Tony Rossi Was Just a Little Guy

Tony Rossi, who seems to have been the Siena College baseball coach forever, was an outstanding little league player.  I played with Tony at the Northside Little League back in the mid-1950s.  Tony played shortstop.  He was just a little guy, but boy could he play.  He had great range, a strong throwing arm, and he hit with incredible power for a kid his size.  I don’t know where he got all that power from.  He was named the league’s Most Valuable Player as a twelve year-old.  Tony, by the way, was always a fun guy.
