Bergenfield LL: Danny Glover Scholarship
A special note from the Glover Family...
Dear Little League Board, Volunteers, and Players,
It is hard to believe that a year has passed since you honored Danny by renaming the scholarship in his name, and we don't know how to thank you enough for such a tribute.
Danny excelled in wrestling, but baseball was truly his favorite sport. I recently came across so many of his writings from grammar school, HS, and yes even college, and the topics are about players in baseball, the fun he had, the playing, the friends he made and how he wished that if he could be any famous person alive or deceased, it would have been Mickey Mantle (strictly just for his baseball talents), not his way of life always.
I wish this donation could be more, but please know it comes from the bottom of our hears and the love that is behind it. Please feel free to apply it where ever you see fit. May you all have a wonderful season and as Danny did love the game.
Play with your heart, and most of all have fun. Danny was the King of having fun and did it with such flare it was contagious.
Karyn, Ray, & Kristian Glover
From all of us at BLL, thank you to the Glover family for their generous donation to the league!
2012 Danny Glover Scholarship goes to...
The Danny Glover Scholarship was awarded last night just before the Major League Championship game to this year’s recipient Brian Cudina.
Brian is a graduate of BLL and has been a consistent volunteer for our program for many years. He has been the resident announcer for BLL including our Opening Day ceremonies, Challenger and Championship League games. The kids love him and every game he announces has that "big game" feel. In recent years he has position himself behind the plate as one of our officiating umpires. We wish Brian the very best as he attends Hofstra University on Long Island this fall. Congratulations to the entire Cudina family!
