All, an official notification that Neville Brockie has decided to step aside from the coaching role with the Brisbane Metro Senior League team. I am sure you will all join in thanking Nev for his assistance throughout this competition and indeed over a number of years. Our children are better baseball players thanks to your enthusiastic willingness to impart your many decades of baseball knowledge on to them. Thank you Nev!
To ensure that we have appropriate coaching support for both the Junior league and Senior League teams, we have made some coaching changes.
For the Junior League, Ross Field will undertake the Head Coach role supported by Scott Smythe as the Executive Officer. Fortunately for Metro, Scott has the necessary experience to be able to manage the first base coaching responsibilities for us during the competition.
For Senior League, Craig Roberts will continue to undertake the role of Head Coach and will now be supported by Renato Rostagno as the Executive Officer. Renato also brings to the table the relevant qualification to provide first base coaching support during the competition. I am sure all parents of the Senior League team will welcome Renato as part of the staff. Claudio Natale will be continuing to provide administrative support for the team leading up to and throughout the State Titles.
I am sure you will all understand that these changes have been made as a consequence of recent events however the upheaval that has enveloped Brisbane Metro over the past month needs to now take second stage, and the focus now needs to be on having our children ready for the upcoming competition.
