9781483645339: Fast Pitch Fifties: A Retrospective of New Rochelle Softball

Fast-Pitch A lost chapter in the history of America's favorite pastime is finally recovered and retold in brilliant and play-by-play detail in Pete Gallo's book, "Fast-Pitch Fifties" Readers are warmly invited to revisit New Rochelle during the 1950s and discover the Twilight League and windmill baseball at its height as some 20 teams battled for championship titles and local bragging rights. Fast-Pitch recalls a period when local sports was king and a championship series in towns like New Rochelle would draw crowds that were measured in the tens of thousands. Based on interviews and historical accounts, the author brings to life local legends of windmill at its height, such as pitcher Rush Riley who threw a softball at major league speeds and was known for his Olympian endurance, playing up to ten games per week. While many of the names are less familiar, windmill stars who managed national acclaim are also recalled such as Hicksville, Long Island native Roy Stevenson, an early pioneer of windmill pitch who helped inspire a generation of players in the New York metropolitan area. Aimed at sports fans, the book is also the story of an era - one full of memorable characters like 'Popeye' Claps an affable stationery store owner and baseball coach who managed to get Roy Rogers and his troupe to visit New Rochelle for an ad hoc block party for local kids. Then there was Bruce Flowers a professional boxer who helped lead New Rochelle's most-winning windmill team for the decade, the New Rochelle Royals. You will read about Bill Marino, a veteran who lost his arm in World War II, but remarkably managed to recapture personal glory by becoming one of the league's most feared pitchers. The author also finds that windmill's most prominent feature lead to its decline in community sports. It was a game where sheer pitching strength ruled the day, making balancing league play difficult, which helped give rise to its successor, m
