Featured hall of famer

“Baseball is like everything else. You got to study every angle to win.” 

Selected as Delaware’s “Athlete of the Year” in 1976, Judy Johnson was one of the greatest third baseman ever. 

A .300 hitter, Johnson helped Hilldale win three titles in a row in the 1920s and helped the Pittsburgh Crawfords to a championship in 1935.

The Judy Johnson Stadium was built in 1997 in recognition of Johnson’s accomplishments as a player and as a Delawarean.
