If this county, or area, or city, had a Sports Hall of Fame, Paul Moosmann certainly would be in it. He was a sports personality par excellence of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s in this area, and even after that. He created many local sports memories and it was sad to learn of his passing this past Monday, with funeral services set for Saturday at St. Gertrude in Krakow.

We knew him from the days when we played on the same juvenile baseball team, Mauntel’s Cubs, in our grade school years. Paul went on to be a star basketball player and softball pitcher at Washington High School. He played against Borgia teams in basketball in the mid-1940s and later. He was in the last scheduled games against Borgia in the 1946-47 season, and the two schools didn’t play each other for a period unless in tourney play. After high school, he pitched softball and played some basketball for adult amateur teams until he entered the Army during the Korean War.
