Diamond Club welcomes new Hall of Fame class

The Southern Connecticut Diamond Club will hold its annual Hall of Fame Induction dinner Wednesday, Oct. 6, at Monticello’s Restaurant, 577 S. Broad St., Meriden.

Among this year’s honorees is North Haven’s Charlie Flanagan, Director of CT Seadogs AAU Baseball. The Hall of Fame class is rounded out by Jocelyn Ruotolo Chang of West Haven, former Little League District 4 Administrator; the late Jim Guercia of Haddam, a star athlete in the area; and Bob Mirto of Orange, American Legion coach.

Also, Frank Mohr of East Hampton will receive the Andrew Gassira Memorial Umpire Award, and Ron Rosarbo of New Haven will receive the Tony Mentone Memorial Distinguished Service Award.

The Southern Connecticut Diamond Club aims "to foster and promote the game of baseball." The club got its inspiration from the Greater New Haven Diamond Club, which disbanded in the early 1990s.
