Roland M Wirths, Falmouth, Sports editor for the local Gannett newspapers.

A photograph from page 12 of the May 12, 1947, Portland Press Herald shows a celebration at home plate of the ballfield now known as Hadlock Field. According to the original caption, “Lou Tuminelli, whose fine play is making the Portland fans forget Tommy Siok, gets the glad hand from Captain Paul Gaulin and Johnny Dennis after slamming a four-bagger in the fifth frame to score Dennis also. The (Manchester) Giants halted the Pilots’ three-game win streak, 6-3.”
