In a span of just about two weeks, the Lefty Grove youth baseball league has lost a pair of esteemed and involved individuals.

Bob Zinn, who performed maintenance duties for 35 years as equipment and field manager, died Jan. 9 at age 64.

Wanda Finch, Lefty Grove's administrative assistant, a former member of the board of directors and coach, died Friday evening at age 56.

"I'm almost speechless about it," Lefty Grove Commissioner Scott Ford said about the two deaths in the short time span. "It's hard to understand how these things happen, how you lose two really good people in that sort of space."
