"communication is so very important in today's fast paced world and we believe that Phil will allow us to further share our programming and sport development initiatives with the people that will benefit the most from them."
"I'm very excited about taking on this challenge." says Phil "Growing the footprint of the sport in all aspects is a responsibility we all share, regardless of personal affiliation. Baseball BC, along with its member groups and sponsors, have all sorts of beneficial resources and programming for people to take advantage of. We need to find ways to get that information into the hands of people who can make use of them."
