After 10 years, Jean-François Blouin is stepping down as president of the Coaticook Minor Baseball Association

BASEBALL. After nearly ten years as president of the Coaticook Minor Baseball Association, Jean-François Blouin has stepped down to take on new challenges at Baseball Estrie.

“Let’s say I took a good look at the little baseball park in Coaticook. I wanted to get involved on another level as well,” he says.

The director in question leaves his functions with a sense of duty accomplished. Over time, he will work on many projects, including a new scoreboard at Laurence Park, changing the uniforms to Rocket colors and installing removable mounds at certain locations. “However, what I am most proud of is keeping ticket costs to a minimum. In ten years, I think it has remained almost the same price. I thought it was important to do that, especially in an environment like Coaticook. In addition, the number of registrations has increased in recent years.

Upon joining the Baseball Estrie organization, Mr. Blouin will serve as Vice President of League and Regulations. “I am going there with a specific goal, which is to protect our young judges. We will not hide it, our officials engage in it, they have been intimidated on several occasions. The game must also remain fun for both our players and the referees. I think working on this issue will improve the fortunes of baseball in Estrie.”

Even if he leaves his role within the Coaticook Minor Baseball Association, the former president shows he wants to keep an eye on activities in Coaticook. “I want to be there again. I believe that I am leaving the organization in good financial shape and, above all, in good hands. Coaticook will always hold a special place for me and the future is bright for this sport,” he concludes.
