Mr Chinnery reportedly passed away last night.
The Virgin Islands Softball - Baseball Association in a Facebook post today said Mr Chinnery was everything to the hundreds of players he coached and mentored.
The Association said Mr Chinnery wore many hats within the Softball/Baseball family, including father-figure, coach, friend, mentor, role model and much more.
“He was always present in all of his players' many accomplishments and never missed a moment to give good stern advice when his softball/Baseball kids were not excelling.”
It said Chinnery will be remembered for his love for softball, baseball, and just being a people person.
“Short in height, small in words, but mighty in his approach in getting the job done, as he led the way in ensuring many of our Virgin Islands athletes played on diamonds around the world. “Chino” had an eye for talent and helped everyone he came in contact with, even if he had less for himself,” the Association stated.
Chino served as President of the Virgin Islands Softball - Baseball Association 2016 -2021.
“We offer our prayers and condolences to the family of the late Mr Terrence “Chino” Chinnery during this time. We will continue to work closely together during this challenging time in our lives and display the gentle giant spirit of our stalwart member Chino,” the Associated stated.
