Jack may be the only sandlot manager in Akron Amateur Baseball history to manage State championship teams in three age divisions. As a player himself, Jack was an average infielder at Copley and Buchtel High Schools and turned to managing in 1956. He had winning teams on all three levels, the first big one with 1958 State Class D champ Post #209. He moved into AA ball with Akron Merchants, then with the powerful Black Labels including the 1967 AABC State Championship. He also handled AA champ Wayne Knolls Farm in 1969-70 and led Barberton Weather-Seal to NABF Tournament action in Buffalo, NY and Nashville, TN, in 1971-72. He closed with WABL Class F teams and got his third State title in AABC play in 1974.
