No individual in the slo-pitch community is more respected than Donnie "Coach" Brandt. He was able to combine a love for the game, sportsmanship and camaraderie with his position at Molson Breweries to initiate and nurture the organization that has evolved into Slo-Pitch National. As a coach and player, in four years Don turned a 'marginal' neighbourhood team into the 1991 40+C National Champions. In fact, this team is still playing competitively in the 50+ category. An ever present fixture at tournaments and beer gardens, Don is truly the "Ambassador" for slo-pitch.
