Ernie Molnar, who played baseball, basketball, and softball as a youth, began his sports involvement in Taylor 43 years ago by managing and coaching the baseball, basketball, and football teams of his children.
Even after his children outgrew Little League, Catholic Youth Organization basketball and Taylor Junior Football, Molnar stayed active through coaching.
He held many offices in the Taylor Northeast Little League and Taylor Junior football Club, including president of both organizations. Although he stopped coaching and managing after 28 years, Molnar, age 74, continued to enjoy sports by playing softball up until 1998.
Mr. Molnar passed away shortly after his induction to the Taylor Sports and Recreation Hall of Fame.
