We regret to announce the sudden passing of our long time coach Troy Pennock.
Over the years, Troy coached in Baseball BC's High Performance Program, along with many more local associations, including Langley Blaze, Richmond and North Langley baseball. A more dedicated, positive and
passionate baseball coach would be hard to find. Troy will be truly missed by Baseball BC, its communities and certainly beyond...
It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to our coach, colleague and friend today, rest in peace Troy.

Hello to our friends across Canada
I hope this email finds you well and excited for another thrilling Blue Jays postseason run! I am emailing you from Jays Care Foundation at the Toronto Blue Jays in regards to our Field of Dreams capital granting program. The Field of Dreams program provides funding to design, refurbish, and build safe spaces for children all across Canada to play a baseball, develop life skills and learn from positive role models.
The 2017 granting application period is now open and we need your help! If you know of anybody in your local communities who you believe may be interested in receiving funding to build or refurbish spaces for kids to play, please pass along the attached information about this program. We have attached a summary of the Field of Dreams program and further details can be found on how to apply at http://toronto.bluejays.mlb.com/tor/jays-care/impact/field-of-dreams/. We would also be grateful for any help in sharing this message on Twitter through local association accounts to help reach as many Canadians as possible. Initial applications are accepted until October 31st and we are confident that our 2017 projects will be the most impactful yet!
We thank you for your help and support in positively impacting children and youth from across Canada.
Women's Ranking - Canada now #2 in World
Five-time defending world champions Japan -- winners of the recent LG Presents WBSC Women's Baseball World Cup 2016 in Gijang, Republic of Korea -- have extended the nation's lead from 400 points to 677 points over the second-ranked country due to an unprecedented win-streak of 21 games in World Cup competition. Japan is also ranked No. 1 in both the Men's Baseball and Women's Softball world rankings.
Canada jumped two spots to No. 2 in the world. The move represents a historical high in the rankings for the Women's Baseball World Cup 2016 silver medallists.
The United States dropped to No. 3 in the world, following a 7th Place finish at the world championship in Gijang, which represented the first time in history that the U.S. Women's National Team did not earn a medal in the women's pinnacle event.
After capturing the bronze medal of the Women's Baseball World Cup 2016, No. 5 Venezuela has moved within striking range of overtaking the U.S. and No. 4 Australia, coming within 124 points of Australia and 247 points of USA.
Chinese Taipei, following the nation's best-ever/4th Place World Cup finish in Gijang, like Venezuela, has significantly narrowed the gap between the No. 3 and No. 6 nations in the world, with only 26 points separating Venezuela and Chinese Taipei.
Korea made the biggest jump forward in women's baseball, advancing four positions to a historical high of No. 7 in the world, following a record 6th Place finish in Gijang for the nation.
Newcomers India and Pakistan debut in the rankings at No. 11 and No. 12 in the world.

It's National Coaches Week Sept 17-25
Baseball BC is looking to celebrate Coaches Week by nominating two coaches to attend the 2016 Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif Conference - Investors Group Community Coaches Day
This is a full day event designed to engage community coaches from the host province of B.C. at the Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif conference in Richmond. The 2 coaches selected will participate in a free full day of networking, education, inspiration, professional development, and NCCP coach training sponsored by the Investors Group (travel and accommodations not included).
Each selected coach will attend the final day (Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016) of the 2016 Petro-Canada Sport Leadership sportif conference with the rest of the conference delegates, which includes two networking meals (breakfast and lunch) and four plenary speaker sessions. They will also receive a special Investors Group delegate bag filled with coaching swag and after the conference ends, the selected coaches will attend a plenary session specifically for the community coaches and one of four pre-selected NCCP multi-sport workshops.
As the PSO/DSO, we will nominate two deserving community coaches who would benefit from this opportunity. Coaches are not required to be in your NCCP Community-stream pathway (ie Comp Intro is fine), but should not be high performance/Comp-Dev coaches or staff members at your organization.
