I remember Paul as a young Tigers fan.

I saw Paul Foytack pitch for the Syracuse Chiefs in 1964 when I was 11 years old. The Chiefs had a great season, finishing in 2nd. place and going to the Governor's Cup finals. and Paul won 10 games .I was very sorry to read he had passed and please accept my deepest sympathies. I am enclosing a clipping from a game Paul pitched on Wednesday July,29,1964 at MacArthur Stadium.

Having grown up in Michigan a life long Tiger fan (also living in Tn. now). I would like to give my condolences to the family at this time. In living to be 90 years old Paul surely lived a blessed and full life. May you find comfort and strength in the days ahead as you reflect on your great memories of Paul.

After Paul retired from baseball he was a rep for F.B.Wright.
I bought some of the items from him. We developed a friendship.
He invited me to go with him to the pre-baseball season event at Mexican Industries for a few years. It was such a treat for me.
I loved all his stories. He was a super person. It was my honor to know him.
All the best to all his family. RIP Paul.

Paul,was a great guy, very kind to this 18 year old from California. He could have been a stand-up comedian. Great stories I still tell about his hilarious antics, especially one regarding Mickey Mantle. Thanks for the memories Paul .Jim Small

What a joy to have known Uncle Paul. A man of great humor, charisma and positive attitude. Over the years I came across many people that knew of Paul from his ball playing days and had numerous conversations with them. Before he was my father in law, my wife's dad was very familiar with Paul's playing days and we talked of it many times. He assumed I was all right since I was related to Paul! From the time I was very young to very recently, baseball stories could be recounted. Watching Mariner games, the announcers would sometimes bring Paul up in their banter and always raised a sense of pride for me. During his last visit to Washington State to see my father Ed, the local newspaper interviewed him. He provided perspective on the game today compared to the game from his playing days. Indeed a different time. I wish we could have spent more time with him over the years but I still have all the memories. Deepest sympathy to Paul Jr. Susie, Kathy Peggy and all their families. I am sure he will be truly missed.

I am a fan of Mr. Foytack. I saw him pitch at my first major league game at Briggs Stadium vs. Baltimore in 1955 or 1956. Subsequently, he became my favourite pitcher for my favourite team. I enjoyed reading about his memories, and about his friendship with Ted Williams. Thank you for the memories.

He was a great Dad. He had a quick and constant sense of humor.
I remember fondly of riding to the park on Saturdays & Sundays with him and some of the other players.
He loved his family and was generous to a fault.
Thanks Pop I miss you.

I played with Paul from 1971 to 1974 when he played semi-pro ball after his MLB career. He was a wonderful teammate and person. I last saw Paul about 15 years ago. I had him sign a baseball for me. He wrote, at my request: "To John Dykes, the best catcher I ever saw". We both got a big laugh out of that. My condolences to his family.

Foytack was the pitcher when Mantle hit his first homer out of Briggs Stadium. When Mantle made loud contact with the ball Van Patrick said one word "GONE". Still one my favorite calls ever.
