Boykin signs ND jersey for auction at local fundraiser

Jacquelyn Schlabach

Editor

Miles Boykin said he

didn’t even hesitate when

asked to take part in raising

money for GiGi’s

Playhouse in Tinley Park.

The Tinley Park native

and former Notre Dame

wide receiver was recently

drafted by the Baltimore

Ravens with the

93rd overall pick. With his

busy schedule and training

camp for the coming

NFL season, he made it a

priority to come back to

his hometown July 10 to

sign a No. 81 Notre Dame

jersey at Station No. 46 to

be auctioned at the Tinley

Park Firefighters Association

2nd Annual Charity

Golf Outing set for Thursday,

July 25.

“It’s huge; you can’t

thank him enough for taking

time out of his day and

coming and doing this. It’s

exciting,” said Lt. Mike

Wittman and vice president

of the firefighters association.

All proceeds from the

jersey, which was donated

by a sports store in South

Bend, Indiana, will go

straight to charity.

“All of that goes toward

what we’re doing,” Wittman

said. “Not a dime of it

goes to Miles. Everything

that we’re doing with this

golf outing is helping others.”

Wittman said it was a

“no brainer” to ask Boykin

if he would come back

home to Tinley to sign

the jersey for auction. He

said he has know Boykin

since he was in fifth grade

through the Tinley Park

Bulldogs football program

where he coached and was

the athletic director for six

years.

“He didn’t even hesitate;

he’s such a great young

man,” Wittman said.

Boykin said it meant

a lot to him that he was

asked to play a role in the

charity outing.

“It means a lot to me for

several reasons,” Boykin

said. “The biggest one

for me, actually, is just

because obviously this is

my hometown and I love

my hometown, I always

come back, I do what I can

whenever I’m back.”

He added that the hardest

part was just planning

when he could take time

off to come home in between

his vacation time

and training camp in Baltimore,

where he now resides.

But he said it was always

a yes to come home

to help; just a matter of

when.

“It’s because of the people;

the continuous support

that they’ve always

showed me and I just want

to be able to show how

much love I have for this

town back,” Boykin said.

“It’s kind of hard to do at

times because I’m not here

often, but I always see myself

in the papers here and

I just see continuous support

from people.”

When Boykin arrived at

Station No. 46, not only

did firefighters welcome

him with open arms, but

the family of retired Lt.

Jim Gaskill was in attendance

to meet Boykin and

thank him for coming to

support GiGi’s Playhouse,

an organization that is near

and dear to Gaskill’s heart.

His 9-year-old daughter,

Grace, has Down’s syndrome

and participates at

GiGi’s.

“It feels great,” Gaskill

said. “I don’t know what

else to say, it’s wonderful.”

Miles Boykin (center) stands with the firefighters of

Station No. 46.

Tim O’Hagan, president

of the Tinley Park

Firefighters Association,

reached out to Gaskill last

year wanting to support

him and his family any

way they could.

“He asked me last year

while they were doing

this, we’d like to have

something in support of

your family with Grace,”

Gaskill said. “So he’s like,

‘What’s local, what’s close

to your heart?’ I said Gi-

Gi’s in Tinley Park; we’ve

been there a few times, we

like it [and] love the people

who work there.”

O’Hagan helped get the

charity golf outing up and

running last year, where

they donated 30 percent

of their earnings for a total

of $1,000 to Together

We Cope in Tinley Park.

This year, they’re hoping

to exceed that and donate

40 percent to GiGi’s Playhouse.

“The motto of the fire

department is we serve

others not ourselves and

that’s something that

we always want to do,”

O’Hagan said. “The association

just wants to give

back.”

In addition to the featured

charity for the outing,

O’Hagan said they

also donate to the Ron

Winterstein Scholarship,

which was set up in

memory of Winterstein,

who was a chief for the

fire department about 20

years ago. The scholarship

is awarded to children of

firefighters. Local charities

Andrew alum interviews former WH press secretary

Will O’Brien

Freelance Reporter

Sean Spicer, the former

White House press secretary

for President Donald

Trump, had a busy day

July 8, appearing on Fox

News in the morning and

again later in the day.

In between, he sat for

yet another interview, this

time with Jon Zaghloul,

a 19-year-old podcaster

from Tinley Park.

