    Peskovitz Family, We’re so sorry to hear about Mr. Pesky’s passing. The fond memories are many; seeing and HEARING him during our Little League games at Shedd Park playing for the Reds or Brad and I playing catch with his dad on Ridge Rd and making me run down the long street when one of us (me) threw it over his head (lol) or when Mr. Pesky would join Brad, John, Gary and me when we played basketball in the driveway at the Glenwood St house. Keep the memories fresh and don’t stop telling all the great stories to your children and each other. Thoughts and prayers for the whole family.
