City Council approves funding to design a Devir Park makeover By Barbara Taormina R esidents praised Devir Park as a great natural asset and a vital community hub during the public comment segment of this week’s City Council meeting. Councillors agreed and voted to approve the Community Preservation Committee’s recommendation to spend $50,000 of Community Preservation Act (CPA) funding to begin planning and designing a major capital improvement project for the Park. “Devir Park is Malden’s largest park at 8.2 acres,” wrote Jenelle DeVits in comments submitted to the council. “It’s a tremendous natural grass and green space with tremendous old shade trees and a long history of providing many of Malden’s children with recreational and youth sports activities.” DeVits spearheaded the Devir Park Revitalization Project with the help of city councillors and the support of city department heads. In addition to the CPA funding, Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon will contribute $10,000 of his ward’s development mitigation money to the project. “Devir Park is twice as large as any park in the city, and it’s been a long time since it was revitalized,” said Condon, who thanked DeVits, Bob McCarthy and the neighbors who turned out for last summer’s community meeting to share ideas about improving the park. The CPA funds will pay for the creation of a base plan and design from aerial photos and fi eld surveys. That work will be used to develop a master capital and design plan that will include drawings for possible reconfi guration of parts of the park as well as construction costs and estimates. The CPA money will also cover the costs of a design consultant to help develop alternative ideas for the park and for a community meeting to gather feedback on proposed imDEVIR PARK | SEE PAGE 4 * Mulching * Spring Clean-ups * Trimming & Maintenance NOW BOOKING NEW CUSTOMERS!

Christenson said a city budget drafted back in February was targeted towards covering all expenses with revenues without dipping into city reserves, a goal that has eluded the city for years. “But then the health care crisis known as COVID-19 hit and it has been all downhill ever since. Meals, excise, and parking revenue are all down and some by double digits. We are anticipating a 15-20 percent reduction in local aid from the state who is dealing with the loss of an estimated $5-6 billion dollars in revenue,” wrote Christenson. Christenson and his budget team, which includes Special Assistant to the Mayor Maria Luise, Controller Chuck Ranaghan, Human Resources Director Anthony Chiccuarelli and Parking Department Director Ron Hogan, have charE Friday, May 22, 2020 City faces budget challenges for 2021 Mayor Gary Christenson acterized the budget proposal as “a solid starting point to deal with the pain that is coming.” The budget proposal includes $180.1 million in spending and $4.1 million set aside to cover an anticipated 15 percent cut in general local aid and a $2.1 decrease in Chapter 70 state funding for public schools. Also built into the proposal is a wage freeze for City Hall staff , public works employees, library staff , crossing guards and parking enforcement offi cers.

There are many things outside our control – we went from an unemployment rate of below 3% to a rate of 24% in a matter of months. So, even if you are not in an active job search, circumstances arise when we may be looking for new employment. Here are a few tips to remember and be ready for whatever career-related challenges may occur: Control. You can only control what you can control. You can’t control the economy, pandemics, or whether the company you are working in survives. These things are out of your control so it does no good to dwell on them. Invest. Start investing in yourself. Keep your skills sharp, take free webinars, courses, and training. If there is something you are weak in, strive to get better. Did you know that there are many opportunities for free classes – yes, free – you can take? Check out these websites to get you started: MOOCS (www. mooc.org), Edx Classes (www. GIANNELLI edx.org); and for those looking for technical training there are Microsoft training tutorials (www.support.officecom). Not sure what class to take? Start a search at www.classcentral.com. Network. Now’s the time to take networking seriously and be strategic. Don’t just join LinkedIn, use it as the great networking tool that it is. Tailor Everything. Customize your resume, job applications, and cover letter – remember one size doesn’t fit all. Each resume and cover letter should be tailored to the specific position, and make sure you use keywords from the job description in each. Don’t Burn Bridges. Never bad-mouth a previous employer or manager. You never know when you might need a reference or a networking connection. Look for the silver lining. I’m a big believer that you need to look for opportunities in the challenges. My mantra is “What opportunity could this be?” Confidence. Have confidence in yourself. If you don’t believe in yourself, who will? Basic Needs. You may have to take a less than perfect shortterm job. Remember Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, and take care of your basic needs first. LinkedIn. Update your LinkedIn profile. There are many articles written on how to make your LinkedIn profile stand out to recruiters. A quick Google search will lead you to insight from LinkedIn experts. Clean Up. Clean up your social media. The majority of recruiters report that they check out a person’s social media profile (i.e., LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter) before reaching out to a potential candidate. If there are things in your social media you would rather not have a recruiter see, delete it. Make sure your social media accounts are private and start deleting old potentially embarrassing posts. These are challenging times for us all but I believe if you start looking at ways to make the best of the situation, you’ll come out ahead in the “new normal.” Remember success is a journey, not a destination. —Elizabeth Hart is the Founder & Executive Director of Tailored for Success, Inc.

Last Wednesday, May 13, Sica held a party in the parking lot of Townline Luxury Lanes with a cake, DJ and 50 or so guests who were invited to celebrate her daughter’s 21st birthday. Police responded to reports of a crowd that exceeded the state’s restriction on gatherings of more than 10 people and guests who were mingling and failing to follow social distancing guidelines. After reminding people about the importance of social distancing, police broke up the party. No tickets or fi nes were issued.

