Battlefords Minor Baseball congratulates Zaiden Osicki on being named the “Lou Slotsve Junior Official of the Year” from Baseball Sask. Zaiden is a Grade 10 student at North Battleford Comprehensive High School and has just finished his third year of umpiring with Battlefords Minor Baseball Inc. (Lou Slotsve was a teacher and prominent Saskatoon Umpire whose passion was seeing young umpires improve their skills both on and off the ball diamond.) BMBI also congratulate Phil McGee on being named “Senior Official of the Year” with Baseball Sask. He has been to several national championships and regularly umpires in the Western Major Baseball League. The awards were handed out during the Oct. 19 annual meeting held in Saskatoon. “Saskatchewan Baseball Leagues use a lot of umpires so to have both officiating levels recognized this year is a major accomplishment in our community,” said Clint Gieni, president of Battlefords Minor Baseball. “BMBI looks forward to getting more novice umpires involved in 2020 as our organization continues to grow.” Submitted by BMBI
