Chester “Whitey Maytag” Matykiewicz

He was the right hander who played for Witt Hanley Yankees, Fewer Boilers and became an Allstar 2nd sacker for Midland Motor’s- considered by many the best defensive player in the game at the position and always had a high batting average. Played on both Midland Motor’s and Witt Hanley Yankee title teams. The ’43 championship game ball after an 11-8 win was given to Whitey for his exceptional play by his fellow Yankees. A fan favorite and will always be known for his big smile, generosity, and being a family man. State wrestling champion for Lindblom Tech High School. Born in l917. He and his wife Grace have passed away. They are survived by two children and three grandchildren.
