All Clinton County Team - 1931

From the pages of the Plattsburgh Daily Republican on Wednesday, September 23, 1931:


Captain “Red” Senecal of the Ausable Forks baseball club volunteers to pick an All Clinton County Nine.  None of Guy’s players are on his club.  Only one Post player is on the team which is made up of mostly of Rouses Point, Ausable Forks and Lyon Mountain players.

            Here is his choice:
            J. Pessulla, Pitcher, Ausable Forks
            Weatherwax, Catcher, Rouse Point
            Pattno, First Base, Ausable Forks
            English, Second Base, Lyon Mountain
            Bergeron, Shortstop, Rouses Point
            Covalosky, Third Base, Lyon Mountain
            Roark, Center Field, Ausable Forks
            Farrell, Left Field, Lyon Mountain

            Neyrey, Right Field, Post

I had to laugh when I saw this.  It was published in the "Big City" paper and obviously my maternal grandfather, Ernest "Red" Senecal, did NOT chose "their" players.  I always love reading the old papers with their non-apologetic hometown bias!!
