Territo doing his part to preserve baseball history in Rochester

From Alan Morrell at the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle on July 28, 2012, on SABR member Joe Territo:

In his dayside job, Joe Territo photographs retinas at a medical center in Brighton.

Many nights, he focuses his camera eye on Frontier Field, as a team photographer for the Red Wings.

And on weekends, Territo is often at Genesee Country Village & Museum, suiting up to play 19th century-style baseball.

On deck for the Greece resident: Continued development of the Rochester Baseball Historical Society, of which he is president. The group is dedicated to preserving Rochester’s long and rich history of the game, which Territo said includes a former meadow downtown where baseball was played nearly 200 years ago.

“For him, it’s all about baseball,” said Territo’s wife, Kim. They met while both attended Greece Olympia High School, with Joe graduating in 1979 and Kim the following year. Their Stone Road home includes a room that Joe converted from a photo studio to what Kim calls his “man-cave.” (He prefers “museum.”)

Joe Territo, 51, once worked as a sports photographer for the Rochester Americans hockey team. He later worked for years as a surgical technician at Park Ridge Hospital, where he was “part of the team” in the operating room. At the same time, he maintained a commercial photography business with his home studio.