On Friday, Sica posted an apology and an explanation. “Certainly, it wasn’t my intent to send a bad message,” she wrote. “I take this pandemic seriously and like all of you can’t wait for us to be past it. But fi rst and foremost, I’m a mother – a mother who is trying her best to fi nd the right balance during a diffi cult time. If I got it wrong, I’ll own it. Like anyone with kids, I’d move mountains for them, and I was simply trying to fi nd some semi normalcy for my 21-yearold daughter.” This past Monday, MaldenArts Vice President Candace Julyan launched an online petition calling on Sica to resign as City Council president.

Sica’s supporters acknowledged that hosting the party was a poor and irresponsible decision but cited her years of service to Ward 8 and her commitment to the city. Her critics called her apology insincere and said her past work for the Malden is irrelevant. What matters is that she put people at risk of becoming infected with the coronavirus. along the Fellsway corridor, and resurfaced basketball courts with updated lighting, backboards and nets, as well as resurfaced tennis courts. There is also a proposal to remove the tennis court closest to the playground to make way for a toddler splash pad surrounded by picnic tables and benches. A small adult fitness area with outdoor equipment has also been proposed for the grassy area behind Bruce Field outfi eld. Solar lighting for the middle walkway corridor, the planting and maintenance of shade trees, and plaques and signs that celebrate the park’s history, and particularly its history of semipro baseball, are also included in future design plans. Councillors said the DeSeveral people who weighed into the debate suggested calls for Sica’s resignation were politically motivated by some who would prefer to see a more progressive member of the council serve as president. Other people posted genuine concerns about potential health risks to the community. Over time, the lengthy thread on the Malden MA politics Facebook page became repetitive and shrill and was fi nally cut off . None of the other city councillors have commented on Sica’s story, and Sica, who typically confronts controversies head on, made no mention of it at this week’s council meeting. However, she did off er her overall perspective of the past week as part of her apology. “While it’s disappointing to see someone motivated to embarrass me over this, I guess if I can fi nish my political career with this being the worst someone can say about me, I’ve probably done ok,” she wrote. vir Park Revitalization Project is exactly the type of project the CPA is meant to support. And they also had kind words for DeVits, who was dubbed Citizen Devits by Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora because she stepped up to plan and promote the project as individual citizen. “She did a fantastic job,” said Spadafora. “She really ran with the project.” Although residents and city councillors can be ward-centric, particularly when it comes to parks and playing fields, Ward 6 Councillor David Camell suggested Devir Park is a place for all of Malden. “Everyone across the city enjoys Devir Park as a place we all prize and come together as a community,” he said.

The grant is drawn from the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund (CFF), a state program that provides capital and planning grants to nonprofits, colleges and municipalities that own or operate facilities primarily focused on the arts, humanities and sciences. CFF awards invest in the acquisition, design, repair, renovation, expansion and construction of nonprofit and municipal cultural facilities. “Once again, I am pleased to announce that the City of Malden has received a grant from a state funded program,” said Donato. “The improvements to this historical site will remain a treasure to Malden residents for future generations.” “Libraries serve a critical role in our daily life, offering resources that engage and enhance the citizenry of our communities,” said Lipper-Garabedian. “This grant award is deserved recognition of the value of the Malden Public Library and the importance of its preservation.” “I am excited that Malden We Now Offer For Your Eating Pleasure “UBER EATS” Convenient Delivery Service Bianchi’s Pizza and Renzo’s Full Menu To Go Open for Takeout for Bianchi’s Pizza and Renzo’s Food 381 Revere Beach Blvd., Revere 781-284-5600 J& • Reliable Mowing Service • Spring & Fall Cleanups • Mulch & Edging • Sod or Seed Lawns • Shrub Planting & Trimming • Water & Sewer Repairs Joe Pierotti, Jr. Public Library was able to secure funding through the Massachusetts Cultural Facilities Fund for renovations to the Converse Memorial Building,” said Ultrino. “This award will ensure that the historic art collection at the Converse Memorial Building will BUDGET | FROM PAGE 1 the budget, “Asks many employees to give a little so that a few don’t have to give a lot.” The mayor’s budget calls for moderate increases for some city departments and cuts for others.

They are popular tourist destinations: More than six million people visited these sites in the past year, one-third from out of state.

Christenson stressed that the 2021 budget proposal does not call for any new fees or taxes above what state law allows. Nor does it require any reduction in city services. “This budget is not what any of us hoped for, but it’s also not one that most would expect based on the massive cuts from the state and revenue reductions we are currently facing,” said Christenson. The City Council referred the budget proposal to the Finance Committee for review. Finance Committee Chairman David Camell asked city councillors to focus on areas of the budget that will see the most significant impacts. Stay Golden, Tornado Cheerleaders!

