Following this weekend’s events remembering Kal Dimitrov, his brother, Aspi Dimitrov, asked Herts Baseball Club to publish a message on behalf of the Dimitrov family:
My family is deeply touched by the affection and respect shown for my brother and my family.
We are grateful to everyone at Herts Baseball Club for organising and hosting Saturday’s memorial event. This was the most fitting way to say goodbye to Kal.
We are overwhelmed by the support we have received from team mates, family members and fans of Herts Baseball Club, friends and business associates.
I also want to express our gratitude to the wider baseball community. The solidarity shown by the British Baseball Federation, the Great Britain National Team, teams around the leagues, players and friends in the United Kingdom and other parts of the world, has been overwhelming. We are grateful for the support of the whole baseball family.
It makes us very proud that so many see the things we love about Kal.
He achieved a great deal in his personal and professional life, in baseball and in other areas of his life. Projects and initiatives which he was involved in will go on.
Thank you for your kindness and support.
