Rae Armstrong is a multi-sports star who was a dominating pitcher in the heyday of Cornwall’s softball leagues of the 1950’s.

Known as the “Speedball Merchant” Rae was also a feared hitter.

Rae could be and was, called upon to pitch in back to back games over the course of his career.

In 1954, Rae was a key player on the Howard Smith Paper Mill team that won the North End Championship.

Long time manager of that team, Ralph Gault said of Rae, “There isn’t a hurler in the city who can work as often and as effectively.”
