Lew Oppenheimer was softball in every sense of the word. He was a player, a coach, a coordinator and a sponsor. He gave hundreds of athletes the opportunity to share his passion by sponsoring countless teams often at his own expense. He paid for everything from uniforms, equipment, league fees and even travel costs for his teams. Lew was tragically taken from us in 2011 when he was struck by a car while attending a tournament in Phoenix.
