One of the greatest ever. A strong competitor. A dominating pitcher. A true champion. A leader on the field. A first-class man. He always made his teammates better. The best. And, many of his opponents, as well, who had to step up their games to stay on the field competing with him. It was my tremendous honor to have known Ed Workinger and to have competed against him during my career with York Township. We played many epic games over the years. I always had huge respect for him and for Conrads. They all set the standard for and established the definition of Champion in the Susquehanna Baseball League. His legacy will live on. Rest In Peace, Ed. GODSPEED.

The Workinger Family,
I am saddened to see the passing of Ed. He was a great high school teammate both as a person and a player. Another Hall of Famer and I were just yesterday remembering what a great pitcher he became over the years. My deepest sympathy.
