Former Falcon great Share dies
CHESTERFIELD, Mo. – Former Bowling Green Falcon standout Charlie Share died Thursday. He was 85.
A 1964 inductee into the BGSU Athletics Hall of Fame, Share, 6-foot-11, was picked No. 1 overall by the
Boston Celtics in the 1950 NBA Draft.
He is the sixth all-time leading scorer for the Falcons with 1,730 career points, averaging 14.3 points
over his 121-game career. He holds the school record with 711 free-throw attempts during his career and
was a third team All-American in 1950.
Share led the Falcons to a third place finish in the 1949 National Invitation Tournament as a junior.
Bowling Green was ranked as high as No. 10 in the country in the Associated Press poll that year.
As a senior, Share scored a career-high 39 points in a win over Loyola (Calif.) on Dec. 22, 1949 and
averaged 19.8 points per game on the season. His teams went 98-31 in four years, including a 55-3 record
at home.
Share went on to have a nine-year NBA career, serving as a team captain and winning a world championship
with the St. Louis Hawks in 1958. He played in 596 career NBA games, averaging 8.3 points per game,
including a double-double average of 13.6 points and 10.8 rebounds during the 1955-56 season.
Visitation will be from 10 a.m.-noon Tuesday at Schrader Funeral Home in Ballwin, Mo. A memorial service
will follow.
Reimold moved to 60-day DL
BALTIMORE – Former Bowling Green Falcon Nolan Reimold was moved from the 15-day disabled list to the
60-day DL by the Baltimore Orioles on Tuesday.
Reimold, who is on the disabled list with a bulging disk in his neck, has not played since April 30. He
now can not be activated until June 30, but considering he is still dealing with lingering weakness and
has not done baseball activities, he is still several weeks away from returning.
He’s played in 16 games this season, batting .313 with five home runs and 10 runs batted in.
