Redwood Empire Baseball League's Glen Hurley a True Neighborhood Hero

By Steve LaMontia, Director of Communications

Glen Hurley is a player in the Redwood Empire Baseball League in California.  The fires this past summer in the Santa Rosa area created many heartbreaking stories while uncovering many heroes. Glen is one of those.  As he was frantically gathering his own possessions and dogs to get out of the fire’s path, he took the time to get to his neighbors up and down the street, pound on their doors and tell them to get out NOW!

Stephen Nett, on behalf of The Press Democrat newspaper in Santa Rosa, published a story on November 20th outlining Glen’s heroics.  A copy of the story was recently sent to me by Donny DeCordova, long standing MSBL player and manager from the neighboring Tri Valley MSBL.

Glen is an infielder/pitcher for the 55-over White Sox, as well as manager, and has been a league member since the late 90’s.  He also serves on the REBL board of directors and has the unenviable task of collecting team fees.

Added Redwood Empire league president Rick Cantor, "Glen further volunteers his time as our field maintenance person at ‘A Place to Play Park’, where he tirelessly works to upkeep and improve the field for our league and also directs the youth leagues in their maintenance of the field during their use.  He is a model member of our league and our Board and few, if any, devote more of their time to the REBL.”
