Coach Steve "Whitey" Breitner
There was a wonderful article on the Canadian Baseball Network that was dedicated to Etobicoke Rangers senior team head coach Steve Breitner. CLICK FOR CBN ARTICLE
Steve Breitner or "Whitey" as most friends called him, was the last coach I ever played for. He always believed in his players and wanted the best of us.
Representing Ontario at the 2002 Nationals in Prince George British Columbia was a wonderful experience and the team would not have made it that far if it wasn't for his leadership. Being the youngest player on the team I was very overwhelmed when I first met Coach Breitner. The amount of knowledge and experience that he possesses, truly defines the word "Legend". A student of the game, hard-nosed and old school mentality. Whitey taught me how to play with confidence. He instilled a confidence in his players and had one objective "Being a Family". He exemplifies the true meaning of "coach".
Thank you for the memories and thank you for allowing me to be apart of the Etobicoke Rangers family.
