Bill Pegg has been a baseball fan most of his life. He has played, coached, umpired, organized, and supported the game in Kitchener-Waterloo as well as following pro ball closely (even before the Blue Jays). Locally, he’s coached minor ball teams, served as City League Convenor with KMBA (Kitchener Minor Ball) and was coach and is presently business manager of the Junior Panthers, a team made up of 19-21-year-olds. In addition, he serves as the President of the Senior Panthers, the Kitchener men’s team that competes in the Inter-County Baseball League (IBL) and is getting ready to start its 100th season. It is believed to be the longest, continually operating amateur baseball team in the country. He is married and has four adult children, all of whom played ball.
