GVBA would like to pass on our sincere condolences and deepest sympathies to the Downey family on the loss of their son. Zack was a true competitor on the field during his minor baseball days with GVBA, with the Batam Eagles, pitching a perfect game for them in 2011, and with the Junior and Premier Mariners organization. He was a true competitor and inspiration off the field as well, battling his cancer right until the final out. Zack supported his teammates despite his illness, attending games and providing moral support and in turn, his teammates helped Zack as well. He was a ballplayer, a friend and an inspiration to all and he will be missed by the entire baseball community.