“I couldn’t believe

it,” Zaghloul, publisher

of Sports Talk Chicago

(www.sportstalkchicago.

com), said of landing the

well-known, not-uncontroversial

guest.

The two talked politics,

Trump and yes, sports,

over a 15-minute interview

that was originally scheduled

for 10.

“I milked a few more

questions out of him,” Zaghloul

said with a laugh.

The Andrew High School

alum has been going above

and beyond the activities of

the typical budding journalist

since the start of his

teenage years.

Zaghloul’s father, Asad,

who majored in journalism

in college and did

some radio work in Chicago

back in the day, passed

those passions onto his

son early during afternoons

and nights spent

watching the Cubs, Bears

and Bulls.

“He taught me about

statistics,” Zaghloul said.

“He taught me about how

the game works.”

At age 13, Zaghloul,

now a rising sophomore

at the University of Chicago,

published his first article,

with none other than

The Tinley Park Junction.

When a senior at Andrew,

he wrote a monthly sports

column for the newspaper,

and he continues freelancing

for 22nd Century Media

publications to this

day.

But he also does plenty

else, working as the broadcaster

for the Crestwood

Panthers of the Midwest

Collegiate baseball league

and hosting a weekly

sports program on University

of Chicago radio

station WHPK during the

school year, all while running

Sports Talk Chicago,

a one-man operation he

started at 13.

His mom, Tracie, is diligent

about promoting it all

through social media.

The website, accredited

by the MLB and NFL, covers

a wide range of sports

topics. Zaghloul — named

best student broadcaster by

the National Federation of

State High School Associations

while at Andrew

— dedicates more time to

podcasting than writing

these days, and Spicer is

far from his first big-name

interview.

Counting Michael Vick,

Roger Clemens, Fergie

Jenkins and many other

notable figures among his

former guests, Zaghloul

said he sends dozens of

emails a day in hopes of

landing his next big fish.

One of his earliest prominent

interviews was Cubs

play-by-player announcer

Len Kasper.

“After he came on,

things built from there,”

Zaghloul said. “I started

getting more and more

prolific stars.”

Non-sports figures besides

Spicer have included

comedian George Lopez

as well as entrepreneur and

reality TV host Marcus Lemonis.

Spicer, however, given

his prominent role during

the early days of Trump’s

presidency, and Melissa

McCarthy’s spoofing of

him on “Saturday Night

Pictured is Tinley Park podcaster Jon Zaghloul and

Fergie Jenkins, a former Chicago Cub and Hall-of-

Famer. PHOTO SUBMITTED

Live,” is arguably Zaghloul’s

biggest guest to

date.

Zaghloul reached out

to Spicer’s representative

in May and heard back

quickly. The handler said

to check back in July, and

Zaghloul did.

“That was the first thing

I did the morning of July

1,” he said.

His patience and persistency

paid off, with the

former Republican National

Committee spokesperson

answering questions

about the president,

Boston Red Sox and New

England Patriots.

Zaghloul, who described

himself as a moderate

who’s largely uninterested

in politics, emphasized that

having Spicer on his show

was in no way intended as

a political endorsement.

He pursues guests, he said,

who have the most interesting

stories to tell and

makes it his mission to get

to the behind-the-scenes

truth.

“He was very honest

about what happened during

his tenure in the White

House,” Zaghloul said.

“He was very honest, very

cordial. To me, he was a

very nice guy.”

Zaghloul, who is studying

economics at the U of

C as his backup plan, is

adamant about pursuing a

career in journalism, describing

his dream job as

broadcasting for the Cubs

or another major-market

team. He simply loves telling

stories, he said.

“For me, it’s all about

hearing someone else’s

story,” he said. “Everyone

has something interesting

to say. It’s my goal to get

that out of them.”

Fresh off his interview

with Spicer, Zaghloul

sounded enthused and said

he was working hard to

schedule his next big interview.

For now, though,

he was more than content

to reflect on what had just

transpired and how far he’s

come in his short-but-impressive

journalism career.

“For him to take the

time to sit down and talk

with a 19-year-old on the

phone — it’s really something

else.”

Say ‘Aloha’ to the return

of Tinley’s block party

Karina Lopez, Editorial Intern

Tinley Park will celebrate

its 21st annual Block

Party from noon to 7 p.m.

Sunday, July 21. This

year’s theme is tropical,

and will continue to be for

the following years.

