Bret Leuthner Loses Battle with Cancer

By Jersey Hitmen Staff, 01/02/24, 10:30AM EST


The Jersey Hitmen are saddened to learn of the passing of our NCDC Broadcaster Bret Leuthner on January 1, 2024 after a hard fought battle with cancer.

Bret was involved in sports throughout New Jersey as a broadcaster for Morris Sussex Sports covering high school athletics and as the voice of the Sussex County Miners since 2016. He was honored as Broadcaster of the Year in 2023 for the Frontier Baseball League.

A very familiar face to everyone at the Ice Vault, Bret could be found in the scorebox working as scorekeeper and PA Announcer or simply prepping for a game in our restaurant. He would always find time to chat and was usually surrounded by fellow broadcasters and friends.

Our deepest sympathies go out to his children and his family. A GoFundMe has been set up to start a college fund for his children.
