That’s the way baseball go, as they say.

Baseball Reference.com does a great job of providing information on little known ball players. Nick was born in Punxsutawney, PA, in 1916. He played pro ball for six years, and hit .332 for the Greenburg Green Sox, in the Pennsylvania State Association (Class D), in ’38. With the Utica Blue Sox in the Class A Eastern League he hit .299 in 1944. Nick served in the army in WWII and owned the Goulish Insurance Agency in Boardman Ohio from 1950 to 1976, when he retired. Nick passed away in 1984, age 67.

Good game, Nick.
