The softball world lost an icon we all loved listening to at Native tournaments, including our Legends tournament.
Our Koda (friend), Ron Kirkie, made his journey to the Spirit World. Ron spent many, many years doing what he loved, sitting in the very spot in these pics announcing our softball games & teasing around with all the players & fans. We were blessed & honored to have Ron with us in 2018 as our Legends announcer.
Little did we know, it would be his last time holding that mic. We’ll miss seeing you & listening to you at the fields, Koda. You brought many smiles & laughter to countless people at the diamonds & all around Indian country. Tokša aké...we’ll see you again. Sending our deepest condolences & prayers to the Kirkie family. - United Tribes Legends Softball Committee
