Branch manager of the Richmond Library, Jerry Franklin, is a big baseball fan. He shares some of his personal collection in a new exhibit that focuses on players who moved to the major leagues after playing in the Negro National League.
The Frankford High School baseball team received their championship rings last week during a ceremony held at the Oxford Ave. school. The Pioneers claimed the Public League title after defeating Thomas Edison High School, 5-4, on June 2 at Richie Ashburn Field in South Philadelphia. The triumph was Frankford’s first Public League championship crown since 2008 and 16th in the program’s history.
