Teeing Off One Last Time

Coach Sacharski teaches 5-year-old Craig LeClair the art of T-Ball, 1958

America lost another great leader yesterday when Jerome “Jerry” Sacharski, 98, died in his home in Albion, Michigan. Serving as a teacher and coach in the Albion Public Schools system from 1951-1980, Sacharski is often credited with inventing T-Ball and Albion was one of the first places where it was played as an organized sport.

Without t-ball, I might never have become a major league baseball player. As of yet, I haven’t become one, but I don’t think the tee had anything to do with that. Besides, there’s still time. If Paul McAnulty can be on a roster than someone should sign me up too.
