2. Benjamin Kleiner (36) director of Baseball School Berlin is going to be the head coach of the Berlin Sluggers 1st Team in 2014. The Sluggers are located in the south of Berlin-Neukölln. The Berlin Sluggers had a really rough time the last years in the 1st Bundesliga, but showed resilience by not breaking apart as a team as many others did before. Still the Berlin Sluggers are the only team to represent Berlin nationally. Besides growing up with the Sluggers and knowing the organisation extremly well, the decision wasn´ t an easy one. Kleiner and the front office agreed that not being relegated and making sure that the young talents will be getting a shot at playing and training with the 1st team, are the main goals for the 2014 season.

Benjamin Kleiner (36) leiter der Baseball School Berlin wird 2014 der Headcoach der 1. Mannschaft der Berlin Sluggers sein. Die Berlin Sluggers spielen im Süden Berlins in Neukölln-Buckow. Um an die Baseball Trainer B Lizenz des Deutschen Olympischen Sportbundes heranzukommen ist es minimal Voraussetzung eine Bundesligamannschft zu betreuen. Trotz der harten Jahre für die Berlin Sluggers in der 1. Bundesliga zeigte die Mannschaft viel Charakter indem sie, wie andere Teams zuvor, nicht auseinander gebrochen sind. Die Entscheidung als Coach der Sluggers zu agieren war keine Leichte. Kleiner und der Vorstand haben sich darauf geeinigt das Spaß und die Integration der talentierten Nachwuchsspieler, in die Spiele und das Training der 1. Mannschaft, oberste Priorität 2014 haben.
