Throughout this weekend, the Futures Collegiate Baseball League is proud to honor the memory of a special member of our family, Adam Keenan.
Adam played baseball at Franklin Pierce University and UMass Lowell and was a member of the FCBL’s Seacoast Mavericks during the league’s inaugural 2011 season. On June 6, 2011, Adam passed away suddenly after suffering a rare, undiagnosed heart condition known as Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy, or ARVC.
He was an amazing individual that exhibited sportsmanship, enthusiasm, and passion for the game of baseball, and his legacy lives on through the Adam Keenan Foundation and the Adam Keenan Sportsmanship and Scholarship Award that the league gives out at the end of each season.
Based in the Merrimack Valley, the Adam Keenan Foundation’s mission is to ensure that athletic facilities and public spaces have an AED available.
The foundation is accepting donations at ballparks throughout the Futures League during this special Adam Keenan Weekend and over the next week. The Keenan Family was honored during a pre-game ceremony at Nashua's Historic Holman Stadium on June 5, with Adam's father, Michael, throwing out the ceremonial first pitch!
