Major A Coach Appointed

June 29, 2019

Pine Hills Lightning Basball Club is pleased to introduce Joel Naughton as our senior Division 1 coach for the 2019/20 season. 


Joel started his baseball journey right here at Pine Hills back in 1995 playing in the under 10’s junior
competition. He represented Brisbane Metro and the Queensland Rams through the junior levels
and went on to play for the Australian U/17 and 19 teams.


It was at the Australian Academy held on the Gold Coast in 2003 where Joel signed his professional
contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.


Joel spent the better part of 7 years in the Phillies organisation. In 2008, he was named in the Low A midseason All-Star game and following the season’s completion, Baseball America’s Defensive Catcher of the Year in the South Atlantic League. Joel was added to the Phillies 40man roster in 2009 and represented Australia at the 2009 World Baseball Classic and World Baseball Cup. Joel also played for the Brisbane Bandits 2010 and 2011 seasons.


In 2011, Joel delivered a game-winning hit in the Phillies Spring training game and went to briefly play in AAA, before calling it a day on his baseball career.


After living in Mount Isa for 6 years, Joel and his family returned to Brisbane last year, and Joel played for Pine Hills Division 1 team last season. His experience at home and abroad will have him well equipped to lead our Div 1 team in the upcoming season.

After finishing high school, Tim spent 13 years in the US attending university playing at Wallace State in Hanceville, Alabama for the hall of fame coach Randy Putman. Tim then went to the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

After completing his Master’s, Tim coached at Whitfield County High School in Georgia, was the Head Baseball Coach at West Point High School in Alabama, and Head Coach at Lemon Bay High School in Florida. Tim also spent short stints coaching back at his alma-maters Wallace State and UAB.

After returning to Australia, Tim has coached the Manly first grade team in the Sydney State League and led the U14 NSW team to a National Championship.

Tim’s professional life has seen him as the CEO for baseball NSW and the Blue Sox, and he is currently the Executive Director for Triathlon Queensland.

His role will involve managing, coordinating and overseeing the delivery of development strategies within Pine Hills Lighting Baseball Club’s player and coach pathway.

We are happy to have Tim on board and hope everyone welcomes him to our club.
