Tomcat Coaching Staff and Roster Selected
Submitted By Organization on Saturday, March 16, 2019
The 2019 St. Thomas Tomcat season is starting to take shape and it looks as though it will be another great year for the club.

Head Coach Arizona Phoenix has assembled what promises to be a very strong coaching staff.  Making a return to the Tomcat staff is Hitting Coach Matt Gooding.  Matt is a mainstay on the coaching staff and brings a wealth of hitting instruction that will support each player.  In addition to Gooding, some new faces will be on the diamond with the team this season.  Joining the staff this year will be 3 new Assistant Coaches.  Paul Pettipiece will be joining the team after several seasons with the AAA London Badger program.  Kyle Zimmer, will be handling the pitching staff this year.  Kyle has most recently been the pitching coach with the Fanshawe Falcons OCAA team in London.  Rounding out the coaching staff is former Tomcat player Tom Johnston.  Tom has coached the previous 2 seasons with the 18u AAA London Badgers who have captured back to back National Gold at the 18u level.

The 2019 roster is shaping up quite nicely as well.  Many returning players will bring experience competing at the elite junior level and a strong roster of rookies will be joining the team this season.  Many have been on the 2 National Championship Badger teams, and are playing at their respective colleges as well.  

The regular season Southwest Senior League Schedule should be completed shortly and will be posted on the schedule page.  Additional exhibition games are currently being scheduled with other Junior teams from the area.  The Tomcats also plan to attend 2-3 tournaments this summer, and obviously attend the AAA 21U Ontario Eliminations striving to qualify for the Baseball Canada 21u Championships being hosted in Ottawa/Gattineau this year.
