Tribute to Adam Sigler, son of MSBL Founder & President, Steve Sigler
Adam Sigler, 41-year old son of Men's Senior Baseball League Founder & President, Steve Sigler, passed away in November due to complications of a brain aneurysm.
For those of us fortunate enough to work with Steve & his youngest son, Brian, we know how close the family is to each other and we offer our sympathy & condolences. The Siglers are the number one reason why we are still able to play the game we love. Without their leadership at a national level, we wonder where our league would be today, if it would even exist. Please take a moment to read the attached tribute to Adam by clicking HERE.
