On August 18, 2020 my Good Friend Russell Lacy succumbed to pancreatic cancer after a four month battle. The N. Idaho Softball world has lost a very valuable leader. Russell was the Coeur d' Alene Softball Association President for approximately 10 years. For the past seven years Russell has taken the roll of Evaluation Chairman for N. Idaho High School Softball. Russell also was the N. Idaho Softball Rules Enturpeter. Russell had achieved an ISF status as well as Slow Pitch Elite status for USA Softball. Russell was not a selfish man when it came to softball. He devoted all the time needed to complete our mission which was to train softball officials. N. Idaho softball officials will sorely miss Russell Lacy.
District 1 High School Softball Commissioner
