Chris Routledge Memorial Trophy

Donated by Life Member Brian Tink

Inaugurated in 1986-87 to honour the memory of Chris Routledge, who died in a fatal car crash just before Christmas 1986. Chris was an outstanding junior for the Club, and represented the ACT in Australian Championships at every age level: the Under 13s, Under 15s and Under 18s.

At Club level Chris won the Pat Jordan Memorial Trophy for most outstanding junior talent in 1979-80 and became a regular 1st Grade player as an 18 year old during the 1985-86 season.

So that his name would always be remembered, the Club endorsed a perpetual trophy in his honour, to be awarded each year. The simple criterion for the award is that the recipient love his or her baseball and gets and give enormous pleasure by the playing of it.
