2022 LMBA Dedication - Amanda Asay

2022 Season Dedication

Amanda Asay

1988 – 2022

The LMBA baseball community along with Baseball Canada, Baseball BC, and the City of Prince George   has received devastating news concerning the tragic death of Amanda Asay in a skiing accident in Nelson, BC.

The range of tributes which have appeared in the last few days shows the extent of her importance to the game of baseball at so many levels.  For the past fifteen years, Amanda was recognized as one the world’s most outstanding female baseball players.  Her outstanding skills came combined with being a leader and an outstanding teammate.  Her impact at the provincial and national levels enabled both programs to make huge strides and her absence will be profoundly missed. 

Amanda’s influence extended well beyond her playing skills – she was a positive and genuine person.  Amanda made the game of baseball better and everyone (teammates, opponents) benefitted from her presence.

Amanda first played in the LMBA in 2016 as a member of the Howe Sound Hounds becoming the first female to play in our league on a regular basis.  Her skills were immediately recognized and her joy for the game and the company of her teammates was evident.  She was a great person, and we all were better for her participation.  Amanda was also an outstanding leader in the British Columbia baseball community and her impact on the development of female baseball in the province was immeasurable.

The entire LMBA baseball community extends our deepest sympathies to Amanda’s family, friends, and teammates.
