Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A grand celebration was recently held in honor of the 85th birthday of “Mr. Malden Babe Ruth League” Bob Rotondi. An overflow crowd turned out at the Malden Moose to honor Bob, who happens to be fresh off his induction into the Malden Baseball Legacy Hall of Fame earlier in the month. He was honored as the very first Legacy Inductee in the new Hall of Fame for his coaching career that extends back to the 1950s. To this day he still works as the Manager of the Malden Babe Ruth League Knights, racking up nearly 70 years with Malden baseball. Bob was celebrated with great food, a standup comedy show, gifts and songs. Mayor Gary Christenson surprised Bob with a Key to the City and thanked him for his contributions to Malden along with his tremendous friendship over the years.
