From Barbara Serrino Jakoski:
I did manage to ask Dad about the Black Sheep Assn. and he said it was a social club and baseball team. Apparently the club started out with a German Shepherd as a mascot (he didn't say the name of the original club), but changed when he and a friend, Johnny Multa, were driving home from Donora on a back country road. Johnny saw a black sheep in the field and the idea took hold. It is a strange name and over the years I meant to ask him what the association did.
