The Passing of Warren Karsgaard

February 20, 2019

Thursday, February 14,

I am very saddened to inform everyone that Warren Karsgaard passed away this morning in Richmond.  Warren had fought a very determined battle with cancer for the past 2 ½ years and greatly appreciated the number of baseball friends who had visited him in the past few weeks. 

Warren was a founder of the LMBA and was important in getting the group established and working within the baseball community – his input and efforts as a player, manager, and LMBA Executive member contributed importantly in our growth and development.  Warren was recognized in 2014 with the LMBA’s Special Recognition Award.  Warren was also involved in Richmond Minor Baseball for over 40 years and his efforts were recognized by Richmond Minor Baseball, the City of Richmond, and BC Minor Baseball. 

2019 is the LMBA’s 25th Anniversary Season and Warren was always amazed at how much the LMBA had become a viable member of the local baseball community – we will be dedicating our season in his memory. 

Warren’s family will be contacting us with details regarding a service/memorial and we will forward that information to everyone.
