I have had the pleasure of knowing Mike Dove since I started playing Senior softball in 1996. Mike was nothing but a class act, a true gentleman on and off the field.
Our prayers are with Mike's wife, family and friends during this saddest of times.

I would like to send my condolences to Mike's family. I got to know Mike by playing against him in many World tournaments. He was indeed a "class" act, a extraordinary ball player and a true gentlemen. He will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.

I have truly lost a great friend and former teammate. The first time I saw Mike was at my very first senior national tornament. I was in awe of the little guy playing left field for Betty and Jakes out of Md. Mike covered the area like a blanket, climbed fences and threw bullets to second base. He was as hard an out as there was in the game and he was named MVP in that my first national. The thing I will remember most about Mike was his close personal relationship with his Savior, Jesus Christ. Mike was at peace knowing he was going to a better place and I so look forward to having anohter game with him in the near future. Two years ago I pitched to Mike when he was too weak to play but his teammates gave him an AB. Both teams cheered when he hit his patented soft liner between 1st and 2nd. What a lovely man, true friend and a man always concerned about others. Each time I called over the past couple of years he always asked how my mom was doing before he ever acknowledged his own cancer. That was Mike!
