Our Players

Ludes.gif

John Luter (C, 2B, OF)

John Luter is an original "Black Sox" player, beginning in 1997.  He played at the University of Vermont in the late-1980s and was a core player for the Sox for 25 years.  His promise to "not quit playing until the year he doesn't hit a home run" turned into "until the year he doesn't steal a base" which turned into "until the year he doesn't get a hit" kept his spot on the roster for many years.

John O'Connor (P, IF, OF)

Johnny O is one of the Black Sox' most consistent pitchers, beginning in 1997.  He holds the all-time league record for the most-innings pitched.  A secretive teammate, no one knows what he does off the field.

Jeff has led off for the Black Sox for years, (except for the famous "draw the lineup out of a hat" experiment) following his college career at the University of Vermont (where he became Vermont's first-ever America East Conference Player of the Year) and was subsequently drafted by the Kansas City Royals.

Scott O'Brien.jpg

Scott O'Brien (DH, 1B)

Playing in his first Black Sox game ever while wearing Carhartts and homering over the right field fence, OB was a reliable and consistent player for years on the Black Sox.  That is, except on the mound.

2020Kenny Celeste.jpg

Kenny Celeste (3B, DH, P)

Kenny, hailing from the Dominican Republic via Puerto Rico, added some needed power to the Black Sox lineup.  He likes to yell "plakata" after hitting a game-winning homer.
