DEDICATION

WARREN Karsgaard

The Lower Mainland Baseball Association was greatly saddened by the passing of one of our original members, Warren Karsgaard on February 14, 2019.  Warren was in attendance at a meeting sponsored by an American adult baseball group in July, 1994.  When the group was unable to start up a recreational baseball league for adults, Warren and several others decided to start the Lower Mainland Baseball Association on their own.  Warren, along with others, organized try-outs at Central Park in Burnaby, helped set up an Executive and served for several years as league registrar.  His background experience in senior and youth baseball was invaluable to a group finding its way.  For the next 24 years Warren participated as a player, manager, and Executive member and his contributions were significant in the growth and development of the league. 

When original players were starting to “age out” of the 30+ Division, Warren worked closely with Ray Edger to start up a very successful 45+ division, thereby extending playing careers for everyone.  Warren volunteered for 40 years in Richmond Minor Baseball and was deservedly recognized for his efforts by BC Minor Baseball, Richmond City Baseball, and the City of Richmond.

The Lower Mainland Baseball Association is proud to dedicate our 2019 season in memory of Warren Karsgaard.

A baseball life . . . . . well lived!
