French inducted FRENCH

Continued from page 11

whole show centered around a slippery fellow named French. He bucked the line. He hurled passes. He caught passes, he ran ends. He punted.” The next week the team defied

league officials and played a game outside their market against the Notre Dame Four Horsemen team. They defeated the heavily favored Irish 9-7. The victory did more to launch the NFL than any other single event, yet the NFL stripped the Ma- roons of their title for defying the league. Following the 1925 season, Wal- ter decided to concentrate on baseball. His best season was 1926 when he batted .305 in 397 at bats for the A’s. He followed that up with an-

other great year in 1927 when he hit .304. In 1929, Walter’s last year in the major leagues, the A’s won the World Series over the Chicago Cubs. Many consider that team to be among the great- est of all time.

Walter continued to play pro- fessional baseball until he retired in 1937 when he accepted the po- sition of head coach of the West Point baseball team, a position he held for five seasons.

After the 1942 season, he lever-

aged an acquaintance with Dou- glas MacArthur and was com- missioned an officer in the U.S. Army at age 43. He died on May 13, 1984, and

remains one of only two men in history to have played on World Series winning and NFL Cham- pionship teams. Lenny Wagner, Historical Soci-

ety Trustee and curator of the Sports Legends of Moorestown exhibit, brought French’s story to the attention of the South Jer- sey Hot Stovers earlier this year. “The most gratifying thing

about the exhibit’s success is the exposure it has brought to Moorestown athletes from by- gone eras like Walter, Joe Burk and Al LeConey,” Wagner said. The 51st Annual Hot Stovers Baseball Hall of Fame Awards dinner was held at Masso’s Columbus Manor in Williamstown, on Saturday, Nov. 27.
