A dream became reality for many because of Femi

The LaVale Lions field along Braddock Road was recently renamed in memory of Ted T. Femi, who was instrumental in forming the Pen-Mar Little League and teams in Ellerslie and LaVale in the 1950s. Pictured is his first team, sponsored by the Ellerslie Volunteer Fire Company. Front row, left to right: Bobby Sheetz, Jack Lowery, Donnie Lowery, Terry Emerick, Ted Femi, Lanny Madden and Rich Lybarger. Second row: assistant coach George Lybarger, Frank Hansrote, bat boy Steve Faulkner, Fred Reith, Bob Johnson, Clark LeMaster, Chuck Bockhouse and head coach Ted Femi. The picture was taken after the Pen-Mar League’s Opening Day Parade in Hyndman in 1950.
