Charlie Hindley Awarded Sports Official of the Year 2005 at the CDN/NDG Sports Awards Banquet (Awarded 2nd time in 2012)

NDG Baseball Legacy Award 2012 (Bio Included)


If you've hung around NDG Baseball fields long enough, you would have had the pleasure of running into Charlie Hindley. Known on the baseball diamond as an affable and competent umpire. Off the field, he was a gregarious kind hearted man with a larger than life personality. At the same time he was a man who was down to earth and very humble. A set of qualities that are unique in this day and age.

In fact, I would hazard a guess that their are very few people who knew that Charlie gave of his time freely, from the mid-1990's until he moved from Montreal in 2008, once a week to clean the Loyola Chalet from top to bottom.. He did this solely so the kids would have a proper facility to change and that their parents would have a clean place to frequent. So why would Charlie do this? Because that's the kind of guy Charlie was. He was a very community minded type of guy.  

For those of us who knew Charlie he could probably be best described as a gifted story-teller. Charlie always had a good story to tell and we would gather around him like little children soaking in the every detail of his tales of baseball follies and what have you's from yesteryear.

Today, the baseball diamonds of NDG will be a little bit more quiet now that he has been called back home. But for those of us who knew Charlie, his voice will live on within us as we reminisce about his infectious laugh and charming character. We all know  that we have been very blessed to have known him and feel lucky that he was part of our NDG Baseball family. Charlie made a positive contribution in this world and I think I can speak for everyone when I say Charlie will be remembered fondly and will be dearly missed by all.

Condolences to Charlie Hindley's family and extended family on behalf of NDG Minor Baseball.
