ARCADIA AMERICAN LITTLE LEAGUE
Roger L. Gewecke RIP
Arcadia American Little League celebrates the life of Roger L. Gewecke, who passed away on June 30, 2014 in Arcadia, where he had lived for the past 55 years. Coach Gewecke and his wife Barbara supported Arcadia American Little League and its predecessor, Arcadia Coast Little League, with unrivaled passion. With fervent backing from daughter Ellen (now 50) and wife Barbara, Coach Gewecke managed his three sons during their Little League years, starting with Roger Jr. (now 53) in 1972 and ending with Steve (now 47) from 1976-1979. In between, Coach Gewecke also managed his son Robert (now 52) at the same fine fields we play on today. Coach Gewecke’s son Steve remains active with our league, and Steve’s son (Roger Sr.’s Grandson) Kellen is a perennial all star player who will enter his twelve year old campaign next Spring. Coach Gewecke won Tournament of Champion, District and Section titles for our league in the 1970s. Many of the banners you see above the Windsor Field bleachers resulted from Coach Gewecke’s efforts. Coach Gewecke left behind a long legacy of admirers, including current coaches in this league that played for Coach Gewecke more than 35 years ago. Coach Gewecke taught that you could compete and play hard-nosed baseball with respect, dignity and class. His lessons resonate loudly at Windsor Field 40 years later.
