Memories Timeline


  1. The passing of Steve Spensky has left me with a bundle of memories.Steve was one of the greatest athletes i have ever seen. As a catcher, he played on the old Clover Farm Store baseball team that had several players who made it to the majors. After baseball had a lull in Weirton, softball took over. Crowds of 2 to 3 thousand would attend the nightly games. It didn’t take long for Steve to be referred to as “Mr Softball”. Small of stature but big of heart, Steve will long be remembered as a major “Player” of Weirton of yesterday!!
