The Boston Amateur Basketball Club held its annual Boston Shootout this past weekend. The Shootout is one of the most storied events in all of New England with a long list of notable alumni at both the college and professional levels. However, this year the event took on an added dimension as it tipped off on Friday night with the Mike Crotty Memorial Games. Mike Crotty was the longtime coach and director of another top local AAU program, the Middlesex Magic, before he unexpectedly passed away on February 2, 2010. Basketball and family were synonymous for Crotty as was exemplified by the fact that both his brother, George Crotty, and his son, Mike Crotty Jr., coached with him in the Magic program.
