During the time Mike was in charge and for almost 30 years, youth baseball flourished in the Firestone Park area and was the standard bearer for all groups in the city, under his leadership as field manager or general manager of 18 youth teams. Not only were his teams successful in the area, but they became State powers as well from the class H thru the class D level. Mike spent countless hours promoting and building the competition and the growth of the Greater Akron Baseball Federation and AABC Leagues in our area. Two of his most successful title teams were Lockhart Construction and the Firestone Park Kiwanis, both teams winning numerous District and State titles and becoming National finalists.
