2015 Presidents Award Nominee

April 17, 2015

Baseball BC proudly nominates Ian McLean for the 2014 President’s Award.



“Paying it forward” is the mantra, and Ian Mclean has been living the vision for children with disabilities in BC for a very long time now.

Ian has been leading the Challenger Baseball Division of Little League BC for at least 10 years, and then joined Baseball BC to grow the program in all BC communities and most recently added Baseball Canada to his resume as he works tirelessly to promote and grow the game of baseball for children with cognitive and physical disabilities.

Whether it recruiting people across Canada to join him on the “journey” or knocking on doors of cooperate Canada in an attempt to raise the profile of this tremendous program, Ian McLean is a man on a mission.

“In a league, on a team, in a uniform” is the catch phrase…but more importantly it is the outcome for hundreds of children across this great country due in a very large part to the Baseball BC Presidents Award winner for 2015, Ian McLean.

From all of us in sport Ian, THANK YOU for taking us along on your journey.
