DAVID "CHILLY" CHILCOTE


A few words from Matt Chilcote;

"It is with a broken heart that I tell all of you that my dad, David Chilcote (Chilly) has passed away. He suffered a sudden heart attack last night while in his home. His death comes as a shock and is obviously heart breaking to his family and his baseball family. My dads first love was the game of baseball. He never lost his little boy personality when he stepped on a ball field. My dad considered all of you his family and the only thing he said was hard about moving recently was the leaving behind the friendships with you guys. The greatest gift he has left behind for me was not just enjoying the game, or playing the game with reckless abandon. But loving the game so deeply and putting it out there for all to see. He had the absolute time of his life while sharing the game of baseball with all of you. I'm sorry and crushed to be writing this but if my dad could speak through me I believe it would be to carry on his memory on a baseball field. Remember the passion and fun he tried to bring to the game and know that life is short so slide head first, steal third, and swing hard 3-0! Love all of you guys"

The 2014 WCFBA League will commence play in March and will continue on close to a bi-weekly basis into October. Four to six teams will fill out the league.  In the past, A's and Giants teams operated separately, but beginning in 2010, the A’s and Giants players were combined into one league draft.  The concept of A's teams and Giants teams is no more and pool players will be assigned to the most appropriate team on a given week. Those who wish to play full-time should respond to an email request in early February.  A draft will take place in early March to pick the teams.  Part-time or 'pool' players should respond to the pool coordinator's request by Thursday at noon of a given play week to get on the priority list. Open roster spots will be filled each week from these pool player signups.
