He would also manage to take himself to ball games at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn to watch the Dodgers games; he did all this around the age of 5 or 6. His family moved to East Meadow when he was seven and he took his love of baseball throughout his school years. Nat graduated from East Meadow High School in1962 where he lettered in many sports but his all time favorite was baseball.
