  • Do you remember?

    Goooo's list of favorite Pirates brought back memories (smiling here)

    Does anyone remember the six week fan favorite "Dino Restelli". Every Italian in the Burgh was pumped up for that one six week period. Llike a tornado, he came and disappeard quickley over the horizon!!!

    I had heard that he settled in the San Francisco area.

    I sure hope I spelled his name correctly.:noidea

    Yes, you did spell his name correctly.

    In June of 1949, Dino had 5 home runs in his first nine games and seven in his first 18.

    Fred Claire, the former Executive Vice President of the LA Dodgers, added a little more meat to the Restelli biography at this link:

      Here's a Time magazine article about him from the July 4, 1949 issue. At that time, if you were written about in Time, that's a pretty big deal:
