Me and Dick Bavetta

Congratulations to Dick Bavetta.  Last night he was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

Dick lived down on 8th street back in the day.

Billy Mudge and him used to run the streets together.

Boy could they sing on that street corner!

    I has the privilege of reffing some of Gerard Conlin’s games at St. Ann’s with Dick in the mid 70s.
    What a career !
    His Hall,of Fame speech was as humorous as the one at the Oldtimers dinner in May

    He has a future as an after dinner speaker–very funny
