Forty-nine North Baltimore Basketball Alumni returned to NB to break in The Jungle at the new North Baltimore Middle - High School Complex on the northeast corner of town.
As would be expected, grads from 2012 were the youngest to don the sneakers to hit the hardwood. The oldest player was yours truly, from the Class of 1973, Jeff "Beeper" "JP" Miklovic.
A SPECIAL THANKS to Reineke Family Dealerships for donating all of the shirts for the participants!

* NOTE - "sbnr" Sorta-But-Not-Really: You will notice a really younger looking fella on each of the teams, these guys were at the top end of their actual age range (maybe next year Al) and were recruited to SUB with the Old Farts to diminish the risk for injury, heart attack and stroke. They promised not to run too fast, nor jump too high.
Thanks to all of the alumni who braved embarrassment and injury to enjoy some friendly hoops in a very nice new facility. It has been mentioned by more than a few, that this should be an annual event. However, for this to continue - MORE PLAYERS ARE NEEDED!!!
Look for news about next year's potential event...
Thanks to Jon and Rose Eichar for organizing the event!!!
