About Our BoardMeet our Board Members
Baseball has always been my #1 love in sports with it’s combination of individualism within a team environment. It’s a game where mental preparation and toughness can overcome physical superiority which can really teach kids valuable lessons well after their baseball playing days are over. I was lucky enough personally to play with a lot of great players through high school, American Legion, all kinds of summer and fall leagues, some more extensive travel ball, and of course it all started with our town’s Little League Baseball Association. I’ve enjoyed coaching for Bigfork baseball for the past four years and I’m hoping to help out even more as a Board member.
As a lifelong baseball enthusiast, Scott played all levels of youth baseball (T-Ball through American Legion).
He then played his high school ball in the largest conferences in Rhode Island and Southern Arizona.
Now a father of three, he enjoys and looks forward to the opportunity to usher in a new generation of baseball enthusiasts through coaching, and now as a BYBA Board Member.
