In 2019, Towne Club had some standout moments despite being eliminated from playoff contention by a strong TJO team. In the 2020 season, Towne aims to win the championship.
With a loyal returning core, Towne expects to be an offensive force. Some of Towne’s returning veterans include Dana Dresser (formerly of Northeastern University), and Brett Emmertz (formerly of Colby Sawyer College). Dana will be returning for his 12th season in the Park League. Towne is excited to have its scrappiest veteran return. Brett Emmertz, also known as the Human Lightning Bolt, will be returning this season. We are expecting big things from Brett the Bolt.
A few other veterans returning to Towne Club in the 2020 season include Jim Perron (formerly of Florida Southern College), Alex Venditti (formerly of Worcester Polytechnic Institute), and Chris Hoyt (formerly of Stonehill College). In the 2019 season, Jim Perron (MVP) hit a staggering .462 and had a total of 43 hits including 3 home runs. Towne is expecting Jim to have another great season. Former Park League MVPs and All-Stars Alex Venditti and Chris Hoyt also hope to have great offensive years.
We are especially excited to announce a new addition to the pitching staff CJ Doskocil (formerly of Worcester Polytechnic Institute). We are lucky to have another southpaw on our staff and are looking forward to seeing what he can do.
Returning pitchers this season include Townes Ace James Bussiere (formerly of Bentley College), as well as Kyle Zembsch (formerly of Greensboro College), Dillon Dresser (formerly of Bates College), Zach Jacobson (formerly of Babson College), and Patrick Carbone (currently of Colby College). We hope to add a few more to the staff before the season starts.
In other news, Towne Club’s manager, Grant Bowen, is stepping down this season due to baby on the way. We wish him well and look forward to seeing him come to a few a games with his new baby girl.
All in all, the 2020 season is looking bright for Towne Club and the players are excited to get going.
