Comments:

After traveling 45 years south on Broad St. stopping at Temple U, Thomas Jefferson University for MD degree and Radiology and Interventional Fellowship, and Methodist Hospital, I finally realized my dream.....being accepted into The Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. This occurred not as a sure handed third baseman with warning track power,but as the owner of the exhibit Home Games..A Century of Baseball Board Games. (http://web.baseballhalloffame.org/museum/homegames.jsp).

Never leaving Philadelphia,I took a detour to City Ave.,obtaining an MBA from St. Joe's. As the health care climate was changing,I felt,I needed to reinvent myself.

I am presently happily married to my best friend and amazing wife Lynne, who gave me the two greatest children Michelle 36, and Noah 33. Our family enjoys spending countless hours relaxing in Longport during the summer and South Beach in the winter.

Since my last update, We spend the majority of time in Miami Beach, golf, tennis, and staying young and active. I recently accepted a position as an operating partner in a Private Equity firm( Grantchester Group) ,where our "special sauce" is healthcare and energy. It is exciting and rewarding.

I am still involved in managing Baseball Fantasy Camps ( Phils 85,Mets 86-90,Pirates 91-94,Indians 95-98). I am now employed by the Reds( 99-present). The stories and experiences have been unique. Played 3B in 85 Pro game( Pancho Herrera ,Tony Taylor,Chico Fernandez and Coop). Got to fungo infield to Mets Pros in 86( Hernandez, HoJo, Elster, Backman) and caught Dennis Eckersley in 97, as just a few of the memories.

We travel frequently and although rarely in Philly, when people ask where we live,Philly always is our first answer......

I hope to see you in Longport or Miami Beach

Maybe share a cheesesteak from John's Roast Pork at the reunion.

School Story:

I will never forget the STORK (a.k.a. Mr.Sherzer) calling me the animal and blaming me for everything that went wrong.

Who in the world was responsible for

1.Erasing THE STATEMENT(Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it)

2. Having Elvis Presley music played thru his speakers

3. Taking the phones off the hook every day in his room.

4. Fixing the 1968 presidential election vote by having George Wallace win unanimously( abhorrent)

These deeds were perpetrated by the only student in 26 years that The Stork gave a 3 to for behavior.............Yours Truly

It was fun!!!

MARK COOPER has left an In Memory comment for Hyman Nowak.
Aug 01, 2018 at 12:33 PM

The CHURCHLOT VETERANS COMMITTE  has posthumously inducted Hyman (NOT JEREMY) Nowak into the Hall of Fame and retired his number 55. His induction plaque reads:

"Hyman's tenacity and no nonsense play as a powerful fullback and hard hitting linebacker earned him the respect of his fellow Churchlotters"

 I will personally miss that wit and dry sense of humor. He always made me laugh every time i ws in his presence
