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.
Jill is a Bigfork native and an active member of the Bigfork community. Jill is the President of the Bigfork Chamber of Commerce and an active leader in Flathead County 4-H. Jill and her husband Aaron, along with their two sons, Carson and Case, enjoy all that Montana has to offer, horseback riding, hunting, fishing, camping, boating, baseball and family.
I am lucky enough to have two boys that love Baseball as much as I do. My daughter also played in our Bigfork Little League program. Growing up, baseball provided me an opportunity to learn what it takes to be a part of a team. This lesson has been the catalyst to my success in the working / real life world. I preach attitude and effort in every scenario. Skills can be learned. Fundamentals can be taught. Bigfork Baseball enrolls and has an impact on 175+ kids every year. This number is growing, and probably one of the most influential programs in our small village. This program focuses on the kids 100%. I am proud to help shape this program for the future.
