The Larry Fisher Memorial Award is given out annually to a volunteer within the Oakridge Baseball family who has been nominated by peers and/or players. The recipient has to have demonstrated their superior dedication to the baseball players of the OOBA and has done so for numerous years

This year's recipent is Dave Keays. Dave has been a long serving member of the OOBA Board of Directors.  He served in many roles including his current one as Equipment Manager for OOBA and the Tincaps organization.

Dave ensures that all of our teams have the right equipment and not only look great but are safe on the field.  When Dave is not in the equipment room outfitting or teams our helping someone, you can find him at the diamond cheering our teams on!  

When presented with the award, Dave commented; "I'm just glad I could be a part of it.  I have had the opportunity to work with some great people and I am thankful."

It is through the contributions of individuals like Dave that Oakridge Optimist Baseball Association has grown to well over 550 players and more than 100 coaches and volunteers.

We sincerely thank Dave for his valued contribution over the years and the positive impact he has on our community.
