While I never met Nick personally, I played in two Strat-O-Matic leagues with him for several years. Some of my SOM brethren can have more insightful remembrances but I appreciated Nick in my leagues. My condolences to his family.

Nick's passing leaves a big hole in my world. We shared many good times at our Strat-O-Matic gatherings. Too many fond memories to count. My deepest condolences to Peggy and the family. May his memory be for a blessing.

I met Nick about 40 years ago though Gussomo and strat o matic baseball and so enjoyed our annual get togethers with Nick. I can still remember the laughter. And in fact Nick was at my house in Pennsylvania and I his in St. Louis. The highlight was whiffle ball with son, Tony in his back yard. So enjoyed the battles between the Italian Stallions and the Moylan Monks. So sorry for your loss.

So sorry to hear of the passing of my old friend Nick. Many good times shared in our love of the game of baseball that goes back nearly 40 years. My thoughts and prayers are with Peggy and the Family.
