After a successful coaching career, including two National Championships in the 90's John turned his ‎sights to team management rolls. This skill set was a seamless transition for John because he had worked in the oil business for over 30 years with Castrol and Quaker State. He was their coast to coast National Sales Manager. ‎John sat on the Premier Baseball League of Ontario's board of Directors from 2004 till 2012. In November of 2012 John was voted league President, a position he held for three years. John is very organized, well respected, a great communicator and overall a true Ambassador for Canadian baseball. Bob Elliott is the Founder and Editor in Chief of the Canadian Baseball Network.
