Douglas Hartley was a four-year starter in baseball from 1968-71. The Lincoln, Rhode Island native was a pitcher, outfielder and first baseman during his career as an Anchorman.
He was one of the first players in school history to accumulate over 100 career hits in a time when the team played approximately 20 games a season. He was perennially one of the squad’s leaders in hits and batting average. Used primarily as a starting pitcher, Hartley teamed with fellow Athletic Hall of Famer Art Pontarelli ’71 to each throw one game of a doubleheader and exchange defensive positions in the other.
Hartley earned a bachelor’s degree in secondary education from Rhode Island College in 1972 and his master’s degree in public administration from the University of Rhode Island in 1993.
He has worked with the Rhode Island Public Utilities Commission for 32 years and is currently the Director of Energy Policy and Planning. Since 1986, Hartley has been the Coordinator of the Rhode Island Energy Siting boards.
Hartley is a member of the Glocester Country Club, which he calls a little piece of Heaven straddling Route 44.
He resides in North Scituate, Rhode Island with his wife Lois ’70. They have two children: Amanda (31) and Allison (24).
