outfield,” with a banner unveiled in his memory in 2009. Johnny Pesky - legendary Red Sox player, coach, manager, broadcaster and goodwill ambassador - helped put the Oldtime Baseball Game on the map. Signing on as a coach in 1999, he returned to St. Peter’s Field for many years and was still hitting pre-game infield -- to both teams -- well into his 80s. He died at the age of 93 on August 13, 2012 -- which happened to be the day of the 19th annual Oldtime Baseball Game -- and it was before last year’s game that a banner was erected in his memory. The banner is signed by players, coaches, umpires and fans from last year’s game.

  25. 25. SULLIVAN FAMILY SCHOLARSHIP Each year the Oldtime Baseball Game designates $500 for a scholarship named in memory of two longtime Cambridge natives, Henry Sullivan and Ed Sullivan. The annual scholarship is presented to a graduate of the Cambridge Babe Ruth League who is attending college. For more than 40 years, Henry Sullivan was a familiar presence on the Cambridge sportscape. From his days as goaltender and captain of the undefeated Rindge Tech hockey team in 1937-38 to his many, many years as a supervisor in the Cambridge Recreation Dept., Henry earned a reputation as a man of heart and vision, and he had a splendid sense of humor. Henry Sullivan passed away in 1996. His son, Ed Sullivan, joined the Oldtime Baseball Game in 1997 as official scorekeeper. On a night when players are moved in and out of the lineup from inning to inning – sometimes announced, sometimes unannounced – it was Ed who quietly and diligently brought order to the annual chaos of the Oldtime Baseball Game. Ed Sullivan passed away in 2000. But the Sullivans will forever be a part of the Oldtime Baseball Game.
