Congratulations, Mr. Santarone

Our own Rick Santarone, Evergreen and Walnut physical education teacher, is scheduled to be inducted in the South Jersey Baseball Hall of Fame.

The Hot Stovers Baseball Club of South Jersey will induct six new members into the 2006 South Jersey Baseball Hall of Fame at its 47th annual Awards Dinner scheduled for Saturday, November 25, 2006.

Mr. Santarone, a 1977 graduate of Cherry Hill East High School, had the distinction of being drafted three times by three different major league teams: Seattle Mariners (1977), Detroit Tigers (1978) and NY Yankees (1979). He was an All-State catcher in 1977, All South Jersey player in 1976 & 1977, All Group 4 in 1976, and All-Conference from 1975-1977.

I really find it not in good taste to remove blogs, I thought this was a way for people to air their true feelings anonymously whether they are good or bad you should keep them!!!!!!

Rick, I'm sorry I couldn't be there. I know how much and hard you worked to achieve what you did in sports. Keep going, I am absolutely sure Woodbury and Cherry Hill are all proud of you. So are we.
