Congratulations to our new Hall of Fame inductee!
The 11th annual One Pocket HOF dinner featured a slideshow presentation remembering the late Freddy ‘The Beard’ Bentivegna, including a soundtrack featuring the song ‘Banking with the Beard’, written by Chicago musician and songwriter Dave Roberts. One of our very special guests this year was Freddy’s daughter Catherine ‘Cat’ Bentivegna. Freddy’s long time roommate and best friend John Bosnak provided some background stories to go along with some of the older photos of Freddy going back to his childhood and his army years.
There were no new player inductions this year for either One Pocket or Banks, however we did have one surprise Lifetime Pool in Action award, that indeed worked out to be a complete surprise — Diamond Billiard Products founder and Derby City promoter, Greg Sullivan.View all photos from the event
