The Robbie Biddlecombe Memorial Awards will be presented to one 13U (PeeWee) and one 11U (Mosquito) player. This short ceremony will be held at Eldon Park. Attendance is mandatory for all 13U and 11U players (in uniform), but we want to extend the invite to all players and families in the NSBA given the truly special nature of this award. Robbie’s family will be in attendance. We hope to see as many players and family members out for this event.
Date: Saturday, June 17, 2017
Time: 12:00 PM
Location: Eldon Park – 11U (Mosquito) Diamond
Note: The Robbie Biddlecombe Memorial Award is a special award in memory of a special player. Robbie was never the best player on the team, in fact baseball did not come naturally to him, but what he lacked in talent he made up for in determination and an infectious, positive attitude. Robbie’s life was cut short by cancer at the age of 11. Forest Hills Little League has been remembering Robbie through this annual award since 1980. The trophy was traditionally awarded to a Minor and Major league player each year, as well as a plaque to a nominee from each team. The selection criteria do not even include baseball skills, but instead focuses on recognizing players with the other qualities of a team player; sportsmanship, positive attitude, joy of the game and support for their teammates.
