Where would an Italian baseball-playing family from Providence, RI move to in Akron? North Hill of course! Charles “Mim” DiLauro joins his son, Jack, in the Hall of Fame. Ironically, both were pitchers. Mim’s first team was Weeks Lumber Nine. He then twirled for such teams as Kent Twin Coach, Black and Deckers, Buxbaum Salvage and Atlantic Foundry, which he helped lead to the League title. Using an assortment of junk pitches, Mim helped Mayflower Hotel reach the NABF finals in Washington, D.C., and did the same thing for West Chevrolet in 1936, and the Killian Celtics in 1940. He finally got his first and only no-hitter while pitching for the Celtics against Carrollton. Mim closed out his outstanding career with Rube Terry and his Goodrich Local 5 team.