Guests can enjoy free

entertainment along Oak

Park Avenue from 171st to

Hickory streets. Approximately

15,000-20,000

people on average attend

the event. Residents can

enjoy new vendors such

as 350 Brewing, The Open

Bottle and Parmesan Station.

Food and drinks can

be purchased with cash.

There will be two stages,

one to the south and one

to the north. The concerts

will begin at noon with

The Walk-ins on the south

stage and South of Disorder

on the north stage. The

Walk-ins are a local Tinley

band made up of teachers

who play a variety of music

and the South of Disorder

play music inspired by

Jimmy Buffett.

The band Johnny

Russler, a tropical-sounding

artist, will perform at

4 p.m. on the south stage

– while Arra, a classic rock

band, plays on the north

stage. Among the crowd

there will be soloist, duos

and DJs set up to play in

between the main stage

acts.

Vicki Sanchez, special

events coordinator of Tinley

has been organizing this

event for over eight years.

She has been planning this

year’s event since January.

“It often surprises me

that people will fly in for

this event, people who use

to live in Tinley Park will

call me in February and ask

me what day it is, so they

can fly in,” Sanchez said.

There will be two areas

for children that include

bumper cars, inflatables

and mini golf. Starting at 1

p.m. people can sign up for

the bean bag tournament

that will begin at 2 p.m.

All activities will be free

except for the Odyssey

Fun World zipline ride,

which will be $8.

This year there will be a

Hawaiian-themed show at

3 p.m. which will include

a hula dance lesson and a

fire dancer. People who

come to the Block Party

are encouraged to dress up.

People can park at the

80th Avenue train station,

where a free shuttle will

take people to the event.

Parking will also be available

on the grass by the old

Central Middle school lot,

located at 18146 Oak Park

Ave.

“It’s very interesting

to me to see how people

respond to this event,

how positively people respond,”

Sanchez said. “We

try to keep it about Tinley

Park as much as possible.”

Pets or coolers are not

permitted into the event.

Streets will be blocked

off starting at 7:30 a.m.

An unknown suspect

July 14, according to

a post on the Village of

Tinley Park Public Safety

Facebook page.

At approximately 12:55

armed robbery at the store,

reportedly was armed

with a rifle and "struck" an

employee’s forehead with

the weapon, according to

Sgt. Patrick St. John. The

employee was treated on

scene by EMS personnel

and St. John said “physically,

he’s fine.”

reported stolen July 3 from

Park Forest, according to

the social media post.

“I’m pretty confident,

actually I’m very confident

What do you keep under

your bed?

I keep my shoes, lego

and Twister game under

my bed.

Who is your favorite

teacher and why?

Mrs. Durkin, my kindergarten

teacher, because

she planned fun activities

for our class. Some of the

activities were picking

pumpkin seeds and eating

them for a snack, stretching

while saying our vowels,

going to the gym and

playing red light, green

light and going outside to

run around and get some

CJB Principal Mary Iannucilli retires after decades in education

Amanda Del Buono

Freelance Reporter

In June, students closed

up their school books and

lugged home their school

supplies, as they celebrated

the last day of school.

And as the month comes

to a close, Cardinal Joseph

Bernardin Catholic School

Principal Mary Iannucilli,

72, did the same as she

embarked on the next steps

in her life.

After decades of service

and 11 years at CJB in Orland

Hills, Mary Iannucilli

retired on June 30.

“I’m looking forward to

new horizons,” she said.

“I have a grateful heart for

what my life has been so

far, and I feel that there’s

a brand new chapter to be

written, and I’m thankful

for that.”

During her time at CJB,

Iannucilli has made an

impact on the lives of her

colleagues, students and

the Village of Orland Hills

overall. In fact, the Village

recently established May

15 as Mary Iannucilli Day

and presented her with a

key to Orland Hills.

“It was certainly a surprise,”

Iannucilli said.

“[Mayor Kyle Hastings]

came into school one

morning and wanted me

to come into the broadcast

room for an announcement.

… It was just a lovely,

lovely surprise.”

CJB has been nationally

recognized as a Blue Ribbon

School twice while

under Iannucilli’s leadership

– once in 2008 and

again in 2018. Julie Budlove,

computer teacher at

CJB, attributes this success

directly to Iannucilli’s

leadership skills, noting

her compassion and dedication

to both students and

faculty.

“She’s very loyal to the

school, and she’s done

amazing things with the

school,” Budlove said.

