Maybe the third season will be the charm for the returning coaching staff.

WILFREDO 'KIKI' DEL VALLE, Hudson River Hawks Assistant Coach

DANNY CHAVES, Hudson River Hawks Assistant Coach

General Manager, and the Nationals head coach, Frank Orlando, brings a high level of energy and enthusiasm that is infectious.  The team will play at a very high energy all season long.  Frank and the Nats are a welcomed addition to the MCBL in 2017.

Coaches Fernando Fuentes and Danny Chaves are back, and firmly believe that they have unfinished business to tend to after that loss in the 2016 post season.  Re-armed, and under a new team name - the Hawks are out to grind to the crown for 2017.
