I found out this morning that our very own TRHit, Tom Rizzi, passed away. He has made an impact on a great deal of lives and I'd venture to guess that everyone that has crossed paths with him on the diamond, off the diamond, and on the web remembers him. Countless members of HSBBWeb have received Tom's help in finding the right college and the right way to get seen by the right schools on the recruiting trail. I don't want to go on too long because I cannot begin to say what he has meant to many of us.
Tom realized, by reading some things I had posted on HSBBWeb (and in our chat room), that he was in a position to help me get noticed by the right schools. He worked with my family to make that happen and at the time, all I knew was that I had an extremely positive experience with College Select that I would never forget. In the long term, Tom was instrumental in pointing me towards and getting me noticed by the perfect school for me. After injury, baseball was out of the picture but thanks in part to Tom's guidance I was already at a place where I could realize my dreams.
I'm sure many others can share stories of Tom's unmistakable posting style, his unmatched experience and sage advice, and his kind heart. Please think about Tom and his family today.
