With the World Series kicking off today, baseball is on our minds. From pick-up games on the street to little league and the majors, this week we share 5 condolence messages about America’s favorite pastime:
- To the Family, sorry to hear of Bill’s passing. I remember we played baseball in the alley behind the house on Main Street when we were about 8 or 9. most of the games would end in a fight, but the next day we would be playing ball again. [Published in Courier Press]
- Uncle Jim, It was our pleasure knowing you over the years. I always appreciated when you picked on my NY Yankees. Especially when you mailed me the headlines when they actually lost. [Published by Goodbody Mortuary]
- I am so sorry to hear the news about your mother. I’ve known her since grade school. We always had fun, she was one heck of a baseball player, she actually knocked me out with a line drive right to the head (I was pitching) after that no one wanted to pitch to her because she could hit the ball out into the field. I will always have very fond memories of her and our time together growing up. [Published in Morning Call]
- I am sorry to hear the news about my little brother, whom I have known since 1942 when I was 7 and he was 5. We won the city little league baseball championship in 1953. May god bless you and your family. [Published in the Orlando Sentinel]
- Mr. Shea was such a great influence to me when I played for Hi Hat Foods in the Elmwood Little League during the 1950s. I still have the Hi Hat Foods team baseball picture hanging in my home office. He was always a true gentleman. Some of the things he taught me, I now teach to my grandson who plays little league baseball in Las Vegas. May he rest in peace. [Published in The Providence Journal]
