Appointment of New Club Head Coach
The Williamstown Baseball Club is delighted to announce the appointment of Jason Rogers to the position of head coach for the remainder of the season. Jason has been an integral part of the coaching staff for the past two seasons and comes with a wealth of experience. He has kindly agreed to take the helm and guide the club in its bid to stay in Division 1.
Jason will be replacing Dean Marnell, effective immediately, as the head coach. Unfortunately Dean is no longer able to fulfil the coaching requirements, due to unforeseen changes in his work and personal commitments. We thank Dean for his hard work and look forward to his continuing contribution on the field.
The Wolves would like to thank Jason for taking on the additional responsibility at this crucial time and look forward to a successful second half of the season.

No New Year Cheer for Wolves
Round 18 Round Up
On a hot Sunday afternoon the Wolves travelled to Waverly first up after the mid season break to take on the Reds. Waverly had a 3 grame break on the Wolves so a win would have brought us back within striking distance and put a gap between themselves and Upwey FTG sitting last on the ladder.
Unfortunately an undermanned Wolves team couldn't contain the Waverly hitting or make any ground against the Reds pitcher (John Kennedy). The Wolves went down 10-0 in the eigth. The loss sees the Wolves back in the relegation zone sitting 2nd last on the combined ladder, 1.5 games ahead of Upwey FTG and a game behind Sandringham.
The Wolves season has sea-sawed from great heights to some ordinary performances with consistancy being their biggest issue and this was the case agan on the weekend. The Wolves face Essendon over the next 2 rounds so will need significant improvement to have any chance of causing an upset. Following that is two games against Sandringham which could well decide the relegation standings at the end of the year.
The Seconds opened the new year with a solid 10-3 win over Waverly in 6 innings. Most pleasing with the win was the return to form of Jason Lester on the mound. Mantis pitched 5 innings and gave up only 3 hits with 5 strike outs and 1 earned run to pick up the win. Bill Millar closed out the last innings.
The 2s are not without a chance of making the finals but will have to continue to beat the teams immediately above them in the coming weeks to keep that chance alive.
