Larry 'Boston Shorty' Johnson

One Pocket Hall of Fame Induction

Photo Gallery, Page 1 of 2

The crowd filled Dave Egdal’s Brighton Billiards Thursday evening for a special local One Pocket Hall of Fame event honoring the late Larry ‘Boston Shorty’ Johnson. Many of Shorty’s old friends and companions on the road came out to exchange stories and remember the legendary pool and billiards star. Though barely more than five feet tall, he was a giant of a player, one of a very select few cue stars to win major championships on both pocket and pocket-less tables.
