All Public Baseball Player of the Year 1967

Nicholas Marino 3rd
N.62nd Street, Overbrook

At 5 feet, 6 inches, Marino never was the tallest player in the many football and baseball games he played, but he usually was the toughest. He was the 1967 All-Public Baseball Player of the Year, the same year he graduated from Overbrook High School. He was an outstanding linebacker as well on the Overbrook varsity football team. Marino went on to study architectural drafting at Dobbins Vocational High School. He joined the Marine Corps in November 1967. He was ordered to Vietnam the following year and assigned to Company I of the 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marines, 3rd Marine Division. He had to do “his duty as he saw fit,” as a family member put it. The 18-year-old lance corporal, a rifleman, died in Quang Tri Province on September 10, 1968. He was survived by his mother, a brother and sister.

You will always be with me.

You were the big brother I never had who freely gave his time to take me places and do things with me. I admired everything about you and especially how you could make me feel like I was your friend and not just a cousin. I remember you and brother Ed playing baseball for the Overbrook League and how the Cincinnati Reds drafted you for a farm team before you got the call to serve. I know you're in Heaven because you've already served your time in hell. Maynard C. Krebbs will never forget...

My old High School Pal

Nicky was my friend from Overbrook High School. Every morning we would smoke cigarettes at the water ice stand across the street. I remember his beautiful eyes and his shy smile.
In september of 1968, I started school at Temple University. My first week, I was riding on the bus. The lady next to me was reading the paperand there was Nicky's picture. I got off the bus and went home. I used to pray that was just a nightmare I had had, but now I know it's not. Love you Nicky, you were a good friend. Lynn Lepofsky Peraza
