2017 Sidewinders Update

Jun. 17, 2017

2017 – Year of the ‘New’ Sidewinders

 

Sidewinders have a significantly different team this year.  There is also very exciting news.  As team members have dropped off as they ‘grow up,’ - many have left to marriage, moving to a different city, jobs that interfere time wise etc.  Only Ted Pratt, Bryan Carroll, Taylor Greenhut and Adam Dawkins remain from the ‘Old Days.’  We also have a few 5 year guys still around like Bill Jensen, Jason Whitfield, Terrell Jones, Joe Wilson, Donnie Poles and Matt Kennison.  But the BIG NEWS this year was the disintegration of the mighty Team Mizuno.  After 15 years, the team folded and left several top players with no team…..and they felt the Sidewinders were their best bet to be on a winning team without a lot of baggage.  So, we got them.  A half dozen solid guys like Dan Dale, Jason Creel, Rey Gallaher, Johnny Greer, Buck Fowles and Chris Cumberland……and we are very happy for it!!  We also picked up a total stud first baseman (lefty) who is a big guy – a wizard with a glove and can crush the ball – Mathew WeaverDanny Lazzaroni has also rejoined the team after doing AA with the San Diego Padres before arm injuries sidelined him.  He has opened a baseball pitching clinic and is throwing well for us once again.  Although he throws very well, the big leagues are not interested in 27 year olds! Manager John Wolosick and retired (from work) coaches Bill Carroll and Bruce Greenhut continue as well.
