The Casale Fundraiser Was A Success @ Professor Thom's


Pictured is Comedian Nick Stevens, as Paul "Fitzy" Fitgerald, as host, involved in Raffles and Silent Auctions. It raised money for Former Red Sox Pitcher, Jerry Casale, who suffered a stroke a little while back. Jerry is a native of Brooklyn:

Back when Pitchers batted in The A L, Jerry hit 3 Homers. One of them was against the Yankees. We heard "Holy Cow" Phil Rizzuto, it on an iPod;

Jerry's wife told me that when she was 12, her mom took her to Ebbets Field. She lived on Bedford Avenue in Midwood, Brooklyn. She tried to walk her Family's Big Dog, but couldn't. A neighbor actually walked the dog. The Neighbor was Gil Hodges;

And Fitzy was his wisecracking self-what next on The Cape? Hooray-Rod Salt Water Taffy?

A Fun Night for a Good Cause;

Later!

"The Neighbor was Gil Hodges"

Gil for the Hall! His exclusion is a travesty, especially when you consider that Gary Carter is so enshrined...

Gary Carter, who tried to throw Willie Randolph under the proverbial bus, is there:

In the book "The Bad Guys Won", Carter is portrayed as a "Me-Rod" Diva;

Gil Hodges did guide the 1969 Mets of Seaver to a World Title and was on that Glorious Dodgers Team of 1955;

WTF did Sportswriters have against him?
