Troy May, owner of the Oshawa Dodgers of the senior Intercouty Baseball League, died on Wednesday from injuries received in a weekend car crash.
May was 39.
“The entire Intercounty Baseball League family is saddened by today’s news,” said IBL Commissioner Jim Rooney. “Troy was very passionate about baseball and his vision was an important ingredient in the success of the Oshawa Dodgers and the IBL. We pass along our deepest condolences to Troy’s family and join in their grief for the loss of a good friend.”
May founded the Dodgers in 2002 and was the field manager during their first four years before stepping down to become the third base coach this season. He was also an active member of the IBL and was president of Oshawa Minor Baseball.
May coached baseball for more than 20 years, winning more than 600 games. He guided the Oshawa Junior Legionnaires for nine seasons, including 1999 when they won the Junior Elimination Tournament and became the first junior team in Oshawa’s history to go the Canadian National Championships.
