Joseph C. “Goople” McCloskey is honored by the “Old Timers Bats and Balls”

 
Joseph C. “Goople” McCloskey was born in Tacony in 1920, and graduated from Northeast Catholic High.

Although accomplished at various sports, Joe’s true passion was boxing. He participated as a middleweight and light heavyweight at local venues.

In 1946, Joe joined the Philadelphia Police Department. because of his background in sports, McCloskey was among the first officers chosen for the Police Boys’ Club. Over the years, McCloskey’s teams would take home championship trophies too numerous to mention.

Joe retired in 1984 after thirty-seven years of dedicated service. He was posthumously inducted into the P.A.L. Hall of Fame and the Northeast Catholic High School Hall of fame. His career fills four scrapbooks.
