Personal

Will Nahmens is starting pitcher/UTL out of Occidental College (NCAA III) who took his career overseas for the 2017-2018 winter as the player-coach for the Woden Rebels of the Capital Territory State League in Canberra, Australia. There he won the team batting award and acted as their Ace. 

Will’s fastball sits 84-85 (verified), complimented by a change-up, slider, and cutter. Will can also hit for average and play the infield as well as the outfield.

In 2018, Will played in the Swedish Elitserien with the Leksand Lumberjacks where he lead the team to an Elitserien Championship and was selected as an All-Star. There he also acted as the assistant coach and managed the junior program. Will led the league in most  pitching statistical categories including, but not limited to, ERA (1.52), strikeouts (96), K/BB ratio (4.17), Wins (11), WHIP (.91) and was second in the league in BAA (.182) and third in K/9 (9.71). He also hit for a formidable .300 batting average, hitting .318 and slugging .454 in the playoffs. The stats from the Leksand Lumberjacks can be seen here.

In the 2018-19 winter season, Will played for the Cronulla Sharks of the NSW State League. There he was both a relief pitcher and starting pitcher for the club. After a bit of a slow and rainy start, he finished the season strong on 48 2/3 innings pitched and only 13 earned runs. He lead the team in innings pitched and held up a solid effort from the pitching staff down the stretch.

Currently Will is playing for the Attang-Puchheim Athletics in the first league of Austria as a utility player and starting pitcher.

Will is open to a player-coach role and/or a role within a youth program of any club that signs him.

Any club in need of a pitcher or player-coach is encouraged to reach out to Will with any expressions of interest.
