Lorraine Dunn recently announced her retirement from her volunteer role as national Co-ordinator for the Council of Australian Baseball Scorers (CABS). It is timely to recognise her service to the baseball community.
Lorraine previously served as one of the three CABS Technical Commissioners and worked tirelessly to support the CABS aim of cultivating and advancing Australian baseball scoring. She was recognised with Life Membership for her service.
Lorraine has officiated at ABL and Claxton Shield games, National Youth Championships as Tournament Scoring Co-coordinator and scored in countless local and state baseball games. In 2011 Baseball Australia (BA) recognised Lorraine’s contribution over 40 years to Australian baseball when she was named BA Official of the Year at the Diamond Awards Ceremony in Queensland.
Along with husband Danny, Lorraine has been actively involved in the Goodwood Baseball Club and in 2009 was also awarded life membership. Son Matt is a 600+ games Division 1 veteran and their grandchildren now actively participate in the club baseball program.
Lorraine is well known to all Baseball South Australia (BSA) clubs through her previous role as the S.A. Baseball League Operations Co-coordinator. Lorraine served as front of house for the BSA and among other critical tasks managed the arduous responsibility involved in season fixturing for all grades. Lorraine was an early supporter, advocate and facilitator in implementing electronic scoring and statistics compilation for South Australia.
SABSA members know Lorraine as a stalwart champion for due recognition of the important role scorers provide as officials of our beloved game. In serving SABSA in virtually every capacity, Lorraine has assisted many scorers to flourish and become more proficient at what we do. Again, SABSA recognised her service with Life Membership.
We all appreciate Lorraine’s hard work over many years. We are grateful to her for sharing her experience and providing us with assistance and guidance. We continue to value her support and friendship and wish her and her family the very best.
