Welcome to EverythingCroton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.
We stopped by THE CROTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY today where everyone was working hard on the new exhibit, sorting new material, and more—to take a look at some baseball and basketball photos from the village’s illustrious sports history. The society has an excellent archive, all of it handy at a moment’s notice. Kudos to the volunteers for their ongoing efforts to preserve this part of Croton’s heritage. They do it so well!
All that said, we made a lot of copies, and took lots of photos of photos, for future editions of Croton Memories 2012 here at EverythingCroton—some we will restore and “bring back” from the land of “fade” whenever possible. We're starting with the 1932-1933 Croton baseball team, click on the photo. Pictured in the back row, left to right: Loren Campbell, Sam Parsons, Harold Adams, Frank Gildersleeve, Carl Anderson, Jim Loconto, John Fryer, Carl Sherbloom, Art Frank and in the front row left to right: Harold Eckloff, Carmen Picciano, Art King, Mike Gerardi, Francis LaBake, Bill Porchmouth, Albert Rozell, William Fleming, George Kingsley, Winslow Kimball, Harry Morton.
