Oldtime Game History
Two former big-leaguers have come out of retirement to play in the Oldtime Baseball Game while wearing this uniform. The first to do so was right-hander Mike Smith, a product of St. Sebastian’s School in Needham who pitched parts of two seasons in the big leagues with the Toronto Blue Jays (2002) and Minnesota Twins (2006). He appeared in the 2021 Oldtime Baseball Game. He was followed in 2022 by first baseman/outfielder Chris Colabello, a Milford High grad whose four seasons in the big leagues also included stints with the Twins (2013-14) and Blue Jays (2015-16).
John Gorman of Norwood and Boston College, who wore this uniform in 2012 and ’13, was selected by the Oakland A’s in the 31st round of the Major League Baseball amateur draft in 2015.
Also worn by:
Sam Shaughnessy, Boston College (’09); Benjamin Lima, Quinsigamond Community College (’10); Tim Quinn, Assumption College (’11); Jay Delaney, Boston College (’14); Lionel Danielson, UMass/Boston (’15); Keenan Luliano, Colby College (’16); Tom Diskin, Bentley University (’17-19).
