    He was a very good teacher. I still recall some of his teachings from about 40 years ago. He was a traditional teacher who kept his students updated on modern current events back then. My sincerest condolences to all of his family.

    We will never forget Al Blasi in Malden, “The Blas” as he was known forever by Malden High baseball coaches from 1984-1999. He was one of the kindest, most positive high school coaches you could meet, who also coached some of the best players in the North Shore like Emilio and Johnny Leone, Jim Chesna, Lou Oliveri, Dave Lightbody, Mike Spinelli and many others. Our best Malden High teams from the late 1980s and mid-1990s had to go through Revere first for any shot at GBL baseball success or titles. Will never forget the biggest HS baseball crowd anyone ever saw for a Malden @ Revere game in 1995 with Spinelli on the hill for Revere and Kevin McGlinchy hurling for Malden that day. Coach also devoted much of his time with Mass, Baseball Coaches Assn. (MBCA) as a former President, Hall of Fame inductee and member. We lost a great one in Al. Please know everyone in Malden respected Al and will miss him greatly. RIP ‘Blas’ (from Former Malden HS coach Steve Freker, now coach at Saugus HS and MBCA Treasurer)
