This ballist comes to the Scouts after a long career in Colorado. In fifteen seasons of vintage base ball, Dutch has played every position, but usually finds himself roaming the outer garden with the Scouts.
Q: Dutch. How’d you get that nickname?
A: I lived in Lancaster County, PA–the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. I also have a strong strain of German ancestry on my mother’s side.
Q: What bat do you use?
A: I use the DF model from the Phoenix Bat Company. Ash, 35 inches long, 32 ounces.
Q: What’s your favorite moment from last season?
A: A rally-killing catch by ‘Long Shanks’ Howard off the bank in the left garden that sent the Dry Town Boys to defeat on their home field in Roane County.
Q: What are you looking forward to most this season?
A: Improving my aces to outs ratio and another championship season for the stalwart ballists of the Stewart’s Creek Scouts!
