Blair Langmead is a talented fastpitch softball and hockey athlete who has been hitting home runs on the ball field since his early days as a teenager playing in the Pouch Cove Men’s League. His will to win is unmatched as is his competitive personality shown by him taking every opportunity to practice his game whether it would be catching flyballs in between games or working on his swing while everyone who could throw the ball would try to put it past him. In his 23-year senior league career Blair won 5 Regular Season Titles from 1987-1989, 2003 & 2004 and 7 Playoff Championships during 1987-1992 & 1996, finishing his career with an impressive batting average of .317. His team championships at the city and provincial levels as well as three silver and two bronze medals at the National Level would arguably make him one of the most decorated ball players. During his athletic career, as softball was winding down his hockey season was starting up. As an Atom hockey player, Blair was the only player in Pouch Cove who played Atom A Hockey and competed in the Atom A International Hockey Tournament in Nova Scotia. He proved at a young age that he could be a starting goalie as part of the Flatrock Flyers in the Avalon East Senior Hockey League, a competitive league well known for its talented players and rugged play. Stepping away from the League to compete with the Junior 50’s in the St. John’s Junior League, he won League, Provincial and Atlantic titles, but soon returned to the Flatrock Flyers, which became one of the most successful teams in league history. Playing for the Flyers for 19 seasons, he was instrumental in helping the team win 11 Avalon East Senior Hockey League Championships and 3 Herder Memorial Trophy Championships. Blair accumulated an impressive number of individual and team awards including winning Hockey NL’s Presidents Goaltenders Award an impressive 11 times and the NLHA Senior ‘A’ Goaltender Award 4 times. In 2007 Blair was named as one of the top 15 performers for all time with the St. John’s Senior Men’s Fastpitch League and in 2014 he was inducted into the Softball Newfoundland and Labrador Hall of Fame.
