Sue Soares Frankel dusted off the old scrapbook that her mother had made for her back in the 1970’s. In it she found the names of some former Lincoln teammates that were missing from All-Time Roster. Thanks to Sue, we’ll now add these Tiny Mite League players to their rightful place in virtual ARPD immortality.

McKinley Park’s Doreen Curillo is the 1,999th former park rat identified by the tireless PlayBall! staff. Congratulations to Doreen who is shown below connecting on a pitch from Longfellow pitcher Connie Garnett. Both teams entered the game undefeated in this August, 1975 battle between the two Tiny Mite League heavyweights. Despite this effort, the Bears (6-1) would not be partying that day as the Tigers (7-0) would prevail 9-6.

However, PlayBall! – Alameda’s Sandlot Blog IS getting ready to pop the cork when ARPD Park Rat #2000 is identified. That should occur sometime this week as many of our dedicated readers continue to contribute names and faces from the golden age of ARPD baseball. Who will it be? Perhaps one of the many missing Estuary Rams? A Pirate? Lions, Tigers, or Bears? Surely there must be another Pamiroyan out there somewhere that we’ve yet to discover.
