From Calgary Longhorns:
It’s with great sadness that I announce the passing of Wayne Leitch. Wayne was a original Longhorn and instrumental in starting the team in 1993. Not only was he one of the best players to ever play in the FMBA, he was a outstanding teammate and friend. He brought is college mentality to every game, and when you needed a big hit you wanted Wayne at the plate. His drag bunts were always perfect and no one could delay steal like Wayne. He always thought about other people first and was the most unselfish person I knew. He will be dearly missed but never forgotten. Number 4 will live on forever. I speak for everyone when I say THANK YOU FOR BEING MY FRIEND, TEAMMATE, WE LOVE YOU. Rest in Peace my friend.
