Maxine Gordon had those rare qualities that made her a great coach and sportswoman and a true role model for all our youth. Maxine loved people and sports. She loved kids. She loved a good game. The Wayland Baseball and Softball Association was greatly enriched by her involvement and spirit. Maxine always had cheerful, encouraging and positive words for every player. She instilled the love of sports and good sportsmanship. Maxine made a difference in a lot of kids’ lives. She coached both softball and baseball teams and was the first woman to coach in the majors. She helped each player to develop and grow. Each player came with a certain set of skills. Each improved. Each could feel good about how they played. Each was an important part of the team. Maxine’s players developed skills while enjoying the sport, the competition, and the camaraderie.
With her enthusiasm and knowledge, her encouraging selfless approach, and her love of people and sports, Maxine Gordon was a great role model for all.
