Jimmy Barbieri, Paul Heiner & Wayne Campbell

Jimmy Barbieri – In 1966, Barbieri played in the World Series for the Los Angeles Dodgers and was one of six-straight strikeout victims of Baltimore Orioles pitcher Moe Drabowsky.  These six-straight Ks tied a major league mark.  Barbieri was paid an additional $8,000 for playing in the Series, which was won by Baltimore.

Paul Heiner – Heiner, who presently is a very successful businessman,  was a sound all-around basketball player with great leaping ability, and he played his college freshman ball for the legendary Bobby Knight at West Point.  Heiner then transferred to Plattsburgh. During his high school days, Heiner teamed with Rusty Vitallo and Phil Tama at Linton to give the Blue Devils a very productive threesome the 1963-1964 season.

Wayne Campbell – One of the quickest exits from a basketball game for five personal fouls that I have ever seen or been a part of, was when Mont Pleasant’s Wayne Campbell was given the thumb with a little less than three minutes left in the first half, in an all-out effort to contain Linton’s Pat Riley in 1963.
