Phil McLaughlin

It is with a heavy heart to report that St. Louis Handball legend Phil “The Irish Whip” McLaughlin has passed away. Phil was a tremendous player late into his life and could generate awesome power on the ball for a player of his age. In addition to being a great player, he was an extremely nice and pleasant person off the court as well. To our brothers in St. Louis, sorry for your loss.
