Bob Winchell
The softball community lost a dear friend and long time supporter today. Bob Winchell was the Sponsor/manager for the Winchell Clinic teams that played in the 35,40, and 45 age brackets. Many of the players I have met in senior softball talk about the games between their teams and the Winchell teams from the mid 90's and early 2000. The Winchell teams had some great games with Capitol X-ray, Sun Devils, Marodies(sp), and many others. In addition, Bob also sponsored open teams which also had great success. Bob was a chiropractor and treated many players on both his teams and others. He was always willing to help where he could. The greatest accolade that I can give to anyone, is to call them friend. Bob was a true friend.

I played many a game against Winchell's when I was with the Sun Devils and they were all battles. Bob will be missed. Can't tell you how many games I had to remind my pitcher to serve it up to the BIG guys because they were out of HRs.

I do like the story about him having his players return their uniforms after every tourney. What an incentive.

Bob will be missed by all of us that played for him and for his friendship.

Our prayers go out to Linda.
