Grew up with Roger in the village and played countless baseball game in the streets and ball fields. Played both basketball and baseball with Roger up to our high school years. You can ask anyone in our age, or surrounding age, who was the best hitter they ever saw. There is no discussion. It was Roger. As a freshman in high school, the basketball coach at the time wanted Roger to play/practice with the varsity. AS A FRESHMAN. He was going to be the best baseball player of all time in our area. Of course, he met Carol. No discussion there, either.

One of the most memorable moments with Roger was motoring up the "new" interstate in 1968. The memorable part - doing 130 mph in his new black Road Runner. We made the game on time. I believe he got 4 hits, as well.

Sorry for your loss.