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 22, 2020 Fateful Decision: Michael Jordan’s decision to try pro baseball may have had an effect on the career of Malden’s Cappuccio: They even said it on Sports Center (Following is Part Two of two-part series telling the story of how a decision by the greatest player in NBA history, Michael Jordan, may very well have had an effect on the professional baseball fate of Malden High School’s greatest athlete, Carmine Cappuccio.) By Steve Freker I t was February 7, 1994, and big news in Chicago that day was how the Bulls had heated up in a hurry, winning 21-of-24 games, jumping to fourth place in the NBA’s Eastern Conference standings. The Atlanta Hawks, led by Dominique Wilkins and former Boston College star John Bagley and the Patrick Ewing-fueled New York Knicks, were 1-2 in the East at the time. Much was being made of the Bulls’ hot streak as the threetime defending NBA champs were apparently getting on just fine without the services of the legendary Michael Jordan, who had shocked the world three months and a day earlier, when he announced his retirement. Before that day was out, however, it would be the man who many call the greatest player in NBA history that would make the earth move once again. In a press release out of another of Chicago professional sports team’s office, it was announced that Jordan had signed a minor league contract with the baseball White Sox. At the time, both the Bulls and the White Sox were owned by sports conglomerate builder Jerry Reinsdorff. Check that Richter scale, folks, here was another seismic announcement with the most recognizable athlete in the world, front and center. Though not unheard of, after all, Bo “Knows Everything” Jackson was on the White Sox roster at the time, and Deion “Primetime” Sanders was playing football for the two Atlanta franchises, football Falcons and baseball Braves, at the time. But this was different. This was Michael Jordan. Plus, he wasn’t talking about playing two sports, just the one: baseball. Think LeBron James retiring and going to the NFL Think LeBron James retiring from the NBA and then announcing he would be strapping on a football helmet for the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams. Or Mike Trout putting away his bat and glove and telling the world he would next be seen skating in the NHL for the Anaheim Mighty Ducks. Even though these statements today would be mind-boggling and seem outlandish, to say the least, multiply all that times 100. It was Michael Jordan saying and doing this. Of course, a common reaction to all this was “This isn’t real...it’s all just a hoax, wait and see.” Everyone waited, then they saw Jordan suited up at White Sox spring training in Sarasota, Fla., a couple of weeks later. He dressed in the same locker room with Bo Jackson and the rest of the major leaguers and even played in a game against the Cleveland Indians against a hot prospect who simply pounded the ball to gaps with authority, when he wasn’t hitting it over the fence. That guy, also an outfielder, STATS CARD: Here is a look at Carmine Cappuccio’s professional baseball stats through the years, on the back of his Winnipeg Goldeyes card.

The Indian prospect? Mr. Manny Ramirez, who would go on to hit 555 homers and help bring the Red Sox two World Series titles in the following decade. Up-and-coming Malden prospect, Cappuccio There were also a trio of more fine, up-and-coming young outfielders on the other side of the White Sox Sarasota spring training complex toiling away who also were not illuminated in the spotlight which shone brightly on Michael Jordan that spring. The threesome included two future major leaguers and a Malden, Mass., native who had done what most every professional athlete does on their way up the ladder: rip it up and own every level of play. Malden’s Carmine Cappuccio had just come off his best professional baseball season to date, joining his fellow outfield prospects Mike Cameron and Jimmy Hurst in leading the South Bend (Indiana) White Sox to a Midwest League championship. Cappuccio hit .305, his highest average in his pro career, with four homers and 52 RBIs in 101 games in 1993 for South Bend. He was among the team leaders in extra base hits (26 doubles, six triples) and led all everyday players in OPS (.813). Cappuccio was key man in a strong outfield contingent which included the likes of Cameron and Hurst, who hit 20 home runs that season. The 1994 season looked like it could be a big one as to moving up the Chicago White Sox baseball ladder, for all three prospects. Who knows? maybe one, two or perhaps all of the three might get a shot at a roster spot at the Double-A level, which that year was the Birmingham (Alabama) Barons. Cappuccio was in his third year of professional baseball, Cameron and Hurst in their fourth. All three had legitimate consideration at a Double-A roster spot. Those in the know tell of the value of that Double-A year. “It’s a blink away from the big leagues, for most organizations. Double-A ball is where teams fine-tune and ready their players for the majors,” a seasoned Atlanta Braves scout named John Stewart told me a few years after that 1993 season when he was scouting another Malden High-bred future pro, Kevin McGlinchy. McGlinchy later became Malden’s second pro of the 1990s when he was picked in the fifth round by the Braves in the 1995 MLB draft. Double-A: a blink away from the big leagues A blink away. So that Double-A spot is pretty valuable real estate when it comes to a professional baseball career, especially if you just turned 24 years old a week before Jordan’s big news announcement, as Cappuccio had done. Still another shoe dropped about a week and a half before spring training broke in March 1994 when it was announced that the most famous minor league baseball player in the world, Michael Jordan, would be FATEFUL DECISION | SEE PAGE 12 Spring!

