Baseball WA is pleased to advise that our very own Tim Kennelly, a legend of Team Australia and Perth Heat, has been appointed Head Coach of the Australia West team that will compete at the Palomino Asia Pacific tournament to be held in Korea in June/July.
Kennelly has had a long and decorated baseball career, winning the Helms Award twice as the most outstanding player in the ABL and serving as captain of the national men's team. Kennelly previously played professionally with both the Philadelphia Phillies and Texas Rangers.
Announcements regarding the appointment of two assistant coaches will be made in due course.
The Australia West team will be selected from those players of League Age 17 or 18 participating in Big League competition. Players from a club without a Big League team are encouraged to nominate.
