I had the pleasure & good fortune of playing Slow Pitch Softball with Bob & John Crupie for both the Norwin Stars & Norwin Lounge Teams in the early '70's. I have many fond memories of our success's, good times, & friendships from those years of competing.

I had the distinct honor of playing baseball with Bob for the Bruggeman Champion Pony League Team in 1957. Bob was our outstanding short-stop for that team. He truly loved the game of baseball, and he always played it with great passion, and grit. That team was managed by his brother John, who was probably the “best manager” that I had played for. Another great baseball honor I had was coaching Bob’s son for the Norwin Colt League. On a final note, about 8 years ago my wife and I were fishing for trout at Mammoth Lake, close to “dad” Bob. He helped set- up the line for my wife, a rookie fisherman, and in a short time period she caught two 17 inch trout.
