It’s too bad Pasquale “Pete” Cera passed away before we started this campaign to get Dick Allen elected to the Hall of Fame. Imagine the stories Pete could have told about Dick. The two men has an incredible friendship for 44 years.
In researching material for our presentation we came across this comment about Pete from Dick:
“I thank God that Pete walked through my life. He was great influence on me through tough segregated times. He was there for all of us, no matter what color. He stands among the tallest men in my career.”
