I worked on the Corry Journal,Corry,Pa.,Erie County and I interviewed Chuck Tanner
in 1960 when he was in our town as representative of a Midwestern
Photography Company commissioned to take photos of the local school
I have a question as to whether Richie Allen of Wampum or any of his brothers was at the viewing or funeral for Chuck. I was at Richie's Wampum residence about 10 years ago. We had two big leaguers from our hometown in Erie County but I've always regarded Richie Allen, later known as Dick, as my all time favorite player. I saw Richie in his first big league season (1964) at Crosley Field, Cinncinati in a Sunday doubleheader on July 19,Richie connecting for a titanic homerun over the clock atop the left field scoreboard. Jim Bunning was pitching for the Reds.
