Bradley Teasdale accepts BC Minor Baseball Player of the Year award from Eric Toneff.

Bradley Teasdale is BC Minor Baseball Player of the Year

Comox Valley Re/Max Ocean Pacific Realty Bantam Rep player honoured in Langley

Bradley Teasdale of the Comox Valley Re/Max Ocean Pacific Realty Bantam Rep travelling team was named Player of the Year at BC Minor Baseball Association’s 2015 awards banquet.

Teasdale received the award Feb. 21 at the Langley Events Centre. It was presented to him by Eric Toneff, area supervisor for Vancouver Island North for BC Minor Baseball.

Toneff, a past president of the Comox Valley Baseball Umpires Association, told the crowd that Teasdale’s athletic skills, abilities, and game stats were more than enough to gain his nomination for this award, but it was his attitude and willingness to be part of the team that made him stand out.

To quote his coach Shannon Gaboury, “Brad’s greatest attribute besides his playing skills, is his willingness to mentor, and encourage others without judgment. He acts like a leader and does so by example of encouraging spirit, and good sportsmanship.

“He is a hard worker at every practice, game and off-field jobs. His positive attitude and ability to connect with all players and coaches goes a long way in consideration for this award.  It has been my pleasure to coach, and be associated with Brad.”
