In 1967, the Ely Fagan American Legion baseball team from Henrietta won the New York State Championship. The game was one of the most exiting games ever played at Doubleday field in Cooperstown. Ely Fagan defeated Staten Island 1-0 in 13 innings. It marks the only time in 92 years of American Legion baseball that a team from Monroe County won the state championship. That team had 7 players that were RHAA alumni; Joe Haefner, Andy Haefner, Rich Petersen, Al Pannoni, Ralph Clapp, Rene Piccarreto and Gary Junge.
Ely Fagan is on the ballot for the 2017 Frontier Walk of Fame as a “Team of the Ages”. We are asking for your vote to help get this team selected. The direct link is:
