I am so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. I just read about it in Baseball America. He was a great pitching coach and helped me immensely. His confidence in me helped me to succeed and to get to pro ball. I remember our time in Garden State League ball, GCC vs CCC and rookie ball fondly. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

When I was 9 years old Mr. Narleski spoke at my Little League Banquet. He gave a nice talk but stayed around afterward talking baseball and signing autographs.That was 1958 and I still have that autograph today.He was the first celebrity I ever met and was so nice to all us kids.My sincere condolences to your entire family.

Just wanted to share a childhood memory. I grew up in St. Clair Shores, Mi. When Ray Narleski was traded to the Tigers we discovered that he and his family were renting a house on Brookdale St. I lived just 2 blocks away so my friends and I would go by his house every once in awhile. If he was home, he would always come outside and talk baseball with us. Of course that made a big impression on me and my friends. All of us who love baseball share in your loss.

So sorry to read of Ted's passing. I'm an old Mountain ball teammate and friend, with RCA on the Islands. I'll inform Alex on Hawaii. May He RIP.

Steve and Jeff, so sorry to hear of your fathers passing. I will always remember your dad from our baseball playing days together and when he used to pitch to us in batting practice, wow, what a curve ball! He was a great teacher and person. There should be more people like your dad in this world. I will miss him. Hope you and your families are doing good. My thoughts and prayers are with you...Take care

Sorry to hear about your lost, I haven't seen any of you in years, I went to school with Ray Jr. we both graduated from Highland Regional High School in 1968. Again I am sorry about your lost, hope the family will remember me it has been close to 35 years since I saw Mrs. Narleski, and even longer since I saw the kids.
