About Newark

The city of Newark, Ohio competed in four national tournaments but left without a win each time. After failing to qualify out of the 1966 Altoona Regional, manager Joseph West's Modern Plumbing crew played their first game in Johnstown at Price Memorial Field. They were shut-out 1-0 by Transit Paving from Buffalo, and then lost 7-2 to Allentown.

Modern Plumbing represented Newark for the next 4 years, losing twice in Altoona and finishing in 15th place in 1968 and 1970. The 1968 team lost 13-2 to Ann Arbor and 10-1 to Baltimore. In 1970, it was a 7-1 loss to Detroit and a 9-6 lost to Brooklyn, both games at Price Memorial Field.

After not competing in the 1972 season, Newark returned with manager Tom Haycook in 1973, but again could not record a victory. They lost 20-0 to Baltimore at Miller Field and were eliminated in their final AAABA game 9-5 by Brooklyn.
