On the back of announcing Scott Wearne as the Club Coach for season 2013/2014, we are pleased to announce our Assistant Coaches for the coming season will be Myles Barnden and Lucas Price. The club is excited at the prospect of both coaches working with Scott to ensure a bright future for our men’s program.
Both Myles and Lucas join Scott as longstanding Springvale members, all 3 coaches having played junior baseball at the club throughout their careers. Myles is a well-respected player in Victoria. He was a state and National representative in his junior days, and signed a minor league contract back in the 90’s with the Baltimore Orioles. Many would remember him as “Myles Barden-en-en-en-en-en” from his days with the Waverley Reds playing out at Waverley and Moorabbin.
Lucas also excelled as a junior, playing state baseball for Victoria over a long period before committing more of his time to his other love, go kart racing. But over the past several years, Lucas has devoted a huge amount of his time not only to the men’s program, but also taking on a mentoring role with the women’s program.
We welcome Myles and Lucas on board and wish them both the best of luck as they assist the program moving forward.
