The Project: We are celebrating Coach Wathen, who sadly passed away unexpectedly in late 2018. The Blazer Baseball family and the John Wood Community College Foundation are asking for your support to honor his legacy. Our goal is to purchase a new baseball scoreboard which will showcase Coach’s name. The scoreboard installation is scheduled for the Spring of 2020, including the presentation of a donor acknowledgement plaque.

The Legacy: Coach Wathen spent 25 seasons at JWCC with 597 career victories. He led two teams to the NJCAA Region 24 championship game with seven of his players inducted into the JWCC Hall of Fame.
