The late David "Agarn" Crisafulli '81 titled his autobiography Good Enough.
A close friend and former baseball teammate wants his legacy to be much more than good enough. Along with former coach Walter Nitardy and current skipper Frank Paino, Richard Lashley '80 is establishing the David "Agarn" Crisafulli '81 Fund.
"I wanted to do something to memorialize him and baseball was the obvious choice," said Lashley, who played outfield with Crisafulli at Oswego. They remained lifelong friends.
Once endowed, the fund will benefit the Oswego baseball team in perpetuity. A large part of Good Enough recounts Crisafulli's career as a student athlete and, briefly, as a minor league ballplayer.
"This is a permanent legacy that memorializes Agarn, but also helps defray the costs of running the baseball program," Lashley said. "As a former player I know that a little money goes a long way — whether for equipment or to pay for travel to another game."
In addition to being a talented and competitive player, Crisafulli had a "larger than life" personality that made him a friend to many, Lashley said. He hopes in addition to former baseball players who have been solicited, others will honor Crisafulli with a gift.
Donations may be sent to the SUNY Oswego Office of Development or online. Designate gifts for the David "Agarn" Crisafulli '81 Fund in the memo line of checks or in the appropriate space on the online giving form.
