Proclamation signing marks the beginning of monthlong SAAPM events
Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) under way at Naval Air Station Pensacola From NAS Pensacola Public Affairs
The Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola commanding officer joined other NAS Pensacola commanding officers in signing a Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) proclamation April 1 onboard the air station. The ceremony included NAS Pensacola-area military leadership signing proclamations for display in each command and Kinsella tying a teal ribbon – the Department of Defense’s (DoD) symbol for Sexual Assault Awareness and Response (SAPR) – around the air station’s flagpole. Kinsella opened the brief ceremony with remarks, stressing the importance of the occasion to the attending commanding officers, service members and civilians. “Having all the senior leadership here on the base is an indication on how important (Sexual Assault Prevention and Response) is to us as leaders and members of the United States Armed Forces,” he said. “We all have a solemn and inherent duty to protect the
people that work with us and for us, because when it comes down to it, we are a family. We can only defeat sexual assault by looking out for each other every day.” The Department of Defense (DoD)-established theme of “Protecting Our People Protects Our Mission,” a concept designed to promote solidarity within the U.S. Armed Forces, is underscored by the Navy’s “Make the Commitment” call to action, encouraging service members to commit to promoting a culture intolerant of sexual assault. The event coincided with other Commander, Navy Region Southeast (CNRSE) bases holding similar ceremonies, according to NAS Pensacola Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) Lillie Johnson, who emphasized the 2019 This year’s DoD theme is “Protecting our people protects our mission. Make a commitment.” “It’s so important for us to make the commitment to focus on prevention to stop the culture of sexual assault in the military,” she said. “Having all the area commanding offi-

The Spanish Royal Navy training ship Juan Sebastian de Elcano docked at Naval Air Station (NAS) Pensacola’s ship pier facility, Allegheny Pier, March 31. The ship’s visit to Pensacola is part of the vessel’s world cruise celebrating the 500th anniversary of Juan de Elcano and Ferdinand Magellan’s historic circumnavigation of the earth. The ship’s last visit to Pensacola was in 2015. “We’re are excited and honored to have this historic vessel visit Pensacola and pull pierside to Naval Air Station Pensacola,” NAS Pensacola Commanding Officer Capt. Timothy Kinsella Jr. said. “This air station has deep ties to the Spanish military, including the construction of Ft. San Carlos de Austria in 1698 and Ft. San Carlos de Barrancas in 1797. This magnificent ship is a reminder of our shared maritime and military heritage and it is our privilege to welcome them here as a partner nation in present and future endeavors.” The ship was open for tours during its six-day stay, with service members and Pensacola-area community members visiting the vessel during posted hours. Juan Sebastian de Elcano Commanding Officer Capt. Ignacio Paz Garcia said Pensacola has been a favorite port visit for the training ship, evidenced by the vessel’s eight previous visits to the city. “The previous reports from port visits highlighted how the crewmembers and midshipmen enjoyed this port,” he said. “This was because

Navy survey to address privatized housing issues From NAS Pensacola Public Affairs
As a result of recent concerns of sub-standard privatized housing conditions across the military branches, Chief of Naval Operations John Richardson has directed an “out of cycle” housing survey be given to all Sailors currently living in the housing. The intent of the survey, which will be conducted from April 2 to 30 by an independent third party, is to determine residents’ overall satisfaction with privatized housing, to include health and safety concerns. What makes the survey unique is that it is being conducted on behalf of the Navy, which is different than past annual surveys that were con-
ducted on behalf of the five companies that provide Navy privatized housing. Sailors through the survey will also be able to note their likes and dislikes with privatized housing, concerns they may have regarding their homes, community and services provided by the privatized housing management companies as well as overall satisfaction. All Sailors living in privatized housing are strongly encouraged to participate in the survey. They will receive a letter, which will provide information on how to access the survey, from CEL & Associates, Inc., which is an independent third party that will conduct and manage the survey.
In light of issues recently raised by service members and families, the Navy has also conducted town hall meetings and “walk throughs” where residents volunteer to have leadership check out their houses. In addition, the Navy is working with housing partners to ensure maintenance and repairs are conducted and other issues are addressed. The Navy is also conducting a survey April 2 to June 20 for Sailors living in unaccompanied housing. A survey for Sailors and families living in government-owned or government-leased housing was launched March 19 and runs through June 6. For more information, call 456-3120.

Johnson added that in addition to the devastating impact on an individual, a sexual assault can severely impact a unit’s readiness to perform its mission. She also said that sexual assault is defined as intentional sexual contact characterized by use of force, threats, intimidation, abuse of authority or when the victim does not or cannot consent, and can occur without regard to gender or spousal relationship or age of victim. Victims of sexual assault have two reporting options – unrestricted and restricted. Unrestricted cases are reported through the chain of command, while restricted reports are made confidentially and allow victims to get help without reporting it through their chain of command or law enforcement. Anyone in immediate danger should call 911. To report a sexual assault, call the toll-free DoD Safe Helpline at (877) 995-5247, the Naval Air Station Pensacola Sexual Assault Response Coordinator (SARC) at 4525109/9017 or your command SAPR victim advocate.