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 22, 2020 Page 9 “Malden: Today, Tomorrow and Yesterday”... Edgeworth On My Mind By Peter F. Levine R obert DiGiovanni grew up on the streets of Edgeworth long before I did, walking in the exact same footsteps a decade or so earlier. I had no idea who came before me. It was just “our” time. Robert has been kind enough to remind me that, no Peter, there were many before you. Here he is talking about the bandstand that once stood in the middle of Devir Park, a place where we spent many nights during an (at times) misspent youth. Robert speaks: “I remember the men’s toilet which was on the left side of the building if you were standing in front, and if I’m not mistaken, had a flat roof in the 1950s to around 1960s and had a short iron railing around the square top that it formed. I never remember a slanted roof on that part of the bandstand. I assume they added it, maybe because balls, especially softball, could land up there, and kids or people would climb up to get them, so maybe why they put the slanted roof on it? The photo I recently saw on FaceThis is Devir Park circa late 1940s/early 1950s in a picture taken from the back of the bandstand. In the background are Craddock Park (Bruce Field) and veterans housing – now home to the Irish American Club. (Photo Courtesy of Beth Sampson) book was maybe photo taken after 1960 [the picture was indeed taken in 1977]. If that is a fence around the Little League park, upper-left-hand corner of photo, then it was after 1960, when they renamed it ‘Bruce Field.’” Thanks for the memories, Robert. Robert DiGiovanni is a stonecold Edgeworth guy. Though we have never met, and he is a few years older, I have felt I’ve known him my whole life. I’ve sat and listened in the past as Dom Fermano spoke about Johnny Manzi. Heck of a guy so the story goes! Take it away, Robert: “Who remembers ‘Johnnie’ Manzi? John ‘Johnnie’ Manzi, one of Edgeworth’s greatest athletes, a few years older than myself. I was lucky the older boys like ‘Johnnie’ would let me play in their pickup baseball games at Devir Park. I learned to love the game. At first just trying to get ‘Johnnie’ out just once was a victory for us kids. His blazing speed was something to behold. You would throw the ball to first base and we would already be rounding second base. You would toss the ball to third base, and before it got there, he was already at home plate. I learned to love the game playing those pickup games with Johnnie. He was one of the fastest runners I had ever played with. Johnnie was a phenomenal football player also for Malden High and an incredibly talented baseball player. In his last year playing for the ‘ole’ Blue and Gold Football team and heading for a record touchdown season, when after scoring one, with a number of games still to be played, he accidentally ran through the 2X4 fence that sectioned off the red zone area from the huge gas tanks right behind the end zone and was seriously hurt! His season, unfortunately, was prematurely over, and his chances for a record touchdown season came to an end, He was a wonderful guy, and I was shocked years ago when I heard he died sadly rather young! But I never could forget his extraordinary athletic talents. He was one of my favorite heroes as a youngster, when I took notice that he had hit over 23 home runs in the Malden National Little League for the Dodgers, the first Little League in Malden. Not too many kids that were not the size of adults ever hit that many, and although Johnnie was well built, he was not oversized... as some Little League players were that hit that many home runs! He was just spectacular! Long live the memory of John Manzi – a great kid, athlete, and an exceedingly kind man, who helped many others in his life, I’ve learned, as the years went by! RIP John Johnnie Manzi, I will never forget your talent and all the ways you taught me, by your own spectacular athletic talents. I hope others who read this will remember this Edgeworth born man and athletic star of the 1950s!” Old friend David Stone checked in with Malden Musings recently: “How are you my friend in these crazy days.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 22, 2020 Page 11 Bread of Life steps up to the challenge of COVID-19 By Barbara Taormina B read of Life will mark its 40th anniversary in Malden this year. For the past four decades, the nondenominational faith-based organization has been running a food pantry and off ering dinner and hospitality to individuals and families in need through an evening meals program. Over the years, Bread of Life has been shuffl ed around to diff erent church basements and rec halls in old city buildings. Volunteers have even served meals from the back of a truck when no other space was available. “We’ve been very resilient about moving around,” said Bread of Life Development Director Patty Kelly. “We just keep rolling along.” That ability to adapt and use all available resources to get the job done no doubt came in handy over the past several months as Bread of Life faced a spike in the number of people reaching out for help as a result of the COVID-19 health crisis. “Demand has more than doubled,” said Bread of Life Executive Director Gabriella Snyder Stelmack. “We’re working on getting more food and a bigger truck.” Back in March, Bread of Life’s food pantry at 45 Eastern Ave. was providing groceries for about 80 households. By the end of April, the organization was stocking kitchen shelves A volunteer shows off one of a batch of chocolate cakes donated by Hoff ’s Bakery for Bread of Life’s evening meal program. for 185 households. Stelmack said that up to 80 percent of the people now coming to the food pantry are new to Bread of Life and the idea of reaching out to a food pantry for help. “We’ve completely jettisoned all registration procedures,” said Stelmack. “If you’re in need and you come here, we will serve you.” Bread of Life’s evening meal program has temporarily changed to a grab-and-go boxed meal program at the First Baptist Church. Back in March, an average of about 70 people would come for dinner. Now, roughly 120 people are stopping every night to pick up a meal. “Anyone is welcome,” said Kelly. “You come through and get a meal and off you go.” Bread of Life has also expanded its delivery program and is now dropping off hundreds of boxes of groceries each month to people who are self-isolating, elderly or disabled. “The boxes are packed by volunteers and delivered by volunteers,” said Stelmack. Bread of Life has always depended on volunteer power to run its diff erent programs. But when the coronavirus shut everything down in the middle of March, people who volunteered with groups organized by churches, civic organizations and businesses were also shut down. “We were scrambling for a while, but eventually people who were temporarily laid off started to show up to help,” said Stelmack. “The reEamonn and Linda Sheehan donate 25 meals from Boston’s Chart House Restaurant for Bread of Life’s evening meal program. sponse has been tremendous.” Stelmack also said that people seem more confident about their ability to protect their health with face masks, hand sanitizers and social distancing. “Everybody has concerns but overriding that is the concern for people who are the most vulnerable and the hardest hit by COVID-19,” she said. “The frontline staff has been incredible,” added Kelly, “We keep adding new programs and they keep going.” Malden and the surrounding communities are also coming through with all types of much-needed and much-appreciated donations. Stelmack said some people will phone in a substantial takeout order from a local restaurant and have it delivered to Bread of Life. “A woman just donated meals from the Dockside restaurant,” said Stelmack. “We packaged them up and handed them out.” Other restaurants just send food over. Pisa Pizza is known for delivering stacks of pizzas, and Townline Luxury Lanes recently reached out with trays and trays of food. “Restaurants are struggling but despite that they are still cooking meals and donating,” said Kelly. Individual residents are also coming through with donations of home-cooked meals.

