Peter Baldwin 1941-2014

dresden_indoor picIt is with sadness that the DCB has to announce that Peter Baldwin, a highly respected and well-liked umpire in Germany, passed away towards the end of 2014 at the age of 73. The DCB expresses its sincere condolences to his wife, Connie, son Paul and other members of the family and friends in their great loss.

Peter, who, on retirement, moved from England to live in NRW, played an important part as an umpire in German domestic and international cricket. He umpired over the years in his region, in inter-regional games and in German 50 over national championship finals. And in international cricket, he was always ready to travel large distances to lend support, particularly to youth and women’s cricket, whether it be in Munich, Kiel or Berlin. Peter also turned out regularly to officiate in the more hectic world of domestic and international indoor cricket. With another hat on, he was the DCB’s Travel Officer at the European U17 tournament held in NRW in 2008. Weiterlesen
