Coach – 1991
Joe just put the finishing touch on his 40-year career by leading his Brooklawn American Legion Post 72 team to its first National Championship. Playoffs and tournaments are not new to Joe. During his tenure, his teams have won 16 state championships and 4 regional titles. Four of his players have moved on to play in the major leagues while scores of others have contributed to the college game.
Barth’s love for the game has been enhanced by rumors of his financing teams from his own pocket. His players have often shown their appreciation for his contribution to their success by returning to thank him.
Joe was honored by the Camden County Hot Stovers when they selected him their first Coach-of-the-Year in 1984.
