THE 8th ANNUAL SAEZ/ SKARBEK MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT AND SHOWCASE
SWFL INVITATIONAL-June 1-2 (updated)
IS IN HONOR OF THE MEMORIES OF
BILL SKARBEK AND LUIS SAEZ.
BILL SKARBEK WAS ONE OF THE ORIGINAL FOUNDERS OF SWFL BASEBALL. HE WORKED TIRELESSLY TO MAKE SURE THAT HE HELPED YOUNG MEN REACH THEIR GOALS OF PLAYING COLLEGE OR PROFESSIONAL BASEBALL.
LUIS SAEZ GREW UP PLAYING BASEBALL AT SOUTH FT MYERS LITTLE LEAGUE BEFORE GOING ON TO STAR AT SOUTH FT MYERS HIGH SCHOOL. HE WAS LOVED BY TEAMMATES AND FRIENDS. HE WAS THE SON OF LONG TIME SWFL BASEBALL COACH PETE SAEZ.
BOTH MEN WILL BE MISSED BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN BY THE SWFL BASEBALL FAMILY.
Bill Skarbek was one of the founding members of SWFL Baseball with Dave Fore and John Cedarburg. Bill, a long time FBI agent, was a champion of youth baseball and handled all aspects of the SWFL program during his tenure. Bill is survived by his wife Selina and 3 children. Bill’s grandson, Ridge, played on the SWFL 2020 team this past summer. Bill would have been proud of his grandsons attitude and play ability.
Luis Saez is survived by long time SWFL Coach Pete, mother Jessica Lynn and siblings Danny, Carlos and Elenis. Luis played in the SWFL program and always brought enthusiasm to the game he loved. We’re honored to commemorate these two individuals and their contribution to the SWFL program with a vibrant baseball tournament.
