RE: PETER SMITH -  DEATH

 

Softball Nova Scotia has lost a dedicated and life-long supporter of our sport. During his playing career, Peter had played high level Intermediate Fast-Pitch for many years on local East Hants Teams and had successfully participated in many tournaments throughout Nova Scotia. His passion for coaching Minor Softball was recognized by his peers and the many youths that were the benefactors of his skilled approach to the game.

During the summers Peter spent countless hours coaching minor softball teams in the East Hants area and was driving force behind maintaining the Lantz Sports Field Complex. Teams coached & managed by Peter successfully competed and hosted numerous Provincial & Eastern Canadian Fastball Championships.

Peter had been a key component of the Nova Scotia Men’s Canada Games Softball team coaching staff that successfully represented the province in 2001 (Ontario) and 2005 (Saskatchewan). 

We have lost one of our true ambassadors of our sport and a sincere friend!
