Knightstown Optimist Baseball & Softball
Barry Elzey was a longtime Optimist Club volunteer who devoted countless hours working with hundreds of children from Knightstown and the surrounding communities. He died at the age of 40 on Sept. 14, 1989. Elzey first joined the Knightstown Optimist Club in 1971 and worked as a volunteer umpire and coach. He took over the youth baseball and softball programs as director in 1973, after spearheading the construction of a second diamond just south of the original field. He was best known for his unselfish work on behalf youth in the community through the Optimist Club. He directed and managed programs in baseball, softball, flag football, basketball and soccer. Elzey helped form the baseball and softball programs in Knightstown, and dedicated most of his spare time throughout the summer to the kids in those programs. Under his leadership, the Knightstown youth league program became one of the most respected and copied in the state. By 1975, the Knightstown Little League program consisted of 12 teams in the 10-12 age bracket, and the girls softball program had grown to 16 teams. During the baseball and softball seasons, Elzey spent an average of 16-18 hours per day at the ball diamonds.brbrWhen Elzey became president of the local Optimist Club in 1972, the organization underwent a period of growth never before seen. Through that growth the club was able to accomplish a steady improvement in all of the youth league programs that hundreds of kids participate in today. brbrAll proceeds received from each season and tournaments go back into improving the park and continuing out Barry Elzey's mission of no child turned away. Thank you to all of the participating teams and volunteers for making each season a very positive experience for these children.br br Please send any questions, comments, or concerns to [email protected]
