WITH SYMPATHY In memory of Marc Koyanagi "The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members." 11 September, 2017  BRITISH BASEBALL FEDERATION  It is with deep grief; we inform you of the loss of Marc Koyanagi. Marc had a medical emergency on 9th September, while in attendance at our postseason games at Farnham Park. Marc was taken to A&E, but, unfortunately, he did not recover and later passed away. Marc leaves behind his wife, Susan, and two sons Hudson (13) and Graydon (16). Marc and his family have been active participants in our baseball community over the last years. Hudson is active at LondonSports. Gray plays for the London Mets and our GB National Team. Marc was a trustee at the LondonSports Club. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Koyanagi family, at this time. In memory of Marc, our baseball community came together to express their sympathy to the Koyanagi family through messages of condolences and our playoff teams held a minute of silence, for all games at the start, on Saturday, 16th September.
