The Brockton Rox (Futures Collegiate Baseball League) are honoring three notables — Ed Nottle, Van Schley and Jack Yunits — at Friday’s Opening Night at Campanelli Stadium.
As part of Opening Night, the Brockton Rox will hold their first-ever Hall of Fame induction ceremony prior to first pitch. Nottle spent nearly seven full seasons with the Rox as their manager and coach, while also leading Brockton to the Northeast League Championship in 2003. Schley was the franchise’s first principal owner and has been a key asset to the organization through the last decade. Yunits, the Mayor of Brockton from 1996-2006, was instrumental in the construction of Campanelli Stadium and the founding of the Brockton Rox.
