Deep condolences to his loving family.

Al was one of a kind. I first knew of him when at Dana Park I umpired a sandlot baseball game behind the pitcher's mound with a pre-teen Al Stanek pitching; I knew then and there he was meant for 'stardom'. Throughout his baseball life...sandlot, high school, professional and Tri-County careers he demonstrated his baseball skills and a true love for the game. But along with his athletic attributes...he was a gentleman.

Sorry for your loss. I was a batboy for the Springfield Giants when Al played there. In Fact Al was my roommate on the one road trip I was allowed that year. Al was a great guy who I always looked up to and respected.

Bob, I'm sorry for your loss. I remember watching him at Szot Park as a kid. I still have his baseball card you gave me so many years ago! He was quite a man.

Great Legion coach. Remember being a young kid in the 60's when you reigned supreme at CHS. Godspeed. Glad to have known you.

Sorry to hear of Al's death. I followed Al's pitching career from 1958 to 1981. My estimates figure Al struck out 3600 professional and amateur batters. Al was nice to everyone and loved by all, I idolized the man.

Lefty, high and hard with 2 strikes. It was a great memory to play baseball with you. Tommy Bolkoxikwt
