It is with a heavy heart All Stars Baseball Club advise of the passing of Edwin ‘Ted’ Roebuck. Our deepest condolences go out to the family.
Ted was our ‘Mr Baseball’ and leaves behind a baseball legacy spanning over 50 years. An indication of this is the many players coached by Ted that have gone on to coach high level teams in the senior or junior ranks. Ted last coached at All Star three years ago when he was in charge of the u14/s team and continued to mentor coaches up until recently.
