1937: Harold "Bus" Saidt
I met Bus back in the early years when I was President of St. Anthony's Holy Name Society. I had called him and asked if he would be a guest speaker at a forthcoming meeting. Bus agreed. I was delighted. Sadly, when meeting night came, I think I recall that about 7 or 8 people attended. I was mortified. Sheepishly, I told Bus I was so disappointed at the turnout. It was announced in a prominent place in our weekly church bulletin. Bus was completely gracious. Undaunted, he went on with his presentation and those few members who attended enjoyed stories of his remarkable career. He was my personal hero during the years when he and Bill Hildenbrand announced for the Trenton Giants.
