Submitted By Dan Thompson on Tuesday, September 25, 2018
Terriers Manager of Communications and Relations received the PBLO Lifetime Achievement Award this past week. On behalf of the entire Terriers organization, congratulations to John on this very deserving award. The award was presented to John by the only other person that has received it, Hall of Famer and former Toronto Sun ‎baseball columnist Bob Elliott. John moved to Ontario from Montreal in1970.

He is a baseball lifer, having played in Quebec from Little League all the way up to Junior. He began his coaching career in the late 1980's with the North York Blues. After a successful coaching career, including two National Championships in the 90's John turned his ‎sights to team management rolls. This skill set was a seamless transition for John because he had worked in the oil business for over 30 years with Castrol and Quaker State. He was their coast to coast National Sales Manager. ‎John sat on the Premier Baseball League of Ontario's board of Directors from 2004 till 2012. In November of 2012 John was voted league President, a position he held for three years. John is very organized, well respected, a great communicator and overall a true Ambassador for Canadian baseball. Bob Elliott is the Founder and Editor in Chief of the Canadian Baseball Network. Here is his article with more about John and the award.
