Mark Fisch attended Lockport Township High School the same time future major league baseball player and Cubs radio analyst Ron Coomer transferred in from St. Rita.

“I still see him, and I like to bust his chops and say, ‘You’re the reason I never made the varsity baseball squad,’” Fisch said. “I tell him, ‘I had a spot, and you bumped me out of it.’ But it was great for him to go on and have his dream career.

“Fortunately, like Ron Coomer, I was able to have my dream career, too.”
