I knew Kevin from the neighborhood, growing up at 38th and kedzie. Kevin's life mirrows my own life. I also attended Kelly high at the same time Kevin did. I played a lot of ball back then, sometimes against Kevin. Tremendous pitcher! I was considered a very good hitter back then, but I was no match for Kevin.struck me out 4 straight times. I also ran numbers for the local bookie, played many times at Burroughs, drank in the same bar on 35th and California. He will always be in my thoughts and prayers. I am truly sorry for his family, but I hope you find solace in his legacy. Sincely, John Holtz jh1056@AOL.com

Tommy - I was shocked to see Kevin had passed away. Over the years my family would try to follow what Kevin was doing. It was fun to see him make the big leagues and become an actor! I remember him pitching for the Foxes in Appleton, WI and your whole family would come and watch. Your family was so proud of him. He was a very nice guy and would do anything to help someone out. Please accept my late condolences. Hope all is well with you and your family.

Dawn and I considered Kevin Hickey our friend. I played on White Sox fantasy camp for three years with him, he and Jim Fregosi were our managers for the first year. Some great times in those fantasy camps with Kevin, having a laugh over a couple of beers. He pitched to me a few times in the last year, and I asked him to throw me a real fastball. And he did. I barely saw it, let alone hit it. He laughed and told me once "pitching batting practice is a great job for me, serving up meatballs to hitters!" That's typical Kevin. He was a neighborhood kid who ended up fulfilling a dream.

Dawn said a few days ago that Kevin was the most approachable person she knows in the White Sox organization, he had no pretense and was genuinely interested in what you had to say when you spoke to him. I couldn't agree more.

Meatballs, huh? Here is how some 3,000 hit club members did lifetime against Kevin Hickey:

- George Brett, 0 for 15
- Wade Boggs, 1 for 11
- Paul Molitor, 1 for 7
- Cal Ripken, Jr, 1 for 6
- Rod Carew, 1 for 5
- Carl Yastrzemski, 0 for 2

I liked Kevin, and I'll really miss seeing him at the ballpark and saying hi.
