on Little League, I am requesting that Chapman Park Field I be named Steve MacchiaField. In Oc±r, 2017 the Board of Directors of East Fullenon Little League voted unanimously to supportrenaming of the field.Steve Macchia begm volunteering with East Fullerton Little League in the early 2000's. He coached several hisson's tearns as a volunteer from the T-ball division (five-year-olds) to the Junior division (13 and 14-year-olds).During that time Steve also volunteered as a board rnember for the league. He took on the very tedious role offield coordinator was responsible for the maintenance and preparation of ail the playing fields at ChapmanPark. Steve spent thousands of hours on tir fields watering, mowing, and manicuring them. Because of Steve'swork on the fields, thousands Of children in the East Fullerton community were able to enjoy a clean aryl safebaseball field to play on.When Steve's Wn entered high school, he continued to serve the East Fullerton community. Though he Was nolonger coaching or on the Board of Directors, Steve was still seen out on the field at Chapman Park watering,trimming, and mowing. Many times teams would u•rive at park and find the fields prepped for games. Stevehad taken time to prepare fields just to help.Around 2008 Steve began to umpire baseball games for Ea.q Fullerton Little League. His knowledge andof the game allowed him to be one of the most consistent and knowledgeable umpires on the field.He always took the time to educate the players, and the coaches, about the game when umpiring. He laterbecune an umpire trainer and helped develop many young 1%npires. Many are still officiating today.In 2016, Steve was diagnosed with advanced stage liver carrer. Even though he was undergoing chemotherapyhe still wanted to be on the field. When he was feeling strong enough he would umpire games. Steve alwayssaid that being on the field was like therapy to him. Chaprnan Park was truly his happy place. Even when Stevehad no energy to umpire he still wanted to help by doing evaluations of younger umpires to give them feedbackmd n*ntor them to improve.Attachment 1In September, 2017 Steve lost his battle with cancer. His passing was a huge loss to the East Fullenon LittleLeagtr and the baseball community in Fullerton.
