I first remember Bob from his days in South Pas Little League. I had never before seen anyone

pitch a baseball so fast. I called him "Bullit Bob Blakely". Bob and I had a nice visit at our

45 year class reunion in 2005. Bob told me his grandson had become a pitcher, too, and

threw the ball as Bob had done. In Junior High, I had gone over to Bob's home on Floral

Park Terrace and played catch. He could really fire a baseball.  Bob's dad, as I recall,

was a Captain in the South Pas Police Dept. A really nice guy, Bob Blakely. Steve Ledder
