3046A ceremony was recently held in Essex County for Arthur Bundy, a former student athlete who passed away this past summer.  Arthur’s family was presented with the #20 baseball jersey to serve as recognition for Arthur’s contributions to the 1999 Essex High School state championship  baseball team.

A plaque was also hung on the baseball pressbox to serve as a memorial of his pitching experiences at Essex High School from 1999 to 2001. The plaque commemorated Bundy’s perfect game as a pitcher in his team’s 12-0 win vs. Middlesex on May 30, 2001. Photo by Dawn Howeth.