“It’s a really big accomplishment

to win it, especially

twice. … I truly believe

that the school is so

successful because she’s

such a great leader.”

Lisa McLeish, a fifthgrade

teacher at CJB,

added, “It’s a national,

really prestigious status.

There are only a few private

schools in the country,

and it also goes to public

schools, too.”

FROM THE MOKENA MESSENGER

Residents ‘hurt’ by

Confederate group in

Fourth of July event speak

out

Concerns from residents

regarding the participation

of a pro-Confederacy

group in Mokena’s Fourth

of July festivities was top

of mind July 8, during the

Village Board of Trustees

meeting.

Mokena residents and

members of the Southwest

Suburban Activists spoke

during the public comment

portion of the meeting to

register their complaints

and ask Village officials

for answers — as well as

action. This came after

the 2nd Kentucky Cavalry

group participated in the

Village’s Independence

Day festivities.

Bill Walsh detailed his

family’s deep roots in the

military and said he was

“hurt” by the inclusion of

the pro-Confederacy group.

“I’m hurt by a number

of different things because

the history of the

Confederacy is they were

anti-black, anti-Jew and

anti-Catholic,” Walsh

said.

Later, during his comments

to the Village Board,

Mayor Frank Fleischer addressed

the Fourth of July

concerns.

Fleischer said “the Village

of Mokena has never

and will never condone

action that threatens the

safety of our residents.”

Budlove said Iannucilli

will be remembered well

beyond the honors.

“I’m going to remember

most how caring she is and

how she treated all the students,”

Budlove said. “She

just treated them all with

such respect, and she treated

them as if they were her

own children and how she

would treat someone that

she cared about. She’s so

caring.”

McLeish added, “She’s

dedicated, and she really

genuinely cares about all

of the students. Teachers

find her approachable.

Kids look up to her as a

role model.”

Iannucilli’s legacy also

will be defined by her encouragement

and mentoring

of others within the

school. For example, Iannucilli

hired Le-Ann Brochous

as an art teacher, but

encouraged and inspired

her to take on her current

role of assistant principal

at CJB.

“When the opening

came to be, she was my

biggest supporter and encouraged

me to apply, and

it’s been great working

with her,” Brochous said.

As an administrator,

Brochous has learned from

Iannucilli how to look at

the bigger picture and be a

better listener, she said.

“The person coming up

has big shoes to fill, but

I’m sure we’ll be fine,

because [Ianucilli’s] such

a good leader that people

know how to do their jobs

and know how to do it well

because she’s given them

the freedom to do their

jobs,” Brochous said.

A bittersweet feeling

was running through the

halls of CJB as students

and staff said goodbye to

Iannucilli. In fact, the staff

hosted a surprise send-off

party, themed for Iannucilli’s

favorite sports team:

the Chicago Cubs.

Although these accomplishments

are great, Iannucilli

said she just enjoyed

the opportunity to

help children and continue

learning herself.

“I think that education is

such a dynamic and organic

field that staying in it, you

constantly choose to learn

if your mind is open,” she

said. “And that’s why I like

it, because there’s always

something new to learn.”

The journey

Iannucilli always knew

she wanted a purposeful

life, dedicated to helping

children succeed.

“I wanted to feel how I

could impact children and

provide for them opportunities

for the future,” she

said. “I thought teaching is

that opportunity to be able

to provide children with

promise and hope for the

future, and working with

them and making that kind

of an impact by teaching

was why I chose teaching.”

After attending Dominican

University, then

Rosary College, and double-majoring

in English

and philosophy, Iannucilli

joined the Sinsinawa Dominican

Sisters.

“It was there that I began

to become much more interested

in teaching,” Iannucilli

said. “I did some of

that at the convent. When I

left the convent, I decided

that I was going to pursue

teaching and then ended

up taking up courses, obviously,

to get licensed in

teaching and then got a

master’s degree in counseling,

because I wanted to

help children emotionally

and socially.”

Upon finding her way

into education, Iannucilli

spent a few years in elementary

education and

quickly moved to secondary

education, where she

taught English and theology

and provided some

counseling to students.

From there, her career

flourished, working at the

Office of Catholic Schools,

reaching assistant superintendent

before assuming

her role at CJB.

Her career has made a

full circle, ending in elementary

education where

she began decades ago.

