We were sorry to hear of the death on June 7 of well-known St. Mary of the Hills athlete, baseball player, and Boston College graduate Bill Sullivan.
Bill, who was the son of the late Bill Sullivan, another great Milton star, was a nice guy and very generous. He started his own insurance agency on Central Avenue long ago which is now run by his sons.
I remember the years that I coached the very good St. Mary of the Hills intermediate baseball team that he played on. Bill, along with Rich Grady, were the star pitchers, and his younger brother, the late Jeff Sullivan, the former BC star lineman, was the catcher and caught left-handed.
