Rapids’ season opener coming up
The Watertown rapids held another workout Tuesday in preparation for the season opener that was just two days away.
The Rapids host the Auburn Doubledays this coming Thursday night at the Alex Duffy fairgrounds.
Clarkson assistant coach Ben Moxley is the coach of the Rapids this year. His assistant is former Herkimer player John Boland.
Boland is happy to be working with his former teammate at Herkimer.
“We played together in 2014, I think it was, went to the JUCO World Series together, I was his catcher,” Boland said. It’s pretty fun to be coaching together. He just called me randomly. I was in sports med before this as an athletic trainer and decided to start coaching again, get back on the field, put the pants back on. Coach Mox, I guess we’ll call him, he called me and wanted me to come out and coach with him so I’m here now. “Got a good group of guys and looking forward to it.”
“I got a lot of confidence in John,” Moxley said. “He’s a great guy to be around, known him for a long time. He was actually my roommate first year in college. He’s a very personable guy. He gets to know the players really well, makes them feel comfortable and has a wealth of knowledge. He worked with a lot of pitchers in the minor leagues with the Astros, so he’s got great experience. He’s going to be a really good asset for our guys.”
