September 26, 2019

Richard Faust was a participant in many events around the Baltimore Orioles Fantasy Baseball Camp from 1995 until his unfortunate passing in 2019.  He was a very good baseball player, a very good teammate and a very funny person to be around.  Most importantly, he was our friend.  

 

Nicknamed "The Rev," he preached to us daily about everything imaginable, from how to hit a baseball to how look good in a uniform to how to have fun in everything you do to how to enjoy life to the fullest .  He was passionate about life.  He loved his family and his friends.  And he loved good times.

 

He helped organize the annual Baltimore Orioles Cooperstown Tournament and won the 2014 Championship.

 

After his passing, the Baltimore Orioles Fantasy Camp and Dream Week fraternity wanted to do something to honor our baseball buddy at the home of baseball - Cooperstown.  Working with the Friends of Doubleday, we raised $11,025 (as of November 5, 2019) for improvements at Doubleday Field.  A bench will be placed at the field inscribed with a tribute to “The Rev.”  Each contributor also received a patch honoring “The Rev” that they can wear on their uniform when they play at Doubleday.  

 

Sincerest thanks to the Friends of Doubleday and the many friends who contributed to the memorial for Richard "The Rev" Faust.
