ST. MARYS — Thanks to an annual drive, more than 2,000 people have received free coats to keep them warm in the winter months.
The One Warm Coat drive is in full swing and is once again seeking gently used and new men’s, women’s and children’s coats to benefit the residents of western Auglaize County. In its sixth year, the drive has collected 2,757 coats that have been dispersed to clients of Agape Ministries.
50 Years Ago This Week – 1962
This week in 1962, St. Marys native Galen Cisco hurled the New York Mets to a 4-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs in Cisco’s first starting assignment for his new team.
In the victory, Cisco tied a Major League record by striking out four pinch hitters in a single game, in addition to striking out four others in the victory.
The game marked Cisco’s first complete game in nearly five months since he hurled one for the Red Sox back in April.
