Bob Mitchell Memorial

As some of you have heard, Bob Mitchell passed away on Tuesday, September 19, 2017. Bob is survived by his wife Patti, son Tyler, and daughter Alexis. Bob was a long time Claremont Little League (CLL) parent, coach and supporter of CLL.  Bob coached his son Tyler from 2000 to 2007 at CLL.  For the last several years, Bob had remained a fixture as a rostered coach in the Minors and Majors divisions at CLL, as well as an All Star Coach most recently in 2015 and 2017 coaching the age level 12s.  More importantly, Bob was willing to help any kid at CLL with baseball skills.  He gave pitching advice to kids of all ages and skill level. He also talked to the kids like young adults; always making eye contact and asking them simply “How are you doing?”  Bob spent many Saturdays in the spring watching games at College Park and advising players, all while enjoying a meal from the Snack Bar and having conversation with us all on baseball knowledge from the MLB to Little League levels. He was always willing to do what it takes to make our league a success and to ensure all the kids had baseball memories, whether that was via coaching, working on pitching mounds, scorekeeping a game, or dragging the fields. 
 
The funeral service will be held Saturday September 30th - 9:30am at Todd’s Memorial Chapel in Claremont located at 325 North Indian Hill Blvd. Viewing will be held on Friday night Sept 29th from 5:00-8:00 pm at Todd Memorial Chapel as well.  As Coach Steve Retzlaff has said “Lets Fill the Place Up”.

CLL has gathered donations for a flower arrangement and/or donation to his family on behalf of all CLL families (Past, present, and future).  Thank you to all who donated.
 
On behalf of the CLL Board of Directors and all families at CLL, “Coach Bob will not be forgotten!” I personally promise you his memory will be part of CLL forever.
