    Todd was a great friend of mine and I cannot believe he is gone. Todd loved baseball and he also loved his family and friends. I have too many memories to quote just one but most of all I remember many nights sitting with Todd and his son Thaddeus watching baseball on t.v and sucking down some cold ones and laughing the whole time, dammit Todd was such a character. I love you man!

    wow, where does time slip off to?
    Todd and I were neighbors and friends. I knew his Wife and sons although they were just young guys the last time they came out to visit their dad.
    Todd and I shared a common love..."The great American Past time"
    Never made it to the show like he did, but he sure shared his stories with me.Thank you Todd..I will never forget the time when Tommy Lasorda called my house and asked t speak to you...You wanted so much to get back into the show that you left my number as a back up....
    I could go on for hours...days...but it will just have to wait till I see you again friend...
    Always your friend and neighbor, Lloyd Dunkin

    I met Todd when he was signing cards at baseball card shows in Colton. My friend put on the small shows and Todd would come over and sign cards and pictures all day long. He would wear his Oriole uniform, bring his bat, and teach and talk baseball to the kids all day long. He was a great person to know and he was great with the kids. I learned of his passing from a mutual friend. I was searching for him to him to coach my grandson in hitting. He will forever be in our thoughts. Mike Foster

    In 1996 I was a 21 year old living in southern California when I ran into Todd on a golf course in Simi Valley. We were both out there alone so we played our round together. I was too young to know anything about his career but he was great to me and offered to autograph a few of his cards that he had in his car. I just came across those cards so I looked him up and learned of his untimely passing. Very sorry to hear of this. I only got to spend a few hours with him as I never saw him again after that day. All my best to his family and friends.

    I was a batboy for Nuevo Laredo Tecolotes in the Detroit Mexican League at Clark Park. The opposing team's best hitter was up when a shot off his bat sounded, I lost sight of the ball it was hit so hard......I turned towards 3b and there was Todd full extent to his left in mid air! Out!!! My Dad, Stanley & Bill jogged by me towards the bench and pointed to 3b........."Did You See That?!?!?"

    To this day whenever I play ball......I play with the passion Todd showed.
