Stories About Tyler

I can’t even begin to count the amount of times I saw Tyler at TLL. Always had a huge smile on his face no matter the situation. Absolutely amazing guy. Tuckahoe isn’t gonna be the same. I will forever remember Tyler and his amazing personality.

Tyler was always the nicest kid. Last year he was in my gym class. We would be out playing soccer and whatnot and he would play keeper because he wasn’t the greatest at kicking the ball but he always tried his best. Anyways we would all be exhausted after playing and when we came in we were supposed to go and take our pedometers that we wore during gym to the end of the hallway to put them back, and Tyler would always ask to take mine for me and It’s just those little things that defines Tyler and how great of a kid he was. Always being the nicest he could be without even trying, it just came naturally and I’m just at a loss of words… He was the greatest, most spectacular guy you could ever wish to meet, always making people around him smile. Thank you Tyler for always being you and let’s all try and live like Tyler, for Tyler.

I didn’t know Tyler too well, but i did play baseball with him a couple of years ago. The one thing that has stuck in my mind about him was that he was always able to make anyone laugh and/or smile no matter the circumstances. We could be getting killed out on the field and everyone would be sitting in the dugout in a crappy mood and Tyler would be cracking jokes and making everyone laugh to get their minds off the game. We miss you like crazy bro, rest easy

    When Tyler played for the Red Sox, I had the privilege of coaching with Joe Sroba. One game versus the A’s and after numerous requests from Tyler, we decided to let him pitch. Those of you that knew Tyler knew he possessed 90+ velocity. That’s 90 YPH….YARDS Per Hour. After the game, Mike Carlisle came up to me and said, “Chuck I have NEVER seen a kid throw nothing but curve balls”. I said, “Mike….that was his fastball”. We had a big laugh but there was NO ONE more thrilled that day, than Tyler the minute he toed the rubber. We miss you Tyler!
