When reminiscing and sharing stories with younger generations, it is usually necessary to start by saying, ``Please don't try this at home``! After High School Tony entered the apprenticeship program, received an Associate's degree through Ivy Tech and became a pipefitter. He worked for a variety of contractors through Local 440 and played shortstop for the union's softball team wearing the number 21.
