My nephew and co-founder, Bruce Gibson

 



1995 - George Gibson (left), Mike Mateleska (right). 
I'm not an Orioles fan - I got the hat during my visit to Camden Yards.  For that matter, I'm not a Penn State fan either.
I know what you're thinking - what the hell happened?  195 pounds and a lot more mobile back then

 


(Chris Hendricks and George Gibson)
The 2 idiots who changed the team name to Delta House - at a bar, of course.  "We were at this bar once, and..."
Where have you gone Opie Hendricks?

Ball that Bryan Gibson hit for a two run walkoff homerun into the right-field parking lot at the State Hospital to win the 1999 WNCES Championship over Franks Pub.  Tying run was on first with 2 outs.  The softballs were lower compression, but the bats were crap back then.

Bryan played outfield and caught anything that came his way.

 


Can you pick out the 12 Delta House alumni in the picture?

The Phillies invited me to take batting practice...

 



Afterwards, I went straight to the Hall of Fame (Doubleday Field)...True story!
