An original Dirtbag, Tom Urbani, passed away this week. Tom is a Santa Cruz native (where I now live) and played at Harbor HS, Cabrillo College, and finally LB State.
I don't think Tom ever got over being essentially blackballed for crossing the picket line.
Post professional baseball Tom coached HS baseball and also ran some travel teams in addition to lessons.
Tom was one of the nicest dudes you could meet.
