Connecticut Gridiron: Football Minor Leaguers of the 1960s and 1970s

Tuesday, January 13th at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

cover of Connecticut GridironIn the days before cable television saturated the media with live sports, small town fans turned out to support their local heroes, often men who worked on construction crews during the week and stopped by the diner Sunday morning to talk football. Now in their 60s, 70s and 80s, these men share their stories of a simpler era; the good times, like the Hartford Knights’ 1968 ACFL championship season, and the long bus rides and missed paydays that were as much a part of minor league ball as first downs and interceptions. Author and Wallingford resident Bill Ryczek extensively researched newspapers and periodicals and interviewed over 70 former players, broadcasters and journalists to write this narrative history of minor league football teams in Connecticut. A reception will follow the presentation. All ages are welcome. Please register online or by phone at (203)265-6754.
