2019 HEAD COACHES SET
The head coaches for the 2019 season have been selected. Rich Spatz and Jason Moser will be returning to the Sr. Legion and Prep teams respectively. It will be Spatz' third year as head coach while it will be Moser's second.
Joining them will be Jeff Miller as head coach of the Jr. Legion team. While a new Jr. Legion head coach, he is certainly no stranger to the game or coaching. He has coached teams with FABA and also has been an umpire.
The decision to have additional teams (Babe Ruth or City County) will be driven by the number of boys signing up. We are committed to trying to provide every boy an opportunity to play ball, however we cannot guarantee it.
GREEN, DIETRICH JOIN WILDCAT BOARD
In a move aimed at solidifying the Wildcats with their sponsoring schools, the Wildcats added Fleetwood High School baseball head coach Rolland Green and Schuylkill Valley baseball head coach Mark Dietrich to their board of directors. "We're elated to have these two guys join us. In addition to their depth of baseball knowledge, this should make the move from the home school to the Wildcats and back easier for the players."
