Baseball Victoria is saddened to hear of the passing of Michael Trevorah, a beloved life member of Cheltenham Baseball Club, at the age of 66.
Michael was elected as a Life Member of Cheltenham Baseball Club in 1985 for his many years of service as a player, coach and an administrator where he served as the Chairman of Selectors as well as in senior executive roles including Chairman of the Board.
Michael started his baseball career with the old Cheltenham Baseball Club prior to the amalgamation in 1972 and was an outstanding catcher and hitter throughout his senior playing career between 1973 to 1985. In 1975, playing in Division 1, Michael batted .411 including a 6-hit game against Footscray which remains the club record for a game day performance to this day. Michael was elected as one of “Finest Fifty” players at Cheltenham's Century Celebrations in 2014.
Following his retirement as a player, Michael continued to be heavily involved over many years coaching senior men and women’s teams as well as junior teams at all levels, always with considerable success.
Michael recently celebrated his 50 years association with the cub and his passion and commitment to the club and his unwavering support of all members was clearly evident to all those who attended. He cared really deeply about Chelteneham Baseball Club and all those within it and he will be very sadly missed.
Cheltenham Baseball Club extends condolences to his family - Lyn, Shannyn, Dylan and Abbey and his many friends throughout Victorian baseball.
