To the editor: Many great things have been said about Dick Kashner. As many of us know, Dick was an outstanding baseball and softball player.

In the late 60s and 70s, there were many outstanding players and teams that competed in the Shamokin Area league. Crowds of 400-plus fans would come to see a Faust vs. East End, B&E or Shuda Cafe team, to name a few, play each other.
