  2. Howie coached my brother(Lindsay) and I fastball ball in the early 90s and I always enjoyed having him as a coach. Not only was he full of fastball knowledge, I remember him as a very patient, kind hearted caring man who always was in good spirits.
    He will be missed, my condolences to his family.
