Reactions

Will Lintern said: “Nik has been involved in British and European baseball as a player and coach for over 25 years and brings his enthusiasm and passion for the sport to this new role.  He has been a key driver in putting baseball in Brighton back on the map and his efforts will greatly enhance the HPA distance learning programmes and provide a vital link to players and parents.”

Nik Patterson has already been active in his new role, having supported the HPA Launch Day at Bisham Abbey in October and having been involved in communications with HPA distance athletes. 

He said: “The Academy and HPA are excellent programmes.  I hope that my efforts will enable both programmes to reach the next level of success and become truly first-class player development environments.   We want to see all our young players in both baseball and fastpitch softball reach their full potential and develop into the future stars of our sports.”
