On August 28, 1972 the ARPD named Jeff Hartley as Little Coast Player of the Week. The Longfellow star was clutch in the Tigers run to the league championship. In a must-win game against the Krusi Colts, Hartley’s two-run double in the top of the ninth propelled the Striped Cats to a playoff date against the Washington Pirates. In the biggest game of the season Jeff once again came through in the clutch. His seventh inning single knocked in two big runs that propelled Longfellow to the 1972 Little Coast title. Jeff lived at 523 Buena Vista Avenue.
