Basketball Blasts from the Fenton Family's Past. . .
As we root for our favorite team during "March Madness", we thought we'd share a few "Basketball Blasts from the Fenton Family's Past." Fenton family members from the second and third generations have always enjoyed participating in basketball. Shown below, far left: Frank M. Fenton stood 6' 7" tall when he played basketball for Marietta College in 1933-34. He was fond of saying that he was actually "5 foot 19 inches".

 

Frank's son Tom recalls the basketball backboard on the edge of their paved driveway with bushes beyond. "We played a lot," he said. "One on one or 2-on-2. Dinner waited while we tried to get to 11 baskets, or 15, or whatever was 'game.'" Robust competition often landed a Fenton among the evergreens, amidst laughter and references to the "bush dragons" claiming yet another victim.


Frank M. Fenton, 1933-34


The "Fenton Five" (back row and first on bottom left) pose with some of their teammates after winning an Industrial League Championship game in the Marietta Recreation Department League in the 1970s. Other team members included Fenton employees.

Imagine this starting lineup in the 1970s: Mike Fenton, 6 foot 6; Tom Fenton, 6 foot 4; George Fenton, 6 foot 4; Don Fenton, 6 foot 1; and Randy Fenton, 6 foot even. Yes, the five third-generation Fenton men were together on the court when they played basketball in the Marietta City League on a team sponsored by . . . who else? . . . the Fenton Art Glass Company! Can you name and place the "Fenton Five" in the photo?
