Bob Lennon
FameRank: 6

"Robert Albert Lennon", nicknamed "Archie," was an United States/American professional baseball player. Although Lennon struggled at the Major League Baseball/Major League level in three different trials during the mid-1950s, he was a prolific home run hitter in minor league baseball, hitting 278 homers in a 16-year career and setting the single-season home run record for the Double-A Southern Association when he belted 64 for the 1954 Nashville Vols.

An outfielder, Lennon was born in Brooklyn, New York, and signed with his hometown Los Angeles Dodgers/Brooklyn Dodgers in 1945. After three seasons in the low minors, he was acquired by the Dodgers' bitter rivals, the San Francisco Giants/New York Giants, who became the parent club of the Vols in 1952.

They wanted to try this. The idea [had been] to make the teams more even, since there are more schools in New Castle County. I think this is a good way to go and I'm hoping it has that effect with the fans' interest. I think they'd rather root for one team with all of their players.

We've got two really good newcomers. Boyd was one of the top milers in the district last spring. Whatever Principe can do for us will be a big addition to the team.

We'll see the course, and we'll see most of the teams that we'll see at district, too.

We have a solid five and some good competition for those sixth and seventh spots.
