Sully "Heels" Gelet - Norristown Softball League President
2004 Montgomery County Coaches Hall of Fame Honor Roll Inductee

2011 ASA of Pennsylvania Softball Hall of Fame Inductee


Special Announcement
Norristown Softball would like to Congratulate Tom Schadt for his 2013 induction into the
ASA of Pennsylvania Softball Hall of Fame

Tom Schadt has been a player/manager/sponsor/administrator for going back to 1969. He has been mostly associated with his Spring-Ford AA Softball team in the Linfield League. More specifically, the Spring-Ford AA Masters and Seniors Program. Tom has had 84 senior teams play ASA advanced play for over 14 years and over 950 games being played by these teams. In addition to this, he has had 22 teams enter the ASA Allied member, International Softball Federation (ISF) Senior World Cup Championships. 18 teams have entered the International Senior Softball Association (ISSA) World Championships and 12 more enter the ISSA Winter World Championships. His Spring-Ford AA teams have won 3 ASA National Championships and an amazing 24 ASA of PA State Championships. He is a wonderful man and his dedication to the pursuit of making softball possible for so many guys that are in their 50's, 60's, 70s and even 80's is so remarkable and inspiring to these guys. His favorite saying is “You don’t stop playing softball because you grow old; you grow old because you stop playing softball!”  Below is a photo of Tom with his lovely wife Faye.


IN MEMORIAM

Jordy Hinkle was a close friend of mine and whoever played football or softball with him. His son JJ plays for Gibbons Legal and is the nicest kid in this league, always with a big smile. Jordy's Father (Jack Hinkle) played in the NFL for the Eagles from 1940-46, finishing 2nd in the NFL in rushing in 1943. Jordy was an incredible athlete in his own right. He was an all-catholic, all-area, all-city, all-state Quarterback for the old Bishop Kenrick High School back in early 1970s. He played softball in this league for a long time, mostly with TNT Sports Club. He sadly passed away at the all too young age of 56 due to injuries from a fall in late October, 2012. I had the honor of playing softball with him and being his friend of more then 30 years. #12 will be missed by all who knew him, RIP Jordy Hinkle. His Obit is below the  photos.

   

Times Herald Obituary - Jordy Hinkle, 56, of Norristown passed away on October 29, 2012 in the company of loved ones. Jordy was born December 16, 1955 and raised by parents Jack and Joane Hinkle in West Norriton. He attended Visitation BVM and Bishop Kenrick High School where he starred as quarterback of the football team. Jordy was the owner and operator of Fairview Mowing and Landscaping and continued to work as a consultant after retiring due to physical injury. His passion for sports and love of football inspired him to donate countless hours of his time to coaching local football and baseball teams, including a stint at Germantown Academy in which he helped coach the football team to two league championships while his son attended the school. Jordy is survived by his son J.J. Hinkle and daughter Jaime Hinkle as well as the family dog, Baxter. Memorial services will be held at Visitation BVM church on Saturday November 3, 2012 at 12noon. Guests are also invited to pay their respects starting at 11:00am. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Norristown Men's Slow Pitch League, 1436 Locust Street, Norristown, PA 19401.

=============================================

Vince Romano, Sr. was also a good friend. He used to keep score and help Heels out with a lot of stuff down at Weirman for years before the new field was built. he was always there with snack and other things for the players if they needed it. Used to love watching the games and knew just about everyone that played. His Sons Vinny and Raymond played in this league years ago, his daughter Joanne also played in the Women's League. They were a very close-knit family. Vinny, Sr. sadly passed away at the age of 85 of natural causes in late October 2012. Anybody that got to know Mr. Romano loved him. he was a good man. I spent many a night sitting and talking with him.: His Obit is below his photo.

Times Herald Obituary - Vincent C. Romano Sr. passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on October 24, 2012 at age 85. He was the loving father of Colette Wagner (Dan), Joann Quinn (Paul), Raymond Romano and Vincent Romano Jr. (Patty). He was the cherished grandfather of Ryan, Marc and Andrew Wagner, Jeffrey, Jeremy, Kimberly, Michael and Troy Quinn, Austin and Damian Romano and Theresa Romano. He was the great grandfather of Stella and Jameson. His sisters, Rita Ruths and Mary Dellangelo survive him. He served our Country as a Marine during WWII in the Pacific Theater.

 

I also want to express my sincere condolences to the family of Charles "Chip" Pritchett who passed away during the fall. He played many , many year sin this league, was probably the fastest player in this league at one time and was without doubt, one of the nicest and funniest guys in this league.  He was just 57 year sold. RIP Chip, May your family find the strength to carry on.

A month ago, Jen Romano lost her battle with Ovarian Cancer. She was so beautiful and so young, with 3 little kids. She was married to Mike Romano, who has played in this league since he left Perky League Baseball. Mike is one of the better all around players in this league, put everything on hold to be at her side and care for her and their children. Watching him, the way he acted with class and dignity and with honor as a husband and father should be an inspiration to anybody that ever wants to do the "right" thing in their life. Mike Romano was a shining example. He now has the task of raining three beautiful children. His in-laws and great people and Mike's family is also (His father, Big Steve Romano was a powerhouse
