Letter to the editor: Cheers for Bob Smizik

Letter to the editor: Cheers for Bob Smizik

Bob Smizik was my baseball coach from 1959 to 1962 in the Stanton Heights Little League, when Bob started writing for the Pittsburgh Press (Stanton Heights baseball reunion covers all the bases,” Aug. 18). These were the most formative years for me, which have guided my sense of teamwork into the present.

Bob was the best coach I ever worked under, through track and field, swimming, bicycle racing and tennis. I suppose it’s too much to hope for a reunion of the 9 to 12 year-olds from that time, but if by some miracle this should happen, I would be more than happy to attend.
