Remembering EJ Quijada

 

La Jolla Youth Baseball lost one of its’ stalwarts on the evening of January 24th, 2019 when EJ Quijada tragically passed away. EJ was an incredibly impactful and influential cog in our baseball community. He inspired with his leadership while always keeping the proper perspective about the game he and his family love so deeply. Now the family must take some very difficult steps forward. As they do, we would also encourage all of those in our baseball orbit to collectively wrap our arms around this amazing family.
