PARRSBORO – For decades they watched over baseball and softball activity in this community, and now their names are preserved at Triassic Park ball field.
Bernie Pettigrew and the late Philly Legere now have their names on signs placed on one of the dugouts at the Upper Main Street field. Pettigrew and Trevor Legere, grandson of Philly Legere, were among those on hand for the official unveiling of the signs on June 7.
“A citizen of the town came to us and said they would like you both to be recognized,” councillor Lisa Ward told Pettigrew. “He brought it to council and council approved, so the signs have been put up in recognition of all your support and dedication towards baseball. We greatly appreciate that.”
Pettigrew, who played baseball himself in the United States and spent many years coaching little league in Parrsboro, said it was nice to be appreciated, and said he was glad to see Legere recognized.
