Major League Baseball Players who served in World War II

  • The Bronck Museum Catskill, NY (map)


On Thursday November 5th, the Greene County Historical Society is pleased to welcome speaker Ron Gabriele who will offer the program “Major League Baseball Players who served in World War II.” During World War II no profession was exempt from the war including baseball.

Mr. Gabriele holds an MS from SUNY Albany and a BS from SUNY Brockport. In 2003 he retired from Columbia Greene Community College where he held the position of Athletic Director and taught health and physical education for many years. His interest in World War II and baseball began at an early age with childhood memories of growing up during wartime.

The program will begin at 7pm and be held in the reading room of the Greene County Historical Society’s Vedder Research Library located on the grounds of the Bronck Museum. The Bronck Museum is located just off US 9W 1.5 miles south of the intersection of routes 9W, 385, and 81 near Coxsackie. This program is free and open to the general public, but donations would be appreciated in support of the Beecher Scholarship – a $1,000 annual scholarship awarded to a Greene County senior high school student who writes a paper related to Greene County history.