“Most of my career has

been in secondary, and I’ve

really enjoyed ending my

career with elementary, because

Cardinal Joseph Bernardin

is such a wonderful

school. We have wonderful

families [and] wonderful

children. It’s been a joy for

me to be here,” she said.

Looking ahead

Although this chapter of

Iannucilli’s book may be

coming to an end, another

is about to open.

“God has blessed me

with good health, so it’s

time to do new things,”

she said.

Looking ahead, Iannucilli

has no plans to stay

away from CJB. On the

contrary, she is expecting

to remain active at

the school in a volunteer

capacity, she said. In this

same spirit, she plans to

expand her volunteerism,

with the desire to train in

hospice work.

But all of her time will

not be dedicated to service.

Iannucilli is most excited

to travel and experience

new places. In September,

she is to embark on

her first trip to the Greek

islands.

“I’m really looking forward

to it,” she said. “I’ve

only been to Italy outside

the United States, so I’m

looking forward to experiencing

the Mediterranean

area.”

She also hopes to make

time for her other hobbies,

which have sometimes

gone neglected because of

her career. Among them,

she hopes to experience

the arts through theater

and museums. She also is

planning to spend more

time with her dog, Chance.

Her staff, on the other

hand, has high hopes for

her to attain one of her

dream jobs: a greeter at

Wrigley Field.

Despite their sadness to

see Iannucilli leave, staff

and students wish her the

best, McLeish said.

“She deserves it,”

McLeish said. “She’s put

so much into it to make

CJB feel like a big family

and a really nice place to

be, and so I just think she

really deserves this and

some time for her and time

to get to explore what she’s

interested in and travel.

We all feel that she really

deserves it.”

I

had the privilege

of attending Miles

Station No. 46 in Tinley

Park on July 10. With his

busy schedule after being

drafted by the Baltimore

Ravens in April, he still

made time to come home

for a great cause. This

ment. As of press time, Lt.

Ken Rosinski said a motive

was not yet known, but the

manner — the offender

rang the doorbell and did

not enter the home — suggests

it was targeted. The

incident occurred at 9:11

p.m. in the 9600 block of

Kris Trail.

The weapon, a 40 caliber

semi-automatic gun,

was fired through the

still-closed door, which is

glass, Rosinski noted.

Rosinski said police did

not believe there was any

danger to the public.

The victim was transported

to Christ Hospital

and reportedly was in stable

condition.

The alleged offender

was described as a black

male in his mid-20s who

may have been driving a

He came to sign a No.

81 Notre Dame jersey,

which was the number

he wore during his

career there the last few

years. The jersey will be

auctioned at the Tinley

Park Firefighters Association

2nd Annual Charity

Golf Outing to be held

July 25. You can read

more about the fundraising

event on Page 3. All

of the proceeds from the

event are to go to GiGi’s

Playhouse in Tinley Park.

The mission of GiGi’s

Playhouse, according to

its website, is “to change

the way the world views

Down syndrome and to

send a global message of

acceptance for all.”

Last year, the firefighters

association donated

Boykin has known

Dogs, owners enjoy fun in the sun at Doggy Beach Paw-ty

Laurie Fanelli

Freelance Reporter

Crestwood residents Chris Boyd and Morgan Ignacek’s

yellow lab, Moose, plays a game of fetch at the Doggy

Beach Paw-ty Saturday, July 13, at Canine Campus Dog

Park.

The Tinley Park–Park

District is known for providing

the community with

opportunities for fun in the

sun all season long with its

White Water Canyon Water

Park, summer camps,

concerts in the park and

much more.

Summer fun went to the

dogs on Saturday, July 13,

as the park district hosted

its annual Doggy Beach

Paw-ty at Canine Campus

Dog Park. The free event

featured doggy pools, bandanna

decorating, photos

and much more for fourlegged-friends

and their

two-legged companions to

enjoy.

“It's a great time,”

Recreation Supervisor

Meghan Fenlon said. “The

dog owners get along so

well. They really love to

socialize together along

with the dogs. It's a good

time for everyone who

comes out.”

Crestwood residents

Chris Boyd and Morgan

Ignacek had a great time

watching their yellow lab,

Moose, run, play and meet

new friends.

“We were excited about

the pool party aspect, to

get him to socialize and

have fun with friends.

He loves other dogs and

people so we wanted him

to experience everything,”

Ignacek said.

