The Brick Store Museum Display Reaches the Big Leagues
Baseball fans take note, enjoy this fun trip through the lives and the careers of two major league ballplayers that began their notable sports journeys at Kennebunk High School. "Colby Jack" Coombs (1882-1957) and his nephew Bobby Coombs (1908-1991) both remarkable local athletes went on to play in the big leagues.
An outstanding pitcher, Colby Jack's accomplishments include three World Series wins playing for Connie Mack's Philadelphia Athletics during the 1910 Series.
Bobby Coombs also pitched for the Philadelphia Athletics and later for the New York Giants. In his major league debut, Bobby pitched to the New York Yankees "Murderer's Row" with the likes of Lou Gehrig and Babe Ruth. The "Babe" hit home run #664 courtesy of Bobby. Even back then we had a good reason to hate the Yankees.
Both major leaguers went on to coach and both have university baseball stadiums named in their honor.
Learn more as you "round the bases" and enjoy the history of baseball and these two Kennebunkers.
