  1. Ed was one of the BEST baseball pitchers to ever come out of Central New York. He was called up by the Giants before he went into the service. No one had a better FASTBALL and a curve that ‘fell off the table’.

  2. Thank you for noting that, Mike. I always loved to hear and read about his baseball days from his friends and our family.


  3. I was sorry to here about Ed, my deepest thoughts are with all the family. He has always been a good friend and someone I always enjoyed being with especially the days at Woodpecker. With the passing of Ted and now Ed, two larger than life men leaves a big hole in my heart. The only comfort is that they are both now hunting, fishing and trapping to there hearts content telling the old story’s forever.

  4. Sorry for your loss. Kind of curious what relation he’d be to me. (Grand-son of Donald Neil Devendorf – born same area then moved to Michigan)
