MMWS is holding a Player and Coaches Reception on Tuesday, July 24th at 6:30 at Municipal Stadium. MMWS is very excited for this year's guest speaker, and UConn Baseball's head coach, Jim Penders!
Jim Penders has worked with the University of Connecticut baseball program for 26 of the last 28 years, being associated with the Huskies as a student-athlete, an assistant coach and now head coach.
"A standout on the baseball field for Connecticut during his undergraduate career, Penders was a four-year letterwinner as a Husky. He was co-captain of the 1994 UConn squad that won the BIG EAST Conference tournament, and the Huskies advanced to the NCAA Championship in both his junior and senior years. He earned First Team All-Northeast, All-New England and All-BIG EAST honors in his senior year as a catcher."

This year's reception is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC. Hope to see you there!
