Teddy was an amazing person, someone I enjoyed getting to know while coaching baseball with him in 2019 and in 2020. Everyone on the team enjoyed being around Teddy; he brought so much joy, energy, and happiness to the baseball field everyday. It was apparent that the kids had great admiration for Teddy, and that Teddy thoroughly enjoyed being around all of the kids. Teddy always had his Pepsi close by. One memory that I'll cherish forever, is last summer, Teddy and I would "argue" (jokingly) over who would coach first base, and we'd keep track of the amount of runs that were scored when each of us were out there, and Teddy would do everything he could to motivate the kids to score more runs when he was out there (Teddy won more times than not). A simple memory, but one that I will always hold close to my heart. I'll miss Teddy being in the dugout this year; it won't be the same without him. Rest in paradise Teddy...you've made it home.
