Calvin Falwell Field - SB Nation Red Reporter

In somber news, Lynchburg Hillcats team president Rex Angel died at the age of 85 last week.

Lynchburg News and Advance:

Rex Angel, Lynchburg Hillcats’ team president and member of the Lynchburg Baseball Corporation since its 1965 inception, passed away at Lynchburg General Hospital Wednesday afternoon because of injuries suffered in a fall at his home last week. Angel was 85.

Angel’s condition had been considered serious since he was admitted to the hospital after his fall.

“Rex’s passing is a great loss for the Hillcats and Lynchburg,” Hillcats general manager Paul Sunwall said in a team-issued release. “He was a dear friend to all of us, and someone we all care deeply for.”

Angel began his association with Lynchburg Baseball Corporation in 1965 as an accountant. In 1978, he became a stockholder and was later named an LBC vice president and member of the executive committee. He ascended to the title of LBC president in November.

Rest In Peace Rex.
