Larry Anderson "rarely missed a game." When he died, he asked that those who wanted to remember him make a donation to the Brattleboro Area Softball Association, Inc. There were many friends and players who did. His wife of sixty years matched those donations. She said he always had supper early during the softball season because he wanted to be at the Park on time.
It is fitting that we place a bench at West River Park in memory of Larry and his favorite summer evening pass time - talking with friends and watching softball games. We hope you enjoy this bench as much as we enjoyed him being a fan of the game and all our teams.
It is also fitting that the stone terrace at WRP was built by Cory Newton and the black locust bench in memory of Larry Anderson was crafted by Steve Robinson. Both of these artisans have been participants in our softball league.
