Bobby Nash

A man whose feats with baseball at old West High, the Akron Area sandlots and Toledo University are legendary. At West High he was a natural athlete - a star in baseball, football, basketball and track. But baseball was his great love. He pitched a no-hitter in high school, two more in the Akron sandlot leagues and three more while pitching for the Toledo U Rockets. Once for the old Smith Sheriffs AA Club he won 13 of 14 decisions, striking out 139 in 106 innings as well as hitting a .428! And in 1948, while pitching for the Borden Autos, he pitched 33 scoreless innings in the AABC Championships at Battle Creek and was named the outstanding player of the tournament.
