The Colorado Peaches are remembering their long-time coach, Gail Klock. Klock died last month at age 73 after a long battle with cancer.

Even in the face of illness, she maintained a winning spirit with her senior women's softball team, coaching from her hospital bed as her players took home a silver medal at the National Senior Games. The Peaches welcome athletes 50 to 90-plus. Ryan Warner spoke with Gail Klock in 2017, along with Maggie McCloskey, who plays second base for the Colorado Peaches.
