I had the good fortune to be the sports editor of the FSU student newspaper, "The Flambeau from 1958-60 and also to work in the sports information office under the legendary SID Pat Hogan. During that time I covered the FSU baseball team and traveled with it on those long bus rides. Danny Litwhiler took me under his wing providing me with information while teaching me baseball. They toss around terms like "Good Guy", but Danny really personified that term. He was not only a teacher of baseball, but a teacher of men. At FSU he led great players like Dick Howser, Frank Slusser and Ron Fraser. I always remember him talking getting the field ready after some rain with his "Diamond Grit". If I remember correctly, he made the all-time college baseball team at one time. He was truly one of a kind. He will be missed. My sincere condolences to Pat and to the family.

I grew up in Nescopeck, PA about 10 miles from Ringtown, where Danny was born.
I started my college days at Duke University, and after a half semester there, I received a call from Danny offering me a scholarship to come and play baseball with him at Florida State. He forever changed the course of my life, as there I met my wife of 52 years, and developed as a ballplayer to play professional baseball, and later go into coaching at the high school and college level for about 35 years. He was a fine example of how a gentleman conducts himself on and off the field.
We offer our sincere condolences to the family.

Sincerely,
Frank & Sissy Slusser

I was sorry to hear of Danny's passing. He was friends with my grandfather (Jack Moore) when they lived in Florida. My grandfather spoke highly of him. A few years after my grandfather's passing, Danny was nice enough to talk with me through an exchange of letters about their contributions to baseball. I always regarded Danny very highly, and will treasure the memorabilia I have of his. My thoughts are with his family.
