Joseph Scaletta

Our deepest condolences go out to the Scaletta Family. We mourn the loss of a long time and current board member of Frankfort Baseball, Joseph Scaletta.  Joe was a long time Board Member even before since his son Sam started in 2007. Joe worked tirelessly at almost every level and the latest being at the upper levels of Pony/Colt/Palomino/Collegiate.  He was instrumental in Frankfort Baseball joining SWILA as well as coordinator of the Frankfort Baseball Scholarship program with Lincoln-Way East and area high schools.  Joe's pride and joy was Borg Warner field.  He worked endless at its upkeep.  If we had a tournament, you would have seen Joe there volunteering.  Joe loved baseball especially Frankfort Baseball.  Outside of baseball Joe was the Co-Founder of Scaletta Armoring in Bedford Park, IL. Private family funeral services will be held at Our Lady of the Wayside Catholic Church on December 1, 2020. Funeral Information: Cumberland Chapels, 708-456-8300 or www.cumberlandchapels.com.

Memorial contributions can be made in memory of Joseph V. Scaletta to Frankfort Baseball online here or you can mail a check to Frankfort Baseball, P.O. Box 261, Frankfort, IL 60423.
