50 years ago

The American Journal reported on June 16, 1971, that the Fraternal Order of Eagles was to honor Hormidas “Husky” Aube, the former Westbrook police officer and chief, with a testimonial roast beef dinner. Aube was a pitcher in the New York Yankees organization and was chosen to an All-American baseball team in 1930 that traveled to the West Indies. He pitched for Albany in the Eastern League before being called up in 1931 to the Yankees, where he was a teammate of Babe Ruth.
