A CAREER spanning almost two decades with Wangaratta Rangers baseball will see Nathan Pool play his 300th game for the club on Sunday.
Finishing the 2017 season on 299 games, the inaugural member, two-time premiership winner, committee member and former vice president and now coach Nathan Pool is heavily ingrained in the Rangers’ club make up.
Pool, a pitcher, will play his 300th game against Porepunkah in Wangaratta and caught with the Wangaratta Chronicle to discuss the finer points of his career to date.
“You don’t play for these milestones, I didn’t even realise how close I was to 300 until the book came around after last season and I saw 299 next to my name,” Pool said.
“I’ve seen Brendan French and Tetsu Kamiyama play their 300 games in the past couple of years and it’s great for the club to have these milestones.”
Starting at the Saints and helping merge the Saints’ and Dodgers’ teams into the Rangers in 2000, Pool has been a steady figure in the Wangaratta Baseball since.
