Tom Cain was a three-sport star at Suffield High School, excelling in soccer, basketball and baseball from 1946 - 1949.  In soccer, Tom became a star his sophomore year and was the leading scorer and best defensive player for three years.  On the basketball court, he led the team in scoring his last three years with over 300 points each season and was an outstanding rebounder.  His best sport was baseball, where he played outfield and catcher.   He had a very strong arm and was a terrific base runner, but it was his hitting that really made him stand out.  Tom batted over .350 his last three years and led the team in RBIs each year, while hitting several prodigious home runs.  

After High School he played semi-pro baseball in the Farmington Valley Semi-pro League and the Hartford Twilight League, and earned a tryout with the Boston Braves.   After his playing days he coached and umpired youth baseball in Suffield for several years.
