It is with sadness that we advise of the passing of Cardinals Life Member and long time club stalwart Jim Handley on Friday morning 21 April.
Jim had recently suffered a heart attack from which he was unable to recover. Jim's family was with him throughout.
Our thoughts and support go out to Jackie, Blake, Mitch and family. Jim was a keen supporter of and contributor to baseball in the Illawarra region, having served on the IBL executive over a number of years. Jim also served on the Cardinals senior & junior committees over many years, helped coach teams, played and contributed on the field and helped with off field activities with the ground and canteen.
Jim's presence, wit and humour will be sorely missed by all of us who knew him.
All club teams wore black armbands for the round 4 fixtures on 22 & 23 April to mark the passing of Jim, and held a minutes silence before each grade.
The funeral has been arranged for Friday, 5 May at 10am at Hansen & Cole at Kembla Grange.
