Not sure what to say?

I met Pro in 1965 in West Palm Beach where he was a summer instructor at Dick Howser's Florida Baseball School. I was a 15 year old from Birmingham, Alabama who loved baseball more than anything and was away from home for the first time. Pro took me under his wing and taught me a lot about baseball. He wore a Chicago White Sox road uniform (#33) to practice every day and at the end of the summer, he gave me the jersey. He presented it to me in front of all the other players and said he...

I am a better person having known you from White Sox Boys Camp. I will never forget your wicked curve ball you had us try to hit! We all would jump out of the batters box. You would be on the mound with a big smile on your face.

I will never forget Pro Boim..he was my inspiration, my baseball coach at camp and one of the dearest persons I have ever known. I will never forget him. My condolences to the entire family. I loved this man. Gary Gutterman

Last Visit

Betty, we will always be remember that beautiful day we had together this summer and for that time in Florida. We wish there could've been more. We send our love and wish you comfort.

Betty: Pro is one of my most happy
teaching memories. The whole place had
a good feeling the days he was at Burns
Park. You came to teach 5th grade there when I was teaching music and
it seemed like the two of you were
almost an immediate "item." Congratulations on your 38 years
together. My sympathy is with you.
