Dan Bodary inducted to the CIF Southern Section Coaches Hall of Fame

Lompoc Friends and Family,

As some of you may know, on October 14, 2015, Dan Bodary was inducted into the CIF Southern Section Coaches Hall of Fame. He was honored to accept this recognition on behalf of his former players, the Lompoc baseball community, and the fantastic city of Lompoc. 

It is with great pride that he thinks about the Lompoc baseball community and all of those who support it. This includes hardworking individuals who are passionate about baseball, their parents who have continuously supported and helped mold their children into excellent athletes with good moral character, programs like Little League and Babe Ruth that allow these athletes to flourish, the school district and private donors who create and maintain a high school baseball program that continues to dominate, and the great fans of Lompoc who tirelessly show their support year after year.

He was honored to have felt encouragement from the Lompoc baseball community during his time as coach, from 1967-2001. It was a unique and special period that many of us remember fondly. In celebration, Coach Bodary and family will be holding a reunion party on January 28th, 2017 at 6pm at the Elks Club. All players, coaches, managers, Diamond Club supporters, and community members who were involved with Lompoc baseball during that era are invited to celebrate with them. 

The party will be limited to 300 guests and tickets are now available by going to brownpapertickets.com and under the search area put Dan Bodary Baseball Event. This will take you to the purchasing screen for the tickets. The menu includes baseball themed appetizers and a no-host bar. Guest speakers as well as an open mic will provide entertainment during the celebration. If you would like to send Coach Bodary some kind of special note his e-mail for this event is bodaryerabaseball@yahoo.com.

Please spread the word to those who shared an important role in this exciting era of Lompoc baseball. We can’t wait to celebrate!
