For next season (2018), there’s a renewed focus on improving our corporate governance, organisational structures, communication, revamping our processes, develop new members opportunities, and greater emphasis on our member's user experience. You will hear more of the above in the weeks to come.
To start, we have been working on the ability for our members to begin to plan for next season. We have prepared a forward-looking calendar with important dates and information for 2018. Please note, the events and dates indicated below are forward-looking and subject to change, but offer the baseline for you to begin to plan. We endeavour to update and confirm all of the particulars for each milestone date, once we know more (e.g., once our members register we can determine postseason formats), Farnham Park (dates are available) and we get your feedback. Our forward-looking calendar is an ambitious objective from our board. It is the first time such a forward-looking calendar has been made public by the BBF, this far in advance of the preceding years opening day, but it is required if we are going to improve our member's user's experience and opportunities. We welcome your feedback at our AGM (2 Dec 2017) and where we will be providing you a further update on the dates and events planned in 2018.
BRITISH BASEBALL FEDERATION - Wednesday, 13 September 2017
It is with deep grief that we inform you of the loss of Marc Koyanagi. Marc had a medical emergency on the weekend of 9-19 September while in attendance at our postseason games at Farnham Park. Marc was taken to A&E, but, unfortunately, he did not recover and later passed away.
Marc leaves behind his wife, Susan, and two sons Hudson (13) and Graydon (16). Marc and his family have been active participants in our baseball community over the last years. Hudson is active at LondonSports. Gray plays for the London Mets and our GB National Team. Marc was a trustee at the LondonSports Club. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Koyanagi family, at this time.
In memory of Marc's loss, we will be holding a minute of silence at the start of all games this Saturday 16 September.
