Year Inducted – 1986

Playing with assumed names was prevalent in Eddie Lukacik’s day, so when his father objected to him playing baseball, Eddie took the name Vincent. Being a member of a family of 14 children, Eddie Vincent was able to escape the house and play the game he so dearly loved without his father ever suspecting. A tough defensive receiver, Eddie became the catcher because as he says, “No one else wanted to.” Besides handling mound staffs with efficiency, Eddie got his hits in the clutch for such teams as the Cuyahoga Falls Majestics, the Killian Celtics, Atlantic Foundry and Goodrich Local 5–all Champions with Eddie Vincent behind the plate from 1930-40.
