New Westminister, BC - - Craig Donaldson Passes

Sad news today from BC, ISC Commissioner Craig Donaldson has passed away.

An update from Milt Michael:

The fastpitch community, his family, and friends lost a very good one last night. Craig Donaldson lost his battle with heart infection. There was none better at organizing and administering leagues and tournaments - and no one a better a friend!
He will be deeply missed !!!


And from the ISC:

The ISC is extremely saddened by the loss of Craig Donaldson, our VP and Director for the World Tournament. Craig passed away on Thursday March 4 at the age of 69 after a prolonged stay in hospital battling cardiac issues and other illnesses.

Craig was a fastball stalwart in the Vancouver, BC area for decades. He joined the ISC in 2002 as a Regional Commissioner. For the past eight years, he served as VP and Director for the World Tournament, responsible for the scheduling, bracket and oversight for the event as a whole.

“Putting together the chronological schedule for the ISC World Tournament, with all of the supporting events, is like putting together a new puzzle every year and no one did it better than Craig,” said ISC Executive Director Larry Fisher. “We are going to miss his dedication and his passion for the game.”

Craig helped usher in computerized scoring for the ISC, starting with the 2015 World Tournament in South Bend, IN, helping to teach new scorekeepers each year and overseeing a terrific group of volunteers. One of Craig’s legacies will be the online stats available through PointStreak.
