New Orleans - 1982.   The boys baseball team from Ustica came to New Orleans for some exhibition games.



Please help us identify these Usticese men! This is a photo of the San Bartolomeo Society of New Orleans.   The only person positively identified is bottom row last man, Antonino Bertucci (b. 20-JUN-1857 Ustica, d. 17-FEB-1944 New Orleans, husband of Rosalia Omner (aka Gumina)). Upper row 1st man is believed to be Antonio Sidoti (b. 17-SEP-1832 Ustica, d. 12-JUN-1909 New Orleans, husband of Rosalia Poretto).   It is strongly suspected that upper row 2nd man and bottom row 1st man are Bertucci.   Also bottom row 4th man may be Tranchina.   Photo from the family album of Marilyn Barbera.
