Back on the Field in Cooperstown


When we thought that 2020 could not be more devastating, the end of this horrific year did in fact get surprisingly worse. 

This past Tuesday, we lost one of the most Iconic of all Legends, the inimitable Dickie Vaughan. 

His warm, incredible smile, his Texas Drawl, his zest for Baseball and life in general - will be sorely missed.  

Dickie welcomed me and my sons into the Legends family when we arrived in 2000 and had always been so kind to 

my entire family.  What made me admire him even more was his sportsmanship and intensely competitive spirit. 

Dickie wanted to win, period.  He played like he was in his 30's, not 70's.  To me, he epitomized what our organization 

represents:  Camaraderie and Competition.    

Like all of you, I truly loved that man. We will honor Dickie when we are all together in Cooperstown this coming summer.  

At this time there are no specific plans that we are aware of regarding a memorial, wake, donations, etc.  

Mike Labanowski and Rob Kloska will keep me informed about any specific details and I will pass them on.  

I would also like to take this moment to honor some other Legends of Baseball seniors that we have lost in the past 14 months:  

Dave Gordon, Don Drown, Rich Reimold and Bobby Leech  

Notwithstanding this horrific year, combined with the sadness of losing Dickie, 

The Cogliano family wishes you and your families a very Happy New Year and health and happiness always .

The Birthplace of Baseball

Legends of Baseball Tournaments offer an  opportunity to play on the same field that generations of Hall-Of Famers have played on. Ruth, Williams, Mantle and Maris all stood in the box here and launched home run balls over the neighboring houses. We are " Men of Good Cheer" that come together to play the greatest game ever, in its Birthplace.
