2019 Select Coach of the Year - Paul Bowser

“It is hard to put into words exactly what Coach Bowser means to our son and our family. Never have we met such a dedicated individual who gives so much of himself for the betterment of his team.... his family. His vast knowledge, enthusiasm and love for the game, and positive supportive attitude even in times of adversity is unmatched. Not only is he teaching our son to be a better ballplayer, he is teaching him to be a better person. He is an amazing role model and the life lessons he teaches will undoubtedly benefit our son for a lifetime all while getting to play the greatest game of We are forever grateful for Coach Paul and the mark he has left on our family. He is truly a one of a kind individual that is more than deserving of Coach of the Year! “-Parent Nomination
