Steve Brewer, a Past-President of the Kickapoo Baseball Booster, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, March 13. Steve was an a great fan of baseball and worked for many years as a volunteer supporting baseball in the Springfield area. After his time at Kickapoo, “Brew” volunteered for many years on the board of the Springfield Area Baseball Association, organizing both the summer baseball leagues and the Springfield Holiday Tournament held over the 4th of July each year.
Steve was also a great player. He was a catcher and team captain on 1979 Hillcrest Hornets and the Hillcrest Merchants Missouri State Championship teams.
Steve loved baseball. He loved Kickapoo baseball. An area at our field at Kickapoo carries his name sake: “Brew’s Roost,” an area were Brew watched many baseball games.
Steve leaves behind his wife Susan and 2 son’s, Dusty and Lane, daughter-in-law Madina, a grandson Kaden, and many, many friends.
Please keep Steve’s family in your prayers.
