Bill was a good friend during our high school days at Detroit Denby High. I will always remember him encouraging me in my sport endeavors. Always a smile and a friendly pat on the back.

To the Lajoie family, Bill was a good friend during our fun high school days at Denby High. Not only a good athlete but also a truly all around guy! I never did have the chance to run into him after these years but I sure did follow his wonderful career.

In 1971 the Detroit Tigers drafted an 18-year-old boy from Flint, MI in the sixth round, mostly on the recommendation of a great baseball man, a scout for the Tigers. The scout went out of his way, accompanied the boy on his trip to the rookie league team in Bristol, VA, and even stayed a few extra days to make sure the boy felt comfortable in his new surroundings. The boy, unfortunately, never fulfilled the potential the scout saw in him, and the Tigers released him in 1976. The scout went on to accomplish great things in baseball as a general manager and consultant. They never saw one another again after 1976, but the boy was forever grateful to this great man for giving him the opportunity to chase his dream. That boy was me. My name is Jeff Natchez, and I will never forget that great man- his name is Bill Lajoie.
