I found out today that my friend Barry Grumman, head coach of the Newport Riptide organization has passed away. One of Barry’s daughters, Sasha, played for me when I coached at Newport Harbor which is when I met Barry. Barry has always given me respect, support, and encouragement and has been a good person to discuss softball with. I appreciate the advice he’s given me over the years. Barry has helped me to be a better coach. My prayers are with the family in their loss. RIP Barry, and thank you.
