Vale George Lygris – Life Member

On behalf of the club we would like to pass on our condolences to the Lygris family for the passing of Life Member George Lygris (here he is at our 2018/19 Summer Presentation wearing his trusty Hunters top).
George never played the game but was one of the finer critics of all our performances that we all loved.  Having started in baseball via his sons, Archie and Emmanuel (Manny) and nephews Trifon and Bill, he was always there to transport his sons to their games and watch them play, which quickly extended to transporting the other kids too, especially when his sons became junior coaches but didn’t have their licences yet!
From there his involvement only increased, from sweating over a lamb spit for the club at functions, or scoring (but never in colour) at 8:30am in the middle of a winter morning during juniors, and then as his boys became older, through the sweltering heat of a Sunday afternoon summer seniors game, or the cold Winter afternoons.
The last game George watched was the 2019/20 Division 3 Reserves Grand Final, in which Manny was playing.  In a remarkable turn of events,  the team came back from being 12 runs down in the bottom of the 7th to win 20 to 14.  As with everyone there, George was stunned at the result, but very happy.
He leaves behind a wonderful legacy, with his sons Archie Lygris and Emmanuel Lygris taking a leaf from their father’s book, and equally volunteering their time over the years, both also becoming life members and still active members of the baseball club!
George’s funeral service will be held, Thursday 3rd December at 2pm.  For those wishing to join virtually or leave a tribute, please use this link:  https://vimeo.com/485705225/a7eab06ff5?fbclid=IwAR3ewjGFyRVvqhEGBcjre_6O03fMe9k1T51-g1Aa1LVa0u5zvS807AAR3uk
