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
Imagine this starting lineup during the
1970s: Mike Fenton, 6' 6"; Tom Fenton, 6' 4"; George
Fenton, 6' 4"; Don Fenton, 6' 1"; and Randy Fenton, 6'
even. These 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? . . . Fenton Art Glass Company! Can you name and
place the "Fenton Five" in the photo?
The "Fenton Five" (back row and
first on bottom left) pose with some of
teammates after winning an Industrial League
Championship game in the Marietta Recreation Department
League in the 1970s. Other team members included Fenton
