Thanks, Kenneth Slipka

To the editor:

Baseball Association 191, sponsor of American Legion baseball in Burnsville, has lost our friend and former board of directors leader, Kenneth J. Slipka.

Ken passed away on Oct. 22, 2013. He served as president of our nonprofit board for the last several years in addition to his many other community volunteer efforts.

Ken’s baseball friends and the board of directors would like to recognize his tireless commitment to BA 191 and Burnsville baseball. We thank his family for sharing his time and talents with us.

He was a good man, a terrific friend and is already missed.

Richard McKenny
President/CEO, and the Baseball Association 191 board of directors
