Muskopf was a founding member of SLABA organization

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of one of our founding members, Jim Muskopf.  Jim passed away on July 5, 2017.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, July 15 at 10am at St. Mary Margaret parish in South St. Louis County off Ringer Road.   A light lunch will follow the service.

Jim was a member of the SLABA Board and served as president for many years.  He ran the Johnny Mac Thunder organization for over 30 years and was a founding member of SLABA in 1988.  Jim was elected to the St. Louis Amateur Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001 and was a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association.

Each year, a volunteer in SLABA is awarded the Muskopf-Sears Award for their service and commitment to the organization.

We are grateful for his contributions to all of amateur baseball in the St. Louis area and we will sincerely miss him.
