I received this E-mail today from former Colt baseball player Matt Lojko. If anyone can help us with this effort it would be greatly appreciated.
Matt was an excellent player back in his day and I believe it took him on to Grimsley HS and then later his brother John Lojko was a pitcher at Western Guilford. Matt had a sister Anne that attended WG and his other sister Jean was on the volleyball, basketball, and track and field teams at WG and then at UNCG and Greensboro College. Jean is now volleyball coach and assistant Athletic Director at Greensboro College and she has won numerous awards for her success in coaching volleyball. John was also a basketball player at WG and I don’t know what became of him but Matt served for many years on the Greensboro Police force.
Let’s see if we can help him find that team picture. I know there are several photos and commemoratives of the 1965 Greensboro Colts that won the World Series. Ronnie Cox and Ronnie Rudd were on that team.
Here’s the E-mail from Matt Lojko:
I was a member of the 1969 Colt All-Star Team that went to the world series in Layette, Indiana. I never received a copy of the team picture that was made and would like to know who I could contact with Colt Baseball to track this picture down. I know it exists because a friend of mine stated he saw it in a Colt Baseball Program this year. Any help you can be with this request will be greatly appreciated.
