Bob Winterburn has certainly been one of the top athletes to come out of the Jamestown area with outstanding accomplishments in the fields of baseball, basketball and softball over his many years of participation.
Winterburn, who is nicknamed "Gramps", was born in Jamestown on August 19, 1937 and started playing baseball in the City League in 1946 at the age of eight.
While hurling for the Ralph Austin Dodgers in the Class D Muny League as a youngster, Winterburn pitched two no-hitters. He also played for Jefferson in the six-team Chadakoin Valley Junior High conference and later for Art Metal and the Herman Kent Post American Legion squads.
