John Anspach’s wife passes away

Carol Anspach, wife of long-time Cuyahoga Falls High baseball coach and current Cuyahoga Falls Amateur Association coordinator John Anspach, passed away Tuesday, March 7.

As a Class G manager and CFABA board member because I was Class H president for more than a decade, I spent a lot of time working with John, who often would assign children with difficulties to my team because he knew I would try to help them.

This was in the days when Glen Winsett and Al Coy were the “founding fathers” of the organization.

Carol and John’s son, David, played baseball on another team when I managed the Cougars and later Cameros in the Class G league for 11 and 12 year olds.
