St. Joe's honored Greater Buffalo Sports Hall of Fame member Joe Wolf on Friday as part of the official start to the baseball tournament that is named after the school's legendary former athletic director and coach.
The Joseph P. Wolf Baseball Classic begins at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Robert T. Scott Complex with the Marauders facing Clarence. Rochester private school McQuaid then faces Clarence at 12:30 p.m. with St. Joe's facing the Knights at 3 p.m.
In addition to alumni and friends of the school hosting a reception in his honor, organizers unveiled a new plaque in Wolf's honor.
While Wolf, a 1957 alumnus of St. Joe's, is known more for his work as athletic director from 1966-2008 as the school's sports program grew from six to 16 sponsored teams, he guided St. Joe's baseball to two Georgetown Cups and (1968-69) and more than 130 victories during his coaching tenure.
