William B. Gorman

Bill Gorman, 87, of Brea, Calif., died May 9, 2023 due to heart failure.

     Retiring from Senior Softball USA play in 2013, Bill was known to many for the numerous SSUSA sponsored international trips he attended.

     “Bill was a great ambassador for our sport, competing in international tournaments in Italy, Japan, China, Taiwan, Ireland, Scotland, Germany and Mexico on Senior Softball USA teams,” said Terry Hennessy, SSUSA’s chief executive officer. “Bill had a great bat – and an even better sense of humor.”

     Bill played baseball at Purdue University and entered the real estate brokerage industry after college. He’s remembered as a leader in both real estate and softball. “Bill helped organize our Over-The-Line softball practice group in 2000 and played in Long Beach until about 2019, when he was 83 years old,” according to his friend, Jim Hansen.

     Bill played with the SoCal Patriots 70s, Thousand Oaks 70s, Gold Coast 75s, Sunshine Boys 75s, and Top Gun Jets 80s, all from California.
