Nick “The Greek” Siemasz
Legendary Harbor Hawks coach Nick “The Greek” Siemasz passed away on October 24. Nick “The Greek” was a true baseball lifer, first as a Brooklyn Dodgers farmhand in the 1950s and later as a coach in the Italian Industrial League, at Lynn University and at Miami-Dade Community College.
The Greek spent some 35 years as an assistant on the Cape, logging more than 25 summers with Hyannis and imparting his baseball wisdom to hundreds of Mets and Harbor Hawks over the decades. He exemplified the volunteer spirit of Cape League baseball, serving Hyannis in roles that included bench coach, first base coach, groundskeeper, and clubhouse attendant. He received the Cape League Hall of Fame’s lifetime achievement award in 2013. The right field foul pole at McKeon Park bears his name, and his jersey is the only retired jersey in franchise history.
The Hyannis Athletic Association mourns the passing of the soul of the Harbor Hawks, an unforgettable baseball personality, and a remarkable human being who touched the lives of everyone he met.
Thank you for an unforgettable 2015 season
The Hyannis Harbor Hawks came up just short in their quest for a Cape Cod Baseball League championship in 2015, winning the Western Division in the regular season and the playoffs before taking the champion Y-D Red Sox to a third game in the best-of-3 CCBL Championship Series. The 2015 season was one for the ages in Hyannis, and we thank you for following the Harbor Hawks throughout this spectacular summer.
