Honorary Chair Confirmed for 2014
Jan 29, 2014, 10:21 pm

MLB Alumnus John Upham - Honorary Chair for 2014  

 

John Upham of Windsor, who has spent a life-time as a participant and leader in baseball in south-western Ontario, will serve as the Honorary Chair for the 2014 Sports & Scholarships golf tournament.

 

 

    The 25th annual event will be hosted at Pike Lake Golf Centre on Thursday Juyl 10, 2014.

   John was born in Windsor and as a youth played baseball in the Windsor Jaycee League, balancing the summer sport with varsity basketball and hockey at Assumption High School.

   In 1959, eighteen-year-old John turned down “full ride” university baseball scholarship offers from Michigan State, Michigan, Western Michigan and the University of Detroit. Instead, John accepted the Philadelphia Phillies lucrative bonus to sign a professional baseball contract as an amateur free agent.

   John played nine years of professional baseball at all levels, and had a brief stint in the Major Leagues with the Chicago Cubs. In his minor league career, he played 769 games and fashioned an impressive .293 batting average.

   Following his playing days, John commenced a 29 -year career as a high school teacher in English and Math. As well, he started coaching youth baseball in Windsor and his leadership skills were noted and he became a pitching coach with the Canadian National Youth Team. In 1988, John was the Offensive Co-ordinator/3rd Base Coach for Team Canada at the Seoul Olympics in Korea and the world championships in Italy. By 1992, John was managing Team Canada at the Pan-Am games in Cuba.

   In 1995 he was inducted into the Windsor / Essex County Sports Hall of Fame, and in 2005, was similarily inducted as part of a basketball team into the University of Windsor Sports Hall of Fame.

   Married in October 1962, John and his wife Carol celebrated their 51st    wedding anniversary last October. They have two daughters Tracey and Heather and two grand-daughters Alexa, age 16 and Thalia, 13.

   John’s current hobbies include coaching (baseball, hockey, basketball and swimming over the years), reading, attending movies and vacationing with Carol.

   Sports and Scholarships welcomes John in adding to the success of this year’s “Quarter Century Milestone” golf tournament.
