In memory of Bill Holmberg
In 2020, the world of baseball lost a great instructor and person in Bill Holmberg. With great sadness, the BBF expressed its sympathy to Bill's family, as he fought an illness which he eventually was overcome. The BBF solicited and contributed to the Bill Holmberg crowdfunding page set-up by the family to assist the family. Bill supported the British baseball community in many ways, e.g., he appeared in our Webinar series and instructed on several skills and training insights. May Bill R.I.P.
In memory of Greg Roscow
In 2020, Greg Roscow was a part of the Bristol Baseball Club. Greg eventually lost his struggle to mental illness. In memory of Greg, the BBF dedicated and named the BBF Single-A trophy in his name, and it was presented at the BBF Open Baseball Tournament in Bristol. While we all deal with life's challenges in different ways, everyone in our baseball community is important, no matter what type of struggle you have. We want to commend the Bristol Baseball Club for hosting a charity event and how it raised funds for mental illness on behalf of Greg. May Greg R.I.P.
