William P. Brennan Award

William P. Brennan was raised in Berkley. His love of baseball began at an early age.
As a boy, spring weather meant neighborhood games and trips to Tiger Stadium with family & friends. Spending money came by means of a paper route which led him to play ball for the Detroit Times.

As a young adult, Mr. Brennan played for American Legion Post 374 in Berkley.
A work-related move transported him, along with his family, to Ohio where he became a loyal fan of the Cincinnati Reds.

While an employee of General Electric, he actively played for their ball team for several years. He was a gifted player with a life-long love of the game.

This scholarship will be awarded to an individual displaying exemplary personal qualities including being a dedicated team player and exhibiting good sportsmanship along with a strong desire to improve his game.

The Berkley Dadsí Club is extremely thankful to Mr. Brennanís family for instituting this award & scholarship, and for making sure it goes to kids in the community where he learned to love the game.
