The celebration of Kane's sesquicentennial began Sunday, July 27 at 2 p.m. with an old timers baseball game at Patrick Santilli Field in Glenwood Park.
Thirty-nine former Kane Legion, Kane High School, and Kane Indies players shook of the rust and participated in the contest before a large gathering of baseball fans. In addition, there were several distinguished guests in attendance, many who had played for area teams such as the Ludlow Wildcats, the Kane Cardinals, Kane Moose, and the James City ball clubs.
Norm and Jim Thompson were two outstanding ex-players who were recognized. Traveling from Virginia was Larry Frederick who was a well-known Legion player of the past and went on to earn induction into the Pennsylvania Sports Hall of Fame for his accomplishments as head baseball coach at West Perry High School. Ray Maze, a James City standout of the 1940s and 1950s, attended as well.
