To the Editor:
On July 23, the 50/50 Debs – Bayonne’s first women’s softball team – attended a reunion at Gorman’s Field.
Many thanks to Pete Amadeo, along with two current women’s teams, set to play a game that night, for their presentation of gifts which included an engraved softball, a rose and a certificate of declaration stating that the 50/50 Debs were the pioneers who won the league championships in 1953.
Also, thanks to our families and friends who cheered us on. It was great to receive the recognition from the City of Bayonne, and to get the opportunity to meet with our teammates again.
