Southeastern Region Mourns Loss of South Carolina DA Danny McFaddin

Little League's Southeastern Region is sad to announce the passing of South Carolina District 5 Administrator Danny McFaddin.

McFaddin, 52, had been the DA for district 5 since February 2004 when the district was first created, meaning he was the only DA for that district. He served as the recreation director for the Town of Kingstree and had previously coached baseball teams for the department as well. He was a dedicated member of Williamsburg Academy Booster Club. McFaddin was a Navy Seal, and a police officer with Cayce Public Safety, Greeleyville Police Department, Williamsburg County Sheriff’s Department and Kingstree Police Department.

McFaddin is survived by his son, Chase Owen; his daughter, Hope Leah; and two brothers, Fred B. (Eudene) and Wade (Lissa).

Memorials can be made to Williamsburg Regional Hospital Foundation, PO Drawer 568, Kingstree, S.C. 29556.

Larry Adams Receives First Golden Mask Award

Warner Robins, Ga. – Little League Baseball and Softball® volunteer umpire Larry Adams received the first Golden Mask Award prior to the Little League Baseball® Southeastern Region Tournament final Friday, August 9 at Little League Southeast Park in Warner Robins, Ga.

Adams, a native of Elizabethton, Tenn., received the award for his continued service to his local league, Carter County American Little League.

The Tennessee District 5 umpire has been a volunteer at Carter County American Little League for the past eight years. In addition to local league games, Adams has umpired both district and state-level tournaments. He was also selected as a volunteer umpire for the 2011 Southeastern Region Little League Softball tournament.

Over the past eight years Adams has been fully involved with league, not only as an umpire but as an active board member and volunteer. He has also recruited new umpires to the league and trained numerous umpires for the league. Included in this was creating a youth umpiring program for the league.

Adams was presented with a hand-crafted award that he can display at his home. A plaque, which will list each award winner, hangs at the Southeastern Region Headquarters for all to see and already includes Larry as the first honoree.

The yearly award was created by the Southeastern Region Headquarters as a way to honor one volunteer umpire from the eight states that make up the region (Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia). Nominations were accepted earlier in the year from league presidents and district administrators.
