Smoky Joe Wood Celebration on October 6th


Softball, Free Hot Dogs and Burgers and Lots of Fun!

Joe Wood, who spent many years living in Shohola, was a likeable chap who had a great love for baseball. His Major League career started with the Boston Red Sox as a great fastball pitcher, and ended with the Cleveland Indians as an outfielder. His best year pitching was 1912, ending a spectacular season with a 34-5 record and a 1.91 ERA. He also pitched three World Series Games for the Sox that season. He was named "Smoky" because of the velocity of his fastball. His hard throwing and an injury caused him to retire from pitching and take up the outfield. We celebrate Joe and all his accomplishments on October 6th!
The Pike County Historical Society will once again celebrate Shohola's own Joe Wood, known as Smoky Joe, on October 6th. The event will take place at the Milford Little League Field and will include free hot dogs and hamburgers to all in attendance to watch an 18 inning marathon softball game in honor of Smoky Joe. The Pike County Commissioners, Jorgenson's at the Dimmick, Milford Lions Club and the good old Pike County Hysterical Society will be the hosts of the event, and invite all to attend and watch the game. The game will include expert play by play provided by many of Milford's finest and live organ music, in the old time baseball tradition, which will be presented by Jane Mangini of Trans Siberian Orchestra. So come on down and have a dog or a burger on us, watch the game, and sing along to a rousing rendition of "Take Me Out to the Ball Game" during our 11th inning stretch.

The game starts at 11am and if wish to play please contact Lori at PCHS at 570-296-8126 or pikemuse@ptd.net. All are welcome, but be prepared to play 18 innings.
If you wish to sponsor an inning, in which your business will be touted with copy you provide during our live broadcast, please send along your check for $50 to PCHS 608 Broad Street Milord 18337 and copy about your business, friend, cause etc. We welcome all sponsorships! Proceeds from sponsorships benefit the Milford Lions Club and Pike County Historical Society.
