This past weekend would have been the 2nd Annual Mike Whitmey Invitational Long Weekend Majors tournament hosted by Langley Baseball.
Due to the current situation, we are unable to host this event this year. We would like to reflect on the great memories we shared in 2019 during this event with many supporters in attendance including the Whitmey family, lots of their close friends and family, co-workers, teammates, current and past board members and eight teams from the lower mainland.
Mike was an executive board member of Langley Baseball, manager , coach, and volunteer for over 8 years. Mike donated his time and funding to help the club and its members at Langley Baseball throughout his 8 years. Mike was always positive in and off the field. Mike will always be remembered for his great smile and laughter and had a way of bringing everyone together for a good cause.
We had T-shirts made for this event for all the participants and coaches, the Blue Jays donated stickers MW10 for all the players in honour of Mike. We donated all shirt sales to Mikes charity which supports underprivileged children and helps them play organized sports
If you would like to donate to Mikes charitable foundation please go to the following website
We look forward to hosting the 3rd annual Mike Whitmey invitational tournament again in 2021.
Langley will try to defend their title again next year as the Langley Dodgers won the first annual Tournament in 2019 vs Hastings Little League.
Be safe and we look forward to seeing everyone on the diamond soon!
President of Langley Baseball
