TOC Repeat Winner Fabel of NY, Dies

April 1, 2015 – Joe Ruggiero SSUSA staff

Herbert L. Fabel of White Plains, N.Y., died on Dec. 12 at the age of 74.

An excellent all-round player, Herb played senior softball from 1995 to 2013 with both the New York Streaks and the Long Island Jaguars. An avid sportsman and dedicated player, Herb won several championship rings including two Tournament of Champion crowns.

Streaks’ manager Tony Prettitore and Long Island Jaguar’s manager Joel Reich said that Herb had the ability to brighten everyone’s day. The practical joker of the team, Herb always kept the game loose and fun. Herb was “very good to everybody” and always gave “a lot of encouragement,” said Prettitore, “He taught me how to use the heavy arm.”

After his knee operation, despite not being able to play, Herb helped coach and kept the books; always willing to help out his teammates and friends.
