Simon Merriwell is a name you hear frequently when old-timers want to compare a contemporary sports hero to someone from the past. Not many records were kept in those days, but one thin is unanimously certain. People who say him play say he was Major League Calibre in both football and baseball. He started his baseball career in the early 20’s with the Mt. Carmel Senators in the East Penn League. He also played with the Ashland entry in the North Schuylkill League. As a football player he starred with the Atlas Wolves, the Kulpmont Bears and the MT. Carmel Green Wave. He got the name from another legendary hero in sports literature at that time, but the legend he built was his own.
