Dear Sam Bass Friends,
It is with our most heartfelt feelings and memories that we honor a longtime friend and fan, Harry Hildenbrand with this tournament. Harry passed away on Sunday, October 3rd after a brief illness.
Harry had been a fixture at Sam Bass for many years, and watched hundreds of our kids grow up on the baseball fields. While he had no family in the immediate area, Harry had adopted all of the families at Sam Bass and knew so many of our children by name.
During your participation in this tournament, we would like to invite everyone who knew Harry to take a moment to remember our dear friend who loved our youth and baseball league.
