These pictures were taken at Cascaded Park 15th Street and 21st Ave.   We had a real good team. We beat a team called the Freaks.  I hit a few home runs out of the park and across 15th street.
Some said the ball carried well over 350 feet.  This was a big Community Relations Game.   These were some TPD officers kids at this game. Some wanted my autograph.
I'm sure you know most of these players. Darby White, Richard Joy and Col Jim Diamond to name a few.  Mayor Dick Greco and Judge Charles Scruggs participated.

This team won the City of Tampa Recreation Summer League Tournament during the late 70's.

Players: Front row L to R  Bob Sheehan, Ricky Smith, Sam Jones Jr, Randy Bell and Police new Recruit Joseph Jones, Sam's younger brother.

Back row L to R  Police new Recruit Robert Roby, Fred Collins, Rufus Lewis and James Bowers.
