- Commenced playing under 13's in the season of 1972 / 73;

- 492 games played;

- During early years of commencing in Seniors, coached U13's for 2 years in the early 80's ( the era of Andrew Sullivan, Paul Linkevics & Craig Mortimore just to name a few ( following recommendation & support from David Halliday;

- Commencing in the 2001 / 02 season until completion of 2008 / 09 season, Ian had a significant involvement with coaching junior teams ranging from U12's through to U18's. During this time, Ian was either Head Coach or Assisted with the likes of Adam Lodge, Peter Wyatt, Shane Nicholson & Craig Mortimore. A successful era of Junior baseball for our Club where finals were regularly achieved as well as the ultimate success with 4 premierships;

- Many of the Junior players during this era have gone on to greater success with State & Australian representation as well as being the current era of Division 1 players;

- Representation on the Board as Treasurer for 2 years in the late 80's;

- Representation on the Board as Junior Director for 5 years during his junior coaching years while sons Ryan & Jarrod were involved;

- Strong family connection with the Club with both sons Ryan & Jarrod being involved from juniors, brother Garry associated for over 40 years and having played 500+ games and parents Geoff & Joy having been longstanding loyal supporters of the club; I feel with the above achievements, Ian strongly deserves acceptance as a Life Member being a passionate and loyal supporter of the Woodville District Baseball Club.

John Ryan 1936 - 2017

It is with great sadness that we share with our members that John Ryan has passed away. John was a highly respected member of Woodville with many years of service.

John started playing with the club in 1953 and played a total of 251 games including 70 'A' grade games.

His involvement with the committee included 5 years as Secretary from 1963 to 1967.

As club coach for seasons 1965 to 1975/76 and 1986/87 he inspired many players to improve their games to high standards culminating in two  'A' grade' premierships and quite a few players who represented the club at State and Australian level.

He was granted Life Membership of the club in 1967 and inducted into the Klaebe Club in 2001 in recognition of his services.

At the recent Capps Medal night hewas awarded Life Membership of the SABL for his contribution to baseball including coaching assistance to many state sides.

As a great bloke and with an enormous knowledge of the game he was respected throughout the baseball fraternity and will  be sorely missed by all who knew him.

Our sincere condolences go to Helen and Families.

In accordance with the families wishes a Private Service has been held.
