Stan Ziomek, aka "Mr. Baseball"
But his memories will remain in the most prominent playing field in town named in his honor, the generations of players who came up under his tutelage or anyone who interacted with him via the Rotary, Recreation Department or his long time spent as DPW Director and Tree Warden.
Ziomek Field, the little office he used to hand out baseball uniforms (far left) and War Memorial Pool he made happen
While I was never particularly adept at the great game of baseball I learned from Stan how to work hard at what you love, play fair, and never, ever, surrender. Qualities that served me well in sport karate.
So long Stan. Enjoy the view. You now have the best seat in the house.
