Bill Beshore passed away Tuesday morning, September 29. Bill was a long-time member of the Redwood City Señors Softball Club and an admired and gifted softball player. He played on many tournament teams over the years, including the Redwood City Cardinals, the State Roofing Royals, and the Redwood City Gold Rush. His gifts as a player—strong bat, powerful arm, fast runner with stamina—made him a coveted player for any team. Once he aged enough to be on teams with an infielder up the middle, he played that role with verve and became the most valuable player for the many double plays he would turn in a game.
Bill was known for his competitiveness, his knowledge of the game, and his loyal support as a good teammate. He was also a basketball player and a star in his age group. Bill had been battling cancer and passed away quietly at home with his wife, Marti, near him. Bill was 82. There will likely be a funeral mass with limited attendance, but it is hoped to have a larger gathering with his softball friends to celebrate his years once the pandemic allows it.
