Brian Harlamert has been at Coldwater since 1998 with a record of 490-143 with two titles.
Coldwater has had 3 coaches since 1959 and an all time record of 1400-358.
The youth rec programs are extremely well attended with I believe 8 little league teams and 3 pony league teams. Where many kids are fleeing local rec leagues to "play up" on "elite" teams and spending upwards of a thousand plus for a season the Coldwater youth program is a very basic and simplistic program and booming on attendance. The emphasis on fun, getting as many kid to play and learning the basics of all aspects of the game and playing with the teammate you will have through high school is true team building and trump the individualistic views many have that make them believe if they spend thousands of dollars on their kid then it guarenteed success. Too many places the game of baseball has gone away from team and more about me me me.
Tom Held has been at Defiance since 1999 with an overall record of 525-95. 14 WBL titles (including the 7 in a row, all undefeated run from 2007-2013), 18 sectional, 12 district, 5 regional, and 3 state titles.
Before that, Greg Inselmann was there from 1981-98, going 303-85 with 10 WBL, 10 sectional, 5 district, 1 regional, and 1 state title.
All all in all, since 1981 (39 seasons), Defiance has had 2 coaches, and an overall mark of 828-180 while winning 24 league, 28 sectional, 17 district, 6 regional, and 4 state championships. And of course, 4 major league players with numerous draftees and minor leaguers.
Much like Coldwater, the key is a well funded and supported youth baseball program from Tee ball on up. No kid is turned away, they'll find a place for you, everyone plays, and the emphasis at the lower levels is on team building, fun, and development.
Kyle Reiser has been at Elmwood since 1985. (Except for 3 years when Tom Held was there) Reiser's overall record at Elmwood is 549-240. They have won 14 Conference Championships, 16 Sectional Championships, were State runnerup in 2007.
