On July 12, 1966, Chuck Sabbatini of the Lincoln Lions was named Little Coast League Player of the Week. Chuck played a key role for the boys of Lincoln in a close game against Franklin. Coming on in relief with one out, “Sabbo” immediately shut down the Eagles bases-loaded threat. The son of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Sabbatini also added two base hits in the Lions 7-4 victory. This was not the first Player of the Week honor for the Sterling Avenue right hander. Chuck was a frequent star on the sandlots of Alameda. Today he spends his time looking for errant drives off the tee.
