One of Outlook’s own sports officials collected some impressive hardware earlier this month when Trevor Drury was bestowed with the Dick Willis Memorial Award for Umpire of the Year at the fall convention of Baseball Canada held in Mont Sainte-Anne, Quebec from November 7-10.
The Dick Willis Memorial Award recognizes Canada’s official of the year for their outstanding contribution and umpiring of the game of baseball.
Info from Baseball Canada during the award ceremony highlighted Drury’s dedication and commitment to the sport, and his professionalism in his role as an official:
A pillar of the Baseball Saskatchewan umpire program for over 20 years, Trevor’s tireless work has been felt across the province, country and internationally at all levels of the game. He has been actively involved as a clinic instructor, evaluator, committee member, mentor for the new provincial supervisor, and an on-field umpire. He has travelled all over Saskatchewan in order to serve as an umpire of the sport of baseball, and he has regularly worked games in the WCBL and also umpired at various provincial championship tournaments. A veteran of numerous National Championship events, Trevor has also represented Canada at 3 international events and is an active member of Baseball Canada’s Umpire Program. In 2019, Trevor Supervised the Women’s Invitational in Okotoks, Alberta and was handed the gold medal game home plate assignment at the 21U Men’s Championship in Gatineau, Quebec.
This year, the award for Umpire of the Year goes to Trevor Drury from Saskatchewan.
The Outlook, as well as the entire sporting community of Outlook and beyond extends its congratulations to Trevor on this major monumental achievement.