WITNESS, Hon. Maureen H. Monks, First Justice of this Court. Date: May 15, 2020 TARA E. DeCRISTOFARO REGISTER OF PROBATE May 22, 2020 starting his professional baseball career with the Birmingham Barons, at the Double-A level. You heard that correctly. Here was a man who had last played baseball 13 years previously, at Laney High in Wilmington, N.C. Two games into his senior year baseball season at Laney, he was dismissed from the team because he had missed time on the baseball diamond due to playing in a basketball tournament. Despite his basically nonexistent baseball resume, the 31-yearold Jordan was getting a coveted and highly-valued outfi elder roster spot in one of the top Double-A professional baseball leagues in the nation. As for the aforementioned trio of Cappuccio, Cameron and Hurst? No Double-A for them. Not even a sniff in 1994, not with the Michael Jordan Show headed to Birmingham and the Barons. The promising trio of upand-comers were assigned to the Prince William Cannons in Woodbridge, Virginia, an Advanced (Long Season) Single-A White Sox franchise. It was not a step down so much as it was a “stay in place” assignment. Could Cappuccio, Cameron or Hurst have used that possible promotion to Double-A Birmingham as a stepping stone to the bigger and better futures? Of course they could have used it. Cameron actually did get a big league call-up the next season. He was playing for Birmingham in 1995, along with Cappuccio and Hurst, but he got sent back down after an unproductive, 22-game stint. Maybe if he had played with Birmingham that extra year, the added experience would have helped him to stick in the “bigs.” Same for Hurst. His value was high enough after the 1994 season in Birmingham that he was a decent piece in a trade to the Detroit Tigers in the 1995 off season. He bounced back and forth for a couple of seasons between the majors and the minors, never gaining a niche at the highest. Would that 1994 season at Double-A have made a diff erence? Sure it would. They even said on ESPN’s Sports Center As for Cappuccio? You bet it would have made a diff erence. They even said it on ESPN’s Sports Center! That very night of the news about Jordan, on Sports Center, I recall, vividly, anchorman Dan Patrick stating, “It’s great that Michael Jordan wants to try and play professional baseball. But who is the player that’s going to be held back an extra year in the minors because of this? “Maybe it’s Carmine Cappuccio from Malden, Mass. who led the South Bend White Sox in hitting last year? Or one of the other outfielders from that team like Jimmy Hurst or Mike Cameron?” Patrick said on national television. “Who knows? What we do know is that one of these White Sox prospects is going to miss experience at a higher level because of Michael Jordan.” So there, Dan Patrick said so. I remember sitting on my couch on Jacob Street that night, thinking the same exact thing. “Yeah, Michael Jordan a great basketball player and all that, but what’s up with him playing baseball? He’s 31 years old and there’s no way he intends on making this a longterm thing. “He’s playing outfi eld? That’s what Carmine plays. I hope this really does not hurt his chances,” I thought. Then, lo and behold, MJ goes to Double-A Birmingham and the other three outfi elders are off to Virginia with the Cannons. What followed in the 1994 season appears to be further validation of some suspect decision-making in the White Sox organization. Only success for Birmingham was at ticket booth The only success Birmingham had that 1994 season was in the ticket booth. They set an attendance record for the franchise that was never broken as the traveling carnival atmosphere Jordan brought to the team fi lled the stands all year. Truth be told, Jordan was far from great and shy of good. But he was not awful. He hit .203 for the season, starting nearly every night for manager Terry Francona (that guy again! future Red Sox icon). He did drive in 51 runs in 127 games and hit three home runs. He walked 51 times, nearly leading the team in that department, when the “Moneyball” era was not even a thought at the time. He did lead the team in strikeouts and was a below average fi elder, but stole 30 bases, too. Sports Illustrated bashed him with a cover story screaming “Bag it, Michael!” But even that writer later retracted part of his vitriol. For someone whose resume only went up to varsity baseball in his junior year of high school and then a 13-year layoff , it was actually pretty commendable MJ could even get up against 90-mph-plus fastballs. Of course, after he fashioned a remarkable, to say the least, 27game hitting streak in the early part of the season, the entire rest of the opposing pitchers in the Southern League went all “Not on My Watch” and threw the NBA’s greatest player nothing but the fi rst number of his Bulls’ jersey. Yup. Nothing but deuces. Ever. That’s probably why he walked so many times thereafter. Can’t hit what you can’t see. They threw him so many curFATEFUL DECISION | SEE PAGE 15 ~ Home of the Week ~ SAUGUS...Well maintained Family Colonial offers 8 rms., 4 bdrms., 1.5 baths, updated kit. w/granite counters, built-in seating and desk area and atrium doors to beautiful covered deck, spac. dining rm. w/fireplace, 1st fl. den w/2nd fireplace, convenient 1st fl. laundry, newer pergo flooring, security system, 1 car gar. updated gas heat and electric, front farmer’s porch, fenced yrd. w/pavers patio, fire pit and jacuzzi, side street location in desirable Lynnhurst location.

