As some of you may have heard over the weekend, former BVB player Rod LaForme passed away this past weekend unexpectedly. He had most recently played in our league with Mike Gionas and the Braves.
From what I understand he died in his sleep from a heart attack.
He was one of the most knowledgeable and enthusiastic guys I ever had the privilege of being around. Whenever you saw him at a diamond, you could see how engaged he was and his personality could single-handedly lift the spirits of whatever team he played on.
He wasn't even 40 yet which should be an eye opener to many (as it has been to me).
He is survived by his 2 sons and his daughter all under 12.
A Gofundme site has been set up to help out Rod's children. Please use the link below and donate to help support them in this time of great sorrow;
On behalf of the entire BVB Family, we would like to offer our most sincere condolences to his family and those who were closest to him.
He will be missed.
