Riley Barrington

We recently received the news that one of our own, Riley Barrington is fighting a battle against cancer. A Go Fund Me page (Link below) has been set up to give Riley some financial assistance during his treatment. The response has been fantastic, receiving donations from the Rover, Scout and Baseball communities. Riley has said he is “blown away by the generosity”, but this comes as no surprise to the Cronulla Sharks Baseball community. Riley’s contribution to the club and baseball in general has been enormous.

We wish him all the best and look forward to seeing him back behind the dish.

News has come through to me that Riley Barrington has been diagnosed with cancer … and now has that all too familiar fight on his hands. Worse than any questioning of a strike call … worse than an angry dirt kicking manager … this one is real.

To this end there are several ways to help – a fund raising website has been set up and our club will be having its own fund-raising activities as well.

I’ve personally known Riley for the 14 or so years I have been associated with Sharks and have seen him go from being a young junior umpire in the wake of his father Peter, to gaining experience and confidence as his own kind of man and umpire, to being our clubs Umpiring Coordinator (assisting with the development of countless numbers of ‘blues’ myself included). His umpiring career has seen him go to ABL level and beyond recently being involved in an International tournament where he is highly regarded in world Baseball Umpiring circles.

So, it is with many best wishes that I write this to him and for him. Fight and fight hard – you are a young fit man and our individual and collective thoughts are with you. We have had others in the club be humbled by this disease and our love at this time goes with you - be strong and get better young man … life is still all in front of you.
