Herbie McKay and I were swapping Lindy/baseball stories the other day when I remembered I had the above picture of Lindy as one of our Little League coaches from years ago. Chuck Titus was manager of our team but couldn’t make the picture taking session which took place on the ball field where the current St. Michael’s rectory is. (You can see the old rectory in the right portion of the pic.) This picture features 4 sets of brothers and I believe 3 sets of first cousins – yes everyone was related back then!
From right to left top row are Pat Woodburn, Lindy, Rocky Woodburn, Danny Raley, Ralph Woodburn, Ray Raley and Joey Titus. In the middle row right to left are Teddy Yeatman, Ralph Owens, Ronnie Ridgell, my brother Steve Ridgell and yours truly skinny arms and all. Front row are Cricket Dameron, Leo Peacock, Keith Raley, Tommy Titus and Robert Earl Radford. Now that’s a ball team!
