b. 1964

Year Inducted
At the time of his induction, Shane Patrick Conlan was the youngest person to be inducted in the Hall of Fame, having been born on March 4, 1964 in Olean to Dan and Kay Conlan. His Dad's favorite movie was a Western called Shane, which starred the late Alan Ladd as a gunfighter.

"I didn't know that was my husband's favorite movie until Shane was born," said Mrs. Conlan.

At the age of 2, Conlan moved from Salamanca to Frewsburg where eventually he became not only the greatest athlete in Frewsburg history, but one of the finest ever turned out in this area.

Growing up in Frewsburg, one could see this was somebody special as he was an outstanding baseball player in the Southeast Chautauqua National Little League, the East Lake Babe Ruth League and the Chautauqua County 16-18 Babe Ruth League.
