For seven years, Rod Steiner has distinguished himself as one of the best high school baseball coaches in the area.
But it's the time and effort Steiner put in before the first pitch and after the final out on game day that has helped turn the Williamsport baseball program into be one of the best.
It's also what has led Steiner out of the Wildcats dugout for the last time.
Steiner resigned his position as head baseball coach earlier this week, walking away with two region titles, two state championship appearances, an MVAL Antietam title and a .662 winning percentage (104-53).
The 2005 season culminated in a somewhat bittersweet ending for Steiner as the Wildcats finished the regular season with an area-best 18-2 record, but suffered a surprising playoff elimination in the Maryland Class 1A West final against eventual state champion Beall.
