  1. This is indeed grievous news. Vinnie was a friend from childhood and as gret a guy who existed among our “gang”.

    He was the best baseball player I ever saw in Oswego yet he is know for his softball fame. He was the pitcher for the legendary “Acme Market” youth league team that lost the state championship at Cooperstown in 1954 by a score of 1-0.
    He was more than a decent basketball player, a superb clarinet player, an outstanding academic student, someone with a multitude of talent and a mountain of humility.

    My most heartfelt condolences to his wife and family.

    Oswego is a lesser place without him.
