Project Notes: Otho Smith spent over 20 years of his life coaching youth softball at Antimi Sports Complex and was the head coach of the Snappers, a competitive youth softball team. Otho was an instrumental factor toward the success of the Diamond Council and served on the Diamond Council Board for 15 years. A group of friends, family and fellow coaches raised $10,000 for the memorial project. The viewing platform will be called “Snapper’s Landing.”
