Losing A Legend: Harvey Sterkel

Harvey and his wife, Gloria, visit with baseball reenactor Paul “Slugger” Nelson of the Aurora Town team at the opening of our “Play Ball, Aurora!” exhibit in 2014.

Harvey Sterkel passed away on October 21, 2019, at the age of 85. Inarguably the finest pitcher of his time, he put Aurora on the world map of fastpitch softball playing for the Aurora Sealmasters in the 1960s.