Boyd added that he was

also having a good time at

the event.

“It's not too hot today

and it's nice to be out in the

sun on the weekend with

no work,” Boyd said.

Tinley Park resident

Barbara Rodak and her

lemon beagle Kaja are

members of Canine Campus

and they love spending

time at the dog park.

“I like it here because I

can give her freedom,” Rodak

said. “She's a hunting

dog so she likes to run and

chase and play with other

dogs. Yesterday we spent

two hours here and she

was so tired. She likes to

play with big dogs because

she's got a strong build.

She loves it here.”

Fenlon explained that

Canine Campus is designed

to accommodate

Tinley Park resident Christine Cichon and her dog Ogden enjoy the Tinley Park-Park

District’s Doggy Beach Paw-ty. Photos by Laurie Fanelli/22nd Century Media

dogs of all breeds and

sizes.

“Typically, when we're

not having an event, we

have a small dog run, a

large dog run and one

that is kept to the side as

the grass heals. There's a

lot of play structures out

there,” Fenlon said. “It's

a great way for dogs to

come and play and get

some socialization with

each other.”

Throughout the event,

attendees had the opportunity

to win raffle prizes

including a large basket of

doggie goodies donated by

NAWS, the Mokena-based

humane society, which had

a booth, volunteers and

adoptable dogs on-site.

Connie George, a NAWS

volunteer and Resale for

Rescues resale and gift

shop owner, shared information

about adoption,

spaying and neutering as

well as fostering hospice

pets.

“We have wonderful

dogs, like the ones we have

here today that just want

a home. We want people

to think of NAWS as one

of the places to consider

when picking out a dog,”

George said, noting that

cats are also available for

adoption. “Oh my gosh,

we have so many kittens,

we have so many cats.

Unfortunately, it's been a

really heavy kitten and cat

season because a lot of the

feral cats aren't spayed or

neutered.”

The dog days of summer

won't last forever, but the

Tinley Park–Park District

has more in store for petlovers

this fall.

“Our next dog event

will be in September and

that's our fall Pup-kin

Fest. We'll have a fall photo

area, we'll have raffles,

we’ll do giveaways, we'll

do a costume contest and

all dogs get a pumpkin

when they leave,” Fenlon

said.

Canine Campus Dog

Park is located at 18200

84th Ave. More information

The Dish

Gina’s Teardrop Cafe big on serving community

Sean Hastings

Contributing Editor

Veterans eat for free

from 6:30-8 a.m. on the

last Monday of every

month at Gina’s Teardrop

Cafe in New Lenox. It has

been that way for approximately

two years.

“When my father passed

and we were at the cemetery,

everybody there

volunteers, and it just gave

me the inspiration that we

need to do something,”

owner Gina Buck said.

“It’s a big turnout. And

their stories are unreal.

It has turned into a great

event that we do.”

Gina said it is nice to

see new faces show up

for the veterans breakfast

who then continue to come

back and eventually become

regulars.

The cafe also welcomes

in an art class from Martino

Junior High School

in New Lenox to paint the

front windows three times

a year to coincide with

the different seasons and

holidays. It also does food

drives during Thanksgiving

and toy drives during

the Christmas season.

“Anytime we can chip

in, we donate,” Buck said.

“We really do try to give

back. Whenever we can

try to.”

Buck admitted that because

of the location of the

cafe — on the far west side

of town — some people

may not know it is there,

because they do not have

to drive that way. But she

loves where it is located

And the cafe will celebrate

six years in November.

When it first opened,

only the main dining area

existed, but a year-and-ahalf

into things, it outgrew

that space.

Luckily, the space next

door was occupied by

Kevin Molloy Insurance,

which moved to the other

end of the mall to help with

Teardrop’s expansion.

Gina’s Teardrop Cafe

serves both breakfast and

lunch. It also caters food

for different events, a service

of avocado and a piece of

toast ($8) — has become a

popular item, as well.

that gets a lot of orders,”

said Gina’s husband and

co-owner, Ken. “We try to

stay current.”

Gina said if they think

of something good, they

will put it up as a special,

instead of regularly updating

the menu.

“We try to stay with the

trends,” she said. “Everybody’s

Plastiak struggles in spring, stars in the summer

Note: Former Andrew

baseball star Jake Plastiak

hit a dramatic walkoff

single on July 8 to lead

the East Division to a 2-1

win in the Coastal Plain

League All-Star Game to

help highlight a year that

so far has had its ups and

downs. Here is his roller

coaster story.