I enjoy just reading the names of people you mention, and I know them or a family member. It definitely rattles the memory bank. “When this is pandemic loosens up this summer, please come visit me in Marblehead. I would like to show you the local haunts. Maybe have a Pabst or three. My new hometown for 14 years now. It is a little Mayberry R.F.D. if you know what I mean. Most people are great, and I have made many friends. I miss playing hoops so much in my life since I retired now 8 years because of knee surgery. I have lived in NYC and Hawaii for extended periods in my life and I always sought out basketball as a refuge to my sanity. Besides the healthy aspect of the physical workout, most of my social life was around hoops. When I moved back from Hawaii after living there for seven years, I rented a gym in Wakefield and started my own games. It was like I never left and pulled my old and new friends from Malden & the Y to play. When I look back, it was basketball that did this. I did a short stint on Wall Street in the 80’s. What did I do? Started playing hoops with the guys for other firms. Bingo! Still to this day they are my friends for life. Same thing in Hawaii. I joined the Honolulu YMCA and played with all the local guys. By the way, a lot of them were Native Hawaiians and not that tall so I felt big on the court. Believe it or not, I played volleyball in HI which also built up that camaraderie. When I graduated Malden High School, I went to Northeastern and commuted to school every day. I still went to the Y and played hoops. That was special. A mixture of blue collar and college that collided. I did not realize it, but it shaped me in a way that keeps you grounded and real.

Covid-19 took advantage of Jack’s weakened condition. Thirty or so years ago, Jack was invincible. Back in the day he would have swallowed the virus, washed it down with a case of Bud and spit it out mad preaching “Mother” Mahalia’s “In the Upper Room!” Loved this tribute to Jack from loyal congregation member Will Ashley. I had heard a variation on this cold January late night working its way towards dawn tale a few years back but never as detailed. Take it away Will: “My brother Shepherd Ogden and I used to go and hear Preacher Jack at the Shipwreck Lounge on Revere Beach in the late 1970s. When he was seated on the piano bench, he ruled the room. Jack had a drinking problem, but he reconciled it with an abiding faith in Jesus Christ that he professed to anyone listening. Of course, we came to hear him play the blend of boogie-woogie, blues, rock-a-billy and country that had made him a local legend with a cult following, but I’d always request some gospel numbers, and he liked that.

DeCRISTOFARO REGISTER OF PROBATE May 22, 2020 T he Secure Act (Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement) may very well have the largest impact on retirement accounts since the passage of the Pension Protection Act in 2006. Although the Secure Act did away with the IRA stretch provisions that allowed beneficiaries to stretch out distributions from the IRA account over their lifetimes, it also increased the age at which IRA account holders are required to take out minimum distributions (RMD’s). Section 114 of the Act increases the age at which an IRA owner or participant in an employer-sponsored retirement plan must begin taking RMD’s from 70 ½ to 72. Participants in 401(k), 403(b) and similar Non-IRAbased employer-sponsored plans will still be able to delay taking RMD’s provided they are still working and meet the requirements of Internal Revenue Code Section 401(a)(9). The new required beginning date for taking RMD’s is now April 1st following the year in which the IRA owner reaches age 72. If you choose to take an RMD in the following year on or before April 1st , you will still have to take another RMD in that same year representing the age 73 RMD. true!) The Shipwreck Lounge was located on Revere Beach Boulevard; right across the boulevard was the beach and the shoreline. Preacher Jack got so moved by the Holy Spirit (fruit of the vine?) one winter evening that he asked the audience, ‘Are there any of you burdened by sin who want to be born again?’ Some of the audience said, ‘Yes, yes, Preacher Jack, take us to the Kingdom.’ Jack rose from the piano bench, walked through the bar, out the front door and across Revere Beach Boulevard onto the snow-covered beach, right into the surf. He waded out waist deep into the waves, turned, and like John the Baptist, shouted out to the dozen or so souls who had followed him from the Shipwreck Lounge, ‘I baptize you with water, but He who is coming after me, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry, will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire.’ Now that is what I would call fishing where the fish are. May the good Lord shine upon your face, Mr. Coughlin.” Changes To Required Minimum Distribution Rules This would double up your RMD for that particular year possibly putting you in a higher income tax bracket. Therefore, it might not be to your advantage to defer taking your RMD in the year you actually turn age 72. You might also get hit with IRMAA (Income Related Monthly Adjustment Amount) thereby increasing the amount of your monthly Medicare Part A premium. For anyone that actually turned 70 ½ in 2019, the RMD’s still need to be taken in 2020 if not already taken in 2019. The Secure Act does not allow those individuals to delay RMD’s until age 72. The life expectancy tables have not changed under the Secure Act. These are the tables used to determine the amount of the RMD to be taken each year. Some individuals may wish to take more out of their IRA accounts than the RMD’s. Why? For Estate/Medicaid planning in order to transfer assets to children. Parents may also be in a low tax bracket so taking more money out of IRA accounts now might make sense. Income tax rates could increase with future changes in the tax law. Someone has to pay the income taxes on IRA distributions. Sometimes it makes more sense for the IRA owner to pay the tax and not the children. Asset protection is always a consideration as maybe older Americans are very concerned about nursing home placement and do not have long-term care insurance. They are looking to transfer assets out of their name sooner than later. Joseph D.

