Concord American Mourns the Passing
Little League Family,
With a heavy heart I write this. This is truly one of the saddest
messages I have ever had to write.
Today I was notified of the passing of a long time member of our Little
League Family. Mike Galindo passed away today. He has been involved with Concord
American since the early 90's as a Board Member and Manager. Mike was the
current Vice President of Inter-league and Manager of the Junior Division
Cardinals. As a coach he was the best. I loved to watch him encourage the kids on
his teams from the third base coaching box. He was such a huge and positive influence for so many kids. The kids
learned so well being motivated by his enthusiasm.
As a Board Member, in Board meetings he was always the voice of calm
reasoning and experience. But most of all he was a good friend to all of us that knew him, a great
father to his three boy's Chris, Kevin and Cory and a loving husband to his
wife Kim. I want to say so much about Mike but the shock of this sad news has made
it hard for me to concentrate. I can't express how much Mike will be
missed. I for one am a better person for having known him.
This Season is Dedicated to the Memory of Mike Galindo, The Concord
American Flag will fly at half mast in his honor. When details of the services are announced I will forward the information
