A Fiehl Fact - This note from Jim in newsletter of 5/17/75:  Ed Peak will be temporarily at the following address; Ontario St. in Philadelphia, PA.   Where in the hell did he park that aircraft carrier?

Bob Braun - One of the earliest series I played in TCBA was away to Ed Peak, aboard an aircraft carrier or some other naval vessel. The results he returned showed consistent 5, 6 and 7 run rallies in the bottom of the ninth against Grade A relievers. There was clearly something fishy on board the USS Roark, and it wasn’t the Officer’s Galley. I did protest a few games (the only ones that I can recall), which were upheld by Jim Lafargue, and soon Ed Peak was “ship-ahoyed” right out of TCBA. I wonder sometimes who those people were that only stayed a short time, and why they weren’t chosen to last. What twists of fate caused our paths to cross at all? And what a great experience the short-timers have missed.

Marty Fiehl - Here’s the diplomatic way that Jim L. announced Mr. Peak’s dismissal, “ Ed Peak has resigned from the AL  after realizing that TCBA standards of accuracy and promptness were too much for him to meet.”  And who took Ed’s place?  None other than Mr. Tedeschi.

Bob Wood - Of all the Buckeyes, two of my favorites were Johnny B. Good Wockenfuss, with his weird power cards, and my all-time favorite, Bob Moose (1-1-1-2-2-2) 8 YZ reliever. That was a fun year with the Mooseman. That was back in the days of rolling dice and the suspense those spinning cubes could create.

No one enjoyed a “66” more than Ronnie Wenzel, with all of his exuberance and enthusiasm.

I’ve had some successful squads, and some real dogs squads, but the most fun season was a year we had a mediocre record. We scored runs by the bunches with Ron Leflore and Garry Templeton. We had absolutely no pitching, but we could score. We couldn’t win, but we wouldn’t be shutout.

Marty Fiehl - Most lopsided score I ever remember seeing was Shiloh beating Tedeschi’s D’oros 25 - 0, with Randy Jones allowing only 1 measly hit.
