When Mike Proly ’74CBA discusses both his St. John’s University and Major League Baseball career, there is one common refrain: gratitude.

“I never thought I was above anybody. A lot of that was instilled in me by Coach Kaiser. As successful as he had been in his career, he was a great, down to earth guy. That was my career: you never took yourself too seriously. You had fun, but when it came time to work, you worked.”
