Melvin Dale Potter (Mel)

July 25, 1943 - July 19, 2018

Mel sadly past away Thursday July 19th.

He is survived by his wife Margaret, children & grandchildren.


Mel was a long time volunteer for Vancouver Minor Baseball , even before we were Vancouver Minor Baseball. Back in the 70's he even umpired at the park. During park event days he could be seen at the park first thing to help to set up.

When concession was very busy he would always step 

 in and give a hand. 

In later years Mel was mostly known as VMB's 50/50 guy. He loved to talk & joke with the people while raising money for the association. For the longest time when you came to a game at the park you could hear 50/50!!!! 

Mel also made the big time when he sold 50/50 tickets at the Canadians Games at Nat Bailey Stadium over the last few years. 


In the winter Mel's volunteerism did not stop. During Victoria Drive Community Hall children's Christmas party, he played Santa every year. 


He will be truly be missed by all that knew him. "Rest in Peace Mel".

                                                                                                                         


It is with a heavy heart Vancouver Minor  Baseball announce the passing of long time volunteer

 Fritz Banek


Fritz held several positions at Vancouver Minor Baseball over the years, 

none more significant than overseeing the management of umpiring development.

 Fritz held a strong presense in the community and was loved by many.

He will be missed.
