    We remember Lennie from when he played Khoury League for Harry for
    quite a few years. One special Memory we have is when he was young and
    playing center field and the other manager on the other team called time out
    and told Harry he better check on Lennie, he was running around so Harry
    went out to find out what was wrong and Lennie said there was a bee and he
    didn’t want to get stung but was trying to play his position/ We have so many
    fond memories of the players on that team. They were such a joy to work
    with.
