NBL Mourns the Loss of Coach Mravlja

UpdatedMonday March 8, 2021 byNBL.

It is with a heavy heart that we mourn the loss of Pete Mravlja, a longtime member of the Niskayuna Baseball League family. Pete passed away suddenly on Saturday, March 6.

Pete was a dedicated NBL parent, as well as an NBL rec and travel coach from 2011 to 2019. One of Pete’s greatest joys was coaching his son Zach and arriving at the ballpark early for batting practice with him.  

Pete was a physical education teacher and baseball coach in the North Colonie School District. He also played with a local adult baseball league for 25 years.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Pete’s family and all of those who are affected by this tragedy.
