SOME US WERE PART OF THE GREATEST GENERATION. Thank You Bob Ruby.

Reading on line about Trowbridge brought back some memories. First of all when I stared the Little League down at City Point, the field we built, and You have a picture of us building the concession stand that is still there  You mentioned names of young Trowbridge boys.  Joe Tonelli, Clarence , Bob Leonzo, they were some of my ball players  Much before them were a group of boys and men who watched over us,  Pat Morro, Pete Fox , Huck Finn. we talked sports always.  Myself Bob Ruby, Ray Ferretti Pat Marenna , Vin Marenna Pete Villano, Howard Zoarski , Bob Zoarski Matty Bohan, Jim Bohan, Chuck Bohan, Art Hatje. I could go on,but just to name a few, Pat Marenna was killed in the Battle of the Bulge, Ray Ferretti was killed in Northern France, Matty Bohan was killed in Northern France.  Howard Zoarski became a Superior court Judge, Pete Villan is still a State Rep in Hamden,Bob Zoarski and Art Hatje became Teachers. We were the WW II group who held up the square.  Memories will never be forgotten but we were a strong group.

The empty lot behind Jack's Drug store was our baseball park we also rolled around in cardboard barrels and climbed the blackberry tree. When Hummel's Meat opened, we sometime would play in their parking lot but the fellow would come out, give us a free raw hot dog, and send us off the grounds . It was all great fun growing up on Redfeild St . Those were the days!!!

Great Site! I grew up on the Hill opposite Trowbridge park, where we used to play baseball and horse shoes in summer and ice skate in winter. Sacred Heart School was a two minute walk up the street. I still remember Kenny Damato and Art Tatta from the neighborhood. I'll bet I worked with a few of the names I saw listed in your site like, Kroll, Colletta, on the railroad. Is that you posing at City Point Yacht Club?

Growing up in Truman School's "back yard" on Washington Av made the school a constant in our lives. It was our playground. We always had enough kids to get a baseball game going and if the ball went into the outfield, it was a given "in the park home run" unless we had a great fielder out there. It took us 2 minutes to get home for lunch and 2 minutes to get back to school, and there was always someone to walk with and talk to. Always great memories of our years in the Hill.