My 78-year-old mother has always shopped for herself, but since the coronavirus pandemic hit the grocery store shelves are always half empty, and she’s getting more fearful of leaving the house. Parent Helper Dear Helper, There are numerous grocery and meal service delivery options available to help seniors stay safe at home during this pandemic, but what’s available to your mom will depend on her location and budget. You should also be aware that because of demand, many grocery and meal delivery services are overwhelmed right now, so some services in your mom’s area may be greatly delayed or temporarily unavailable. That said, here are some good options to look into. Grocery Delivery Services Today, there are a variety of websites and apps that allow you or your mom to shop for groceries and other household goods without having to step foot inside a store. Most of these services offer memberships (fees usually run around $100/year), which will get you or your mom free deliveries on orders over $30 or $35. Or, they’ll charge a fl at delivery fee, which typically cost around $8 to $10. Depending on where your mom lives there are numerous grocery delivery services like Instacart (instacart.com) and Shipt (shipt.com), which work with a wide variety of grocery retailers, including national and local chains and are widely available throughout the U.S. They use independent-contractor shopper/ drivers to pick up orders in stores and deliver them to you. You should also check into Walmart’s online grocery delivery or pick-up service (grocery.walmart.com), which is available in hundreds of locations across the U.S.; Amazon Prime Now (primenow.amazon.com), which is off ered in many U.S. cities; Peapod (peapod.com) that’s available in 24 metro markets; and FreshDirect (freshdirect.com) which serves the New York, Philadelphia and Washington D.C. areas and a few other select cities in the northeast. Meal Delivery Services If your mom still enjoys cooking, another convenient option to consider is meal kit delivery services like Home Chef (homechef.com), Sun Basket (sunbasket.com) or HelloFresh (hellofresh.com). Meal kits are subscription-based services that will send your mom a box containing fresh, pre-portioned ingredient items for that kit’s recipe. All she’ll need to do is combine the ingredients (some chopping, and slicing may be required) and cook it. Most meal kit services run between $8 and $12 per meal. Or, if your mom wants a break from cooking, a great alternative is to set her up with a ready-made meal delivery service like Mom’s Meals (momsmeals.com) or Silver Cuisine (silvercuisine.com). Both of these companies, which cater to older adults, off er a wide variety of healthy, fully prepared meal choices (just heat and eat), that accommodate a host of dietary needs for those managing diabetes or needing heart-friendly and/or lower-sodium meal options. Mom’s Meals, which run $7 per meal plus delivery, arrive fresh and will last up to 14 days in the refrigerator. Silver Cuisine meals are delivered frozen and cost $12 or $13 per meal. You should also fi nd out if there’s a senior home delivery meal program in your mom’s area. Meals on Wheels is the largest program that most people are familiar with, but many communities offer similar programs sponsored by other organizations that go by diff erent names. To find services available in your mom’s area, visit MealsOnWheelsAmerica.org, which off ers a comprehensive directory on their website. Most home delivered meal programs across the U.S. deliver hot meals daily or several times a week, usually around the lunch hour, to seniors over age 60. Weekend meals, usually frozen, may also be available, along with special diets (diabetic, low-sodium, kosher, etc.). Most of these programs typically charge a small fee (usually between $2 and $6) or request a donation, while some may be free to low-income seniors. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book. Indian Rock Supportive Housing, Inc.

Bread of Life hopes to soon have an entirely new way of doing things with its Under One Roof project, which will combine 14 units of aff ordable housing with a new kitchen, food pantry and dining room on the site of its current building on Eastern Avenue. Metro North Housing Corporation is funding and managing the housing portion of the project. Bread of Life is fundraising to cover the cost of the remainder of the facility. “We’re almost there; we have about $1 million left to raise,” said Kelly. “We feel very optimistic that we will be celebrating 40 years and a new beginning with a groundbreaking in November.” Although Stelmack takes pride in Bread of Life’s ability to adjust to situations and make do, she feels it is time for the organization to have a new home in a proper space. “It’s time fi - nally,” she said. “We’ve always been able to adapt and serve. With this project, we’ll be able to adapt and thrive.” —For more information about Bread of Life or to make a donation to the food pantry or the Under One Roof project, go to http://www. breadofl ifemalden.org/.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 22, 2020 Page 15 FATEFUL DECISION | FROM PAGE 12 veballs, he probably got lucky, too, as not many hooks are in the strike zone. To add insult to injury, the three home runs MJ hit that season led the outfielders who were on the Birmingham Barons roster that season. PopGun City! Did the White Sox purposely have a subpar outfield contingent in Birmingham so as not to draw attention to their shortsightedness with Jordan’s addition? Who knows? What we do know is that no outfielder that year from Birmingham ever made it to the big leagues. What about those guys stuck in Single-A? We wonder what those three guys stuck in Single-A would do that year? How would Malden’s Cappuccio have done? Plenty of people said they thought they saw major league potential in Jordan, others say he wasted his time. He never put on a glove or took a swing again. In March of the following year, after long eschewing a return to the White Sox, Jordan flipped the switch and returned to the Bulls, leading them to 24-of-27 wins in the home stretch of the NBA season, on their way to the 1994-95 World Championship. Two more titles followed as a second “Three-Peat” emerged before Jordan retired again, in 1997, only to return for a brief stint with the Washington Wizards. He’s now just your average billionaire NBA owner with the Charlotte Hornets in his home state of North Carolina. That 1994 season for Prince William was a solid one for all three budding White Sox prospects. Cappuccio led the team ~Handyman Services~ •Plumbing •Electric •Ceiling Fans •Waterheaters + More Call Tom 781-324-2770 in hitting at .292 and established a career high in home runs (12) and RBIs (60). Teammates Hurst (25 HRs) and Cameron (18 HRs) also showed off some power. The Cannons’ year was also the first time Cappuccio was on the same team with Pete Rose Jr. Son of “The Hit King” Pete Rose Sr., he became best “baseball friends” with Cappuccio, and the two of them ended up being on the same team, in different levels and leagues, for many of the following years the two of them played. I met Pete Jr. the opening game for the Cannons, which I attended in 1994, and several years later joined him as a member of Cappuccio’s wedding party when he married his wife, Shannon, in St. Joseph’s Church on Salem Street in Malden in 1997. Pete Jr. “The Hit Prince”! What a great guy and a great friend! All three outfielders did finally make it to Birmingham and Double-A the next season, in 1995. Cappuccio shined in Double-A, and in midseason got promoted to Triple-A Nashville, making local history as the first Malden High product to ever make it that high a level, one step from the big leagues! He hit .278 with four homers in 65 games for Birmingham and .272 with five homers in the same amount of games at Nashville. Cameron got a call up to the bigs and played 22 games in the majors in 1995. Hurst got traded to Detroit after the 1994 season. Cappuccio firstever Malden HS player at Triple-A In 1996, Cappuccio played a full season at Triple-A Nashville, and had one of his best pro seasons of all with 10 homers, 61 RBIs and a consistent .273 avFRANK’S Housepainting (781) 289-0698 • Exterior • Ceiling Dr. • Power Wash • Paper Removal • Carpentry FREE ESTIMATES — Fully Insured erage, In 1997, Cappuccio ran into something he had avoided in his entire professional career until then, the injury bug. He missed about half the season with back issues, and they accelerated, even with therapy – he played just 55 games. He tried to come back and get ready for the 1998 season, but he was released by the White Sox and did not go to spring training in 1998. Married and with a new baby at the time, a daughter, Tia, Cappuccio opted to take the season off in 1998 and heal up, hoping to come back in 1999. With no MLB offers, Cappuccio decided to go the Independent League route and signed with a fledgling team, the New Jersey Jackals. One of his teammates was “Proper prep makes all the difference” – F. Ferrera • Interior Pete Rose Jr. so there was some familiarity. Cappuccio went on a hitting tear the first week of that season that did not end until he was named Independent League “Player of the Year” by Baseball America magazine. He was the Independent League’s version of the Triple Crown winner that year, leading the league in batting average (.349), homers (17) and RBIs (75) in just 80 games.

