Travis Selje played for Cloverdale Minor Baseball for nine years. During this time, he played on three Gold Medal Provincial winning teams, one Bronze Medal Provincial winning team, and won the 13UAAA Western Championship in 2013. He was a straight-A student at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary and took part in the French Immersion program there.
Travis last played for the Spurs in 2014 for the 15UAA team. That year he decided to commit fully to the Vancouver Whitecaps. As part of the Whitecaps residency program, Travis was required to go to high school in Burnaby with the rest of the residency players. Travis had a very bright future ahead of him but tragically died on May 5, 2017, in a car accident.
Travis Selje’s name is throughout the park on the banners on the diamonds representing his achievement on these Provincial winning teams. The Travis Selje Memorial Scholarships are in recognition of his achievements both on and off the baseball diamond.
On behalf of the Cloverdale Minor Baseball Association, we would like to congratulate the following graduating players each receiving a scholarship of $500.00.
