Terry Walliser has been recognized for his contributions to Estevan Minor Baseball over the past 14 years, as he was chosen to throw the first pitch at the opening ceremonies for the provincial Mosquito AAA baseball championships that were held in Estevan.
Walliser's involvement with minor baseball started in 2001, as he helped out with the mosquito AA team that won a silver medal at provincials in Estevan. His son was on that team.
“Terry has been part of Estevan minor ball ever since,” said minor baseball president Kent Phillips.
Walliser has coached house teams from the mosquito to the midget age groups. He spent many weekends travelling to tournaments. He has also volunteered at provincial and western Canadian tournaments that Estevan has hosted.
Walliser has also helped out with improvements to Luscar Park, and the revitalization of Lynne Prime Park, where his carpentry skills came in handy.
Phillips said Walliser is known for his passion for youth baseball, and his desire to finish a job.