Page 18 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 22, 2020 FATEFUL DECISION | FROM PAGE 15 him an invite to spring training in 2000 with the Philadelphia Phillies, and he was assigned to Double-A Reading (Pennsylvania). At 30 and stuck behind some younger Phillies prospects, his playing time was staggered, and his hitting numbers suffered. He was released by Reading about halfway through the season, and with few options signed a contract with Yucatán in the Mexican League to finish their season. That detour lasted 14 games and 62 at bats before he returned home to Florida to contemplate his future. Now with two children, his son, C.J., now “on the roster,” the Cappuccios decided to give it another shot; they headed out of the country once again, this time to Winnipeg, Ontario, to play for the Winnipeg Goldeyes in 2001, once again in the Independent League. Cappuccio’s final pro season in Canada, in 2001 Cappuccio became a bit of a folk hero. He set franchise and league records, including a 45game hitting streak which still stands. He played in all 90 games, hit nine homers and drove in 80 runs while hitting .359. It was a season to remember, but at 31 and not looking at a major league contract in his future, Cappuccio decided to call it a career after nine professional seasons, 663 games, 2,634 at bats, 50 home runs and 336 runs REAL ESTATE TRANSACTIONS BUYER1 Vu, Nguyenhoangan Mehta, Ronak Ohear, Meredith R Vasquez, Christianna N Mcauliffe, Simon C Shou, Eric Pineault, Brendan Burgholzer, Michael F Eccleston, Jonathan M Fredheim-Emerson, Britt I Quelle, Ian A Lafrance, Marc Mcfadden, Bridgeen M Snyders, Nicholas Nugent, Matthew A BUYER2 Nguyen, Xuan D Mehta, Sonam Chaffee, Christopher F Sarkar, Joydita Lee, Elizabeth SELLER1 Nguyen, So D Philius, Andre Tribble, Roy Donovan, Stephen Logiudice, Joseph A 22 Stearns Street NT Carney, Christopher J Moccia-Burgholzer, Alyse Keough, John J Connelly, Sara Durett FT Xu, Wanxin Mcfadden, Frank K Nugent, Nancy A SAUGUS Turner, Rebecca M Rachels, Richard E Durette, Denis R Wilcox, Janice M Yakovich, Laura SELLER2 Nguyen, Xuan D Cosmeus, Camelita Tribble, Elaine M Donahue, Mary P Oneill, John F Carney, Mary C batted in. For his entire pro career, he hit .291, a sensational statistic. These days he is a successful sales executive making his home in Greensboro, N.C., ironically, just a county or two away from Michael Jordan’s home. His two children were both accomplished high school athletes and both now attend college in Florida, as their parents did. Twenty-five years and “The Last Dance” later, lots of people, including Terry Francona, (whose opinion I respect, but not in this instance) glamorously spoke of how Jordan “could have definitely been a major leaguer, if he stuck with it...” I do not buy into that school of thought. Could Carmine Cappuccio have been a major leaguer, perhaps with that extra season of Double-A seasoning? Perhaps. Yeah, maybe, but we will never know. But it is always nice to think of what might have been, isn’t it? You made us proud, Carmine, you really did.
