Will Smith 1966 - 2013

  As the administrator of District #3 Little League , I have come to know Will as a fantastic , committed , ardent volunteer. The children within the Leagues that he has played and coached in look up to him as an expert baseball guy. Fiercely passionate and competitive about the game. He has committed over 40 years of his life to Little League; playing , volunteering and coaching. As a player he made it to the World Series in Williamsport in 1978, Gary Indiana in 1981 and Fort Lauderdale in 1984 . This has allowed him to share with young players what could happen if you work hard at learning and playing the game. We appreciate deeply the kind of commitment Will had to this sport and the children he taught. The joyful memories of the peace sign he so aptly used with the boys , the endless hours of practice that paid off , and of course the running ( his favorite) – Will was a huge part of the roots of baseball in our District and it showed. He never missed a game if it could be helped and was always willing to take the extra step to train and improve. Even when there was a thunderstorm he didn’t want to stop the game – he was finally unable to keep it going and when they did stop – the sun came out wouldn’t you know it. It is a testament to Will and his commitment to baseball and the children, that his North Langley Senior/ Big League Rangers team from 2012 is here in his honor to show their respect along with so many other friends and community members. With all the long hours of volunteering Will still took great pride in having a family that he so dearly loved. Spending as much time together as they could giving each other support through all that life could hand them. Will was a true friend – he gave freely of himself and his time. We will all miss him dearly.  

When we look up in the sky at night it is said that those we have lost look over us through the openings to the heavens we call stars … I believe he is the brightest of the lights in the sky and will never leave our sides ; when we need him he will be there.  

Thank you Will for all you have given us.

White Rock South Surrey wins 11 - 12 Districts

Congratulations to White Rock South Surrey in their victory over Whalley on Monday, July 15. The team went undefeated in their six tournament games and only allowed 12 runs during the four game pool play. They now advance to the Provincial Championships in District 1, Vancouver.

In the Final, White Rock scored 1 in the first before Whalley came back to take a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the first. Cody Sigouin came on to pitch out of a bases loaded jam in the bottom of the 2nd when Whalley threatened to break the game open, which allowed White Rock to get the bats going and eventually take the lead against Whalley's starter Sherman Lin. Sigouin shut down Whalley the rest of the way, striking out 10 batters to earn the win. White Rock will open the Provincials on Saturday vs Kootney. 

The tournament starts July 20 and is hosted by Kerrisdale Little League, the final game is July 28. Further information can be found at https://sites.google.com/site/bcplittleleaguebaseball Good Luck White Rock South Surrey in representing District 3!