JONATHAN BARLAS

Freelance Reporter

In early June, two days

after returning home from

his freshman year at Wichita

State, former Andrew

all-state third baseman

Jake Plastiak drove alone

to Wilmington, North

Carolina, answering phone

calls from junior colleges

during his 15-hour drive.

His first collegiate

summer season with the

Wilmington Sharks of the

wooden bat Coastal Plain

League came at the cost

of an expedited vacation

– spending only 36 hours

with his family in Tinley

Park.

Announcing his transfer

from Division I Wichita

State to Wabash Valley Junior

College in downstate

Mount Carmel, Plastiak

had plenty on his mind

during his solo trek: a

new team, a fresh season

and starting over at a new

school in the fall.

“I was getting a lot of

calls from junior colleges

so I was talking to advisors,

mentors, coaches you

name it,” Plastiak said. “I

was excited to get to Wilmington

to play and meet all

of the guys. I knew it was

going to be tough, only being

home for a day and a

half, so I thought of [my

family] a lot too.”

To Plastiak, summer is

not about soaking up the

sun and letting the days

go by like most people his

age. To him, every day is

another opportunity to get

better in baseball.

As a senior at Andrew,

Plastiak achieved Southwest

Suburban Red First

Team All-Conference and

Illinois High School Association

All-State honors

in 2018, marking a .430

batting average with 25

RBI and 39 runs with an

on-base plus slugging percentage

of 1.207 to help

Andrew to a 30-5-2 season

and the Bolts’ first regional

title in 10 years.

His commitment to

Wichita State last summer

was met with a tougher

choice than he originally

thought.

Plastiak, to his own surprise,

was drafted 831st

overall in the 2018 MLB

Draft by the San Diego Padres

in the 28th round.

“I didn’t know it was

going to happen,” he said.

He was among other

notable 28th round picks

in former Texas A&M

quarterback and Heisman

trophy winner Johnny

Manziel and Los Angeles

Dodgers manager Dave

Roberts.

Struggles and changes in

Wichita

Plastiak ultimately decided

against the pros, saying

that Wichita was where

he was supposed to be at

that time. But after his

freshman season, in which

he struggled at the plate

hitting .209 in 18 games,

he was faced with another

choice that would reshape

the landscape of his baseball

career. Head coach

Todd Butler was fired in

May and Eric Wedge took

over.

“There’s going to be an

all-new coaching staff at

Wichita State,” he said.

“Sophomore year is a really

big year for baseball

players and I wanted to be

able to pick my coaches.

I didn’t know who the

coaches were going to

be and I felt the junior

college route was better

for me. It’s a lot closer

to home, so I’ll only be

about four hours away,

which is nice.”

Minutes after Plastiak

announced the transfer

news via Twitter June 15,

there was nothing but support

from his family leading

up to his decision.

“They really thought junior

college was the best

route for me too,” he said.

“They could come see me

play and I could come

home for holidays...I’m

fortunate enough to be

able to play at one of the

best junior colleges in the

country. I’ve heard nothing

but great things about

Wabash Valley and I can’t

wait to get down there.”

The Wabash Valley Warriors

marked a 55-4 overall

record in 2019, were undefeated

in conference play

at 27-0 and tout the current

NJCAA Player of the Year

in sophomore infielder

Cael Baker.

Another shot at the pros

Transferring schools

does not mean that he is

taking his eye off the ball.

In fact, Plastiak’s plan fuels

his drive to chase his

dream, even if it takes

him back to where he has

started.

“I’ll be draft-eligible

as a sophomore after this

coming year and when

that opportunity [to be

drafted] comes up again,

where I have the chance

to be drafted higher, I’ll

triple in a game last year, has had an up-and-down 2019 so far but is hitting well in a

collegiate summer league. JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

be excited to start my professional

career,” Plastiak

said. “But if that doesn’t

work out, I’d be looking

for another Division I program

to go to that following

year.”

Meanwhile, before he

heads to Wabash Valley,

Plastiak is a Shark that

does not seem to bite at

every borderline breaking

ball.

Plastiak, according to

team statistics, is doing

what he does best: rake.

As of July 9 – midway

through Coastal League

play – he led Wilmington

in batting average (.303),

RBI (21), home runs (7)

and was second with nine

stolen bases.

