Tony Niglio is another of those people who have contributed so much to Coal Region sports. An outstanding athlete on his own, Tony competed for 18 years as a softball pitcher and won more than 300 games. In 1957, he won 27 games and lost only one, while being the league MVP.

As a bowler he was equally proficient. He averaged 187 over 20-year period, and there are people making a living at the game doing not much better. He once had a game of 257. Additionally, he has coached kids for more than 20 years.

His St. Mary’s of Kulpmont teams have always stood out, winning three Deanery championships, and in 1971 an overall league title.
