R. G. (Bobby) Crowe

R. G. (Bobby) Crowe retired as a ballplayer at age 37 but his enthusiasm, commitment and contribution to sport is reflected in successful achievements as an athlete and coach.

Bobby involved himself in all aspects of the game of softball, and at all competitive levels, over a span of more than 40 years. From 1941 through 1961 he played and coached City League softball, a standout second baseman on eight City League championship teams. He earned the Pat Calladine Memorial Trophy in 1957, and in both 1959 and 1960 was a player-coach of the Ontario Int. A champions.

After retiring in 1961, he spent nine seasons coaching youth and junior teams, then took on the added challenge of coaching Lakefield Kingdon Lumber women’s team to four Ontario titles. Bobby also has earned wide-spread recognition as a top five-pin bowler with two Ontario championships and as a horseshoe player with four Ontario titles to his credit.

A player who led by example, he was popular and respected by his peers and fans alike.
