ONE PLAYERS RETIRED. ANOTHER SAYS GOODBYE TO A GOOD FRIEND

1 min read

On the left is Darren Colbourne who was Frank Humber’s (Frank on right) catcher for 40 plus years.

 

Thursday night Frank Humber pitched his last game for the Hawks in Corner Brook senior baseball. It was a tremendous career for a gentleman who saw his career take him from Corner Brook to the US.

Humber went to Wake Forest College in the US and later played for the Los Angeles Dodger’s AA ball team. He also pitched for Canada in the Olympics.

Frank realized, I guess, that he wouldn’t make it to the Majors and came home which was a big win for the Corner Brook Baseball Association.

One player in Corner Brook senior baseball who will miss Frank Humber is Darren Colbourne. You see Darren was Franks catcher for 40 plus years in the Corner Brook senior league and also in provincial playdowns. They could be called the dynamic duo of Corner Brook Baseball.
