Bill “Lefty” Hunt

 Bill Hunts distinguished softball career began in the 1940s with a team from the May Club. He also played for the Club Marquette and Red Circle in the neighborhood leagues and with Fewer Boilers in the Windy City League. Born and raised on Chicago’s Southwest Side, “Lefty” Hunt is remembered as being one of the top left-handed first baseman of his era who was a power hitter to right field who could also go to the opposite field with line drives. As the third hitter in the lineup Hunt chalked up many RBI’s during his long career. Veteran players of Hunt’s time remember some classic big money games between Hunt’s team and their rivals, the Snipers, another Southwest Side powerhouse. Perhaps the most memorable of these games was a 15-14 loss to the Snipers with a pot of over $1500. Since Deceased.
