It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Peter Schmidt.
Words cannot express the enormity of the loss to baseball, to me personally and to Hills. It will take some time for Hills to come to terms to operate without his wisdom, Business acumen and overall expertise in a number of areas.
Peter has been our President for 13 years and remained in that position until his death, despite his ill health. During his Presidency, he significantly improved the Policies for the playing of our sport significantly.
He always displayed a great passion and best interests of the Sport and was always looking at the bigger picture. He was certainly a 'can do' person, full of integrity.
With Peter's passing it is the end of an era and there is now a void in Hills that can never be replaced. He will always be warmly remembered and sadly missed.
To his wife Jackie and his sons, Russell and Ryan, we extend our deepest sympathy.
Peter’s wife Jackie and sons Russell and Ryan are inviting all who knew Peter to a wake to celebrate his life The wake will be held at 1.30pm on Friday 14th July at the Glenorie RSL Club.
For catering purposes please email Jackie to indicate if you would like to attend.

There will be no formal funeral service.
