SOMBA Lorne Raymond Bursary

SOMBA is proud to announce the establishment of the Lorne Raymond Bursary for SOMBA players graduating from high school and going on to attend post-secondary education at an accredited institution. This Bursary is named in honor of Lorne Raymond, our Umpire-in-Chief who has served SOMBA for many years as a Coach, Board Member, and Umpire.

Successful applicants will be SOMBA members in good standing who have demonstrated proficiency as a baseball player or umpire for three or more years and have a minimum 68% average in their grade 12 year.
