Doug, my deepest sympathy to you & your family on the passing of your beloved father, Paul. I have great memories of him as I played Little League baseball and he had a great flair for the dramatics when calling balls & strikes. He would bellow, "Stir-ake, when it was for Strike Two, he would go, T---w----o--. I never forget how great he was and I did work with him at Wheeling-Pittsburgh Steel Co. later on. May he rest in peace. G. David Sivak - Greensburg, PA
