"Life is not fair, but John Scarpelli was". The Rochester Baseball Community mourns the passing of John Scarpelli on April 23rd, 2014 at age 47. The founder and president of the Rochester NABA League leaves behind his wife Anne and four school age children. John founded the Rochester NABA in 1993 as a place for the "other guy"  who played for the love of the game to play ball. He was elected to the NABA Hall of Fame  in 2006 and  also served as a member of the Fairport Little League Board of Directors. 

John watched his league grow to its current state of 16 teams in the 18+ Wood Bat and 14 teams in the 28+ Wood Bat Leagues., making Rochester NABA one of the largest programs in the country. John loved the game and his "Sandlot Days" played at some of the best baseball locations in the Rochester area were open to all and a great way to spend a day at the ball park. All Star games too were special times for the guys that made them. 

John's loss for us here, is heavens gain, baseball just got a whole lot better there.
