JAKE KISLAN ’56 In 2009, MMI chose to rename its annual golf tournament to honor long-time athlete and 1956 graduate Jake Kislan, who passed away in December 2008. Jake was a superior athlete at MMI in both baseball and basketball. In his senior year, he was selected as the region’s top basketball guard and helped lead the Preppers to the Anthracite League Championship with a 21-4 record. When basketball season ended, Jake began preparing for the baseball season as a pitcher for the MMI Preppers. After graduation, Jake played semi-professional baseball and was scouted by the Brooklyn Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies. Jake’s natural athletic ability was also evident in fast-pitch softball, as he was named the all-star shortstop after playing in both the Freeland and Hazleton fast-pitch leagues. Jake’s involvement in the sports community resulted in a number of significant contributions to the region such as the Drifton, PA Softball Complex – one of the premier facilities for softball in the country. Additionally, Jake was instrumental in bringing the U.S. Olympic Games women’s fast-pitch team to Drifton in 1996.

Special thanks to Mickey Kislan for all of her ongoing support of this event!