“He has torn the cover

off the ball,” Sharks manager

Tyler Jackson told

Wilmington StarNews Online.

“I’m hoping he kind

of keeps it going and everyone

else gets to where

he is.”

‘Comfortable being

uncomfortable’

Seemingly thriving everywhere

he’s played,

Plastiak does not shy away

from the pressure of high

expectations.

“Being a Cubs fan, one

of the things Joe Maddon

talks about is that pressure

is a good thing. It means

you’ve done good things

in the past and people expect

you to do more good

things,” Plastiak said. “I

think with expectations...I

don’t really worry about

everyone else’s, I just

worry about mine. I try

to stay narrow-minded

towards my goals. If you

didn’t have pressure on

you, you wouldn’t be a

good player.

“I’ve learned to be comfortable

being uncomfortable.

I go out every single

day with a goal to not only

get better, but to dominate.

My confidence grows every

single day, I play hard

and I just want to get better

every day I go out there.”

Jeff Vorva

Sports Editor

I

have often told people

that in this business no

two days are the same.

You never know what

you might see. A thrilling

game-ending play? A

controversial play that has

fans up in arms? Doing an

Athlete of the Week interview

and having an athlete

tell you that she survived

cancer? (For those who

missed issues of the

paper in recent weeks,

Andrew basketball player

Abby Skarbek dropped

that news on me during

a seemingly routine

interview.)

The job also sends you

to different places. Baseball

diamonds. Football

fields. Gyms. Tracks.

But I darn well knew

that an assignment on

June 28 was not going to

be routine.

White Sox legend Bill

Melton was to speak at

the Evergreen Senior

Living facility in Orland

Park to talk a little

baseball with some of the

residents.

I cannot recall ever

going to a senior center

for a sports story. I have

been there back in the day

for parents and grandparents

back when they

were known as “old-folks

homes.” I’m not far away

from old-folk status -

maybe 20 or 30 years - so

I will stay away from that

phrase.

I have also been to

senior facilities for news

stories over the years.

But for a sports story?

That’s a new one on me,

Let’s go!

Melton told stories

about his days of growing

up in California and playing

with the White Sox.

Nick Zizzo, a 92-yearold

Tinley Park resident,

decided he wanted the

floor.

Zizzo, just three days

away from moving into

the facility, visited his future

home the day Beltin’

Melton gave his speech.

Zizzo interrupted a part

of Melton’s speech by

shouting “The White Sox

are going to win tonight!”

He repeated it a few times.

He proved to be right.

The Sox went on to

beat American League

Central-leading Minnesota,

6-4, hours later.

What was golden about

that prediction is that Sox

starting pitcher Ross Detwiler

won his first major

league game in close to

three years. Also, the Sox

had not beaten the Twins

since 2018 and were outscored

26-5 in three losses

White Sox legend Bill Melton shakes hands with 92-year-old Nick Zizzo, a former

Tinley Park resident, on June 28. JEFF VORVA/22ND CENTURY MEDIA

to them this season.

The Sox should not

have won that game. The

smart money was on the

Twins.

Well, the smarter

money was on Zizzo.

No matter if it was a

hunch, great knowledge or

just luck, Zizzo nailed it.

Zizzo had a few more

comments about the state

of the Sox when Melton

opened the floor for questions

and the former Sox

third baseman was having

so much fun with the

give-and-take that he left

his post in the front of

the room to shake Zizzo’s

hand toward the back of

the room.

Melton, who led the

American League in

home runs in 1971 (the

first Sox player to ever

do that), visited the

Evergreen facility to talk

with some of the residents

about baseball in

a program called Major

League Memories, sponsored

by the Alzheimer’s

Association Illinois

Chapter.

“I’m one of you!” the

73-year-old told the audience.

Melton is still keeping

his profile high with

television analyst work

before and after White

Sox games.

He showed some old

White Sox uniform

designs to the Evergreen

residents and the group

sang “Take Me Out to the

Ball Game.”

I don’t know why I got

such a kick out the Zizzo-

Melton combo, but I did.

No two days are ever

the same with this job.

And I don’t know if I

will ever have another

day like that.

LISTEN UP

“I’ll be draft-eligible as a sophomore after this coming year and when

that opportunity comes up again, where I have the chance to be drafted

higher, I’ll be excited to start my professional career.”
