Baycats Add Jeremy Uylenbroek to Coaching Staff
BARRIE - The Barrie Baycats are pleased to announce that the team has added Jeremy Uylenbroek to the coaching staff ahead of the 2023 season.
Jeremy, one of the first Baycats signed ahead of our inaugural season, is an experienced coach and mentor, most recently coaching for the Titans of the Canadian Premier Baseball League. A three-time IBL all-star, Jeremy played for the Baycats for five seasons.
"It feels great! I have been involved with and seen the impact that this team has had in the Barrie and surrounding communities over the years," said Uylenbroek to the Baycats Media Team following his hire. "I have been lucky enough to play in the IBL for 9 seasons split between the Brantford Red Sox and Barrie Baycats starting in their inaugural season in 2001. Returning to one of the very teams I've played for feels like I've come full circle. I couldn't be any happier to yet again have the opportunity to engage in everything that this league team and city have to offer. I am truly grateful for this opportunity and look forward to what this summer has to bring.”
“Jeremy is a perfect fit for us," said Baycats President Josh Matlow. "He embodies exactly what we are continuing to build on, loves the game of baseball, and has extensive experience in not only coaching but in the Intercounty Baseball League. As a former player and one of the original Baycats, he understands the culture and expectations we have in Barrie. We are very lucky to have him join our coaching staff!”
Uylenbroek joins a baseball operations staff that also includes returning coaches Matlow (Manager), Brad Grieveson (Pitching Coach), and Andrew White (Bench Coach). As previously announced, Katerina Xindaris will return as Athletic Trainer and Rick Schaly will return as Medical Director.
