"Condolences to the Delich Family. The Delich family lived across the alley from us in our old South Deering neighborhood during the 1950's. They had a basketball hoop attached to their garage and, as a youngster, I would sneak over there and shoot a few hoops. Tommy was also a very talented softball player who played on my older brother's team, "Marty's". My teammates and I had the privilege of playing against Tommy on many occasions. He was an outstanding "Left Fielder" with awesome power. He hit many prodigious home-runs for any team that picked him up. What a marvelous athlete he was. Rest in peace, Tommy."
