Presenters: Joe Territo & Tony Brancato
Early Baseball and Rochester’s Baseball Pioneers is a two-part discussion about the evolution of our national pastime through the 19th century and into the first part of the 20th century and the local men who played. This was a period of rapid change for baseball as it moved from a children’s game to a popular adult club sport. An interesting Rochester location linked to the dawn of baseball will also be revealed.
Joe Territo is a Town of Greece resident and is the President of the Rochester Baseball Historical Society (RBHS). He is also the team photographer for the Rochester Red Wings.
Tony Brancato is a Fairport Resident and a founding member of the RCHS. He serves on the board of directors. Tony plays for the current Rochester Live Oaks vintage baseball club at the Genesee Country Village vintage baseball program.
