Softball NL is saddened to learn of the passing of Langdon Critch.

To Langdon’s family and friends, our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.


Langdon Critch (Bay Roberts) was inducted into the Softball NL Hall of Fame in 1977 in the Builder’s Category.

Regarded as the “father of softball” in Conception Bay North, Langdon Critch devoted 20 years to the sport in his native community. On a day-to-day basis he served all levels of CBN softball extremely well, contributing in a wide range of positions and with a wide range of responsibilities.

He was especially effective within CBN minor softball, both male and female, and coached the Conception Bay North female all-stars to the 1977 provincial midget championship.