Naval Air Station, Pensacola, Fla.: A Bicentennial Defense Community Commanding Officer – Capt. Timothy Kinsella
The Gosport nameplate pays homage to the 100th anniversary of naval aviation in 2011: the Centennial of Naval Aviation, or CONA. The image on the left side of the nameplate depicts Eugene Ely taking off in a Curtiss pusher biplane from the USS Pennsylvania Jan. 18, 1911. While Ely had taken off from the USS Birmingham two months earlier after his plane had been loaded on the ship, the USS Pennsylvania event was the first time a plane landed on and then took off from a U.S. warship. The image on the right side is one of the
Navy’s most modern fighter aircraft, the F/A18 Super Hornet. Established in 1921 as the Air Station News, the name Gosport was adopted in 1936. A gosport was a voice tube used by flight instructors in the early days of naval aviation to give instructions and directions to their students. The name “Gosport” was derived from Gosport, England (originally God’s Port), where the voice tube was invented.

What a difference two decades make By Lisa Smith Molinari Military Spouse Columnist
n 1998, our son, Hayden, was diagnosed with “atypical autism.” After recovering from the shock, my husband and I inundated ourselves with information, desperate to provide our three-year-old boy with whatever might help him lead a relatively normal life. We embarked on a home therapy program called “Floortime,” a type of play therapy developed by Dr. Stanley Greenspan, in which the a primary caregiver, often a parent, follows the child’s lead while opening and closing “circles of communication.” The thought was that Floortime helped children who hadn’t met necessary milestones for socialemotional growth which affected their ability to relate and communicate. A few civilian friends I knew with autistic children were paying for Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, which rewards positive behaviors during task oriented sessions conducted 20 to 40 hours per week by trained ABA therapists. Back then, most
How to submit a commentary
About the columnist Lisa Smith Molinari, mother of three, was a military spouse for more than 25 years. Her husband recently retired from the Navy. Her syndicated column appears in military and civilian newspapers, including Stars and Stripes, and on her blog, www.themeat a nd p ot a t o e s of l i fe.c o m .
insurance companies did not cover autism therapies which were considered “experimental” or “not medical in nature.” At that time, I didn’t know any military families who could afford ABA. Although I believed that Floortime would be more effective than ABA for Hayden, I also had no choice but to pick the therapy that I could do myself. ABA was done by paid professionals, so it was out of the question. But Hayden’s doctor also prescribed physical, occupational and speech therapies, as well as special diets, evaluation by a nutritionist, and regular doctor’s appointments. Like other insurance carriers, TRICARE did not recognize autism as a coverable diagnosis, but offered a small
financial supplement for certain individual symptoms that significantly impaired the “activities of daily living” through its Program For Persons With Disabilities (PFPWD), now known as Extended Care Health Option (ECHO). Hayden’s autism profile included a speech disorder and motor planning delays which qualified, so we received a small stipend each month to pay part of the speech and occupational
therapy bills. As for the rest of Hayden’s autism symptoms, we were financially on our own. We paid for expensive liquid nutritional supplements since Hayden’s sensory imbalances made him reject many food textures and tastes. We paid for expensive mail order flours and consultations with a specialized nutritionist when Hayden’s doctor ordered a gluten-free, casein-free diet. (Gluten-free foods were not prevalent like they are today.) After applying the money received from our monthly PFPWD stipend, we paid the thrice-weekly speech and occupational therapy bills. We paid to see a developmental psychiatrist once or twice a year to the tune of $500 a pop, and a psychologist who trained us in Floortime at $250 per session. But like many parents of children with autism spectrum disorder who desperately hoped for progress, we were more than willing to go into debt if we thought it would help our son. And go into debt we did. In a big way. As a Brookings Institute fellow astutely observed in 2008, “Many military families choose to pay for medically prescribed autism treatment themselves, to the extent possible, and incur significant debt. This unduly burdens already stressed families, which often have one parent deployed
abroad these days.” By age nine, Hayden had made so much progress, his autism diagnosis was downgraded to “regulatory disorder,” and although he still struggled with social delays and sensory processing, he no longer needed intensive therapies. Ironically, at the very same time there was a movement to reform autism insurance coverage in the US. Although TRICARE considered ABA therapy to be “educational rather than medically necessary,” it began allowing families to use the monthly ECHO supplement to go toward limited ABA costs. Then in 2007, US states began passing laws requiring insurers to cover autism. And finally, in July 2014, TRICARE began fully covering ABA and other autism treatments through its Autism Care Demonstration program which will remain in effect through December 2023. Although TRICARE still considers its program to be “experimental,” it has been forced to change its policies toward autism significantly. When Hayden needed treatment, autism wasn’t recognized as a coverable diagnosis. Two decades later, 48 states have mandated autism coverage. The system is certainly not perfect, but it’s come a long way, baby.

Rating Modernization: Navy Credentialing (COOL) By Rear Adm. John Nowell Director of Military Personnel, Plans and Policies
ating modernization is the future of growing the workforce in the Navy. In August, we released NAVADMIN 196/18 that provided an update on those four lines of effort and this is the fifth of a total of five blog posts that talk about the updates to rating modernization. We also have a series of six rating modernization podcasts that mirror the blogs we will be sharing with you. Want a quick overview of COOL? Watch the 60-second video here: https://www. navy.mil/ah_online/ftrStory. asp?issue=3&id=106331. Want to get the Navy COOL app? Look for it on the Google Play store or iTunes. Navy Credentialing Opportunities Online is a credentialingassistance program for Sailors and DoD civilians to obtain licenses and certifications to validate their knowledge and experience and open doors to new opportunities in the Navy and in the civilian community. This is important because obtaining credentials – certifications and licenses – shows that you meet certain professional and technical standards of many civilian jobs. The Navy has made credentials part of its workforce professionalization, so getting certified can help you in your Navy career while you
are still in service. Navy Credentialing Opportunities Online currently funds more than 2,700 certificates/ licenses with opportunities for Sailors in every rating. Navy COOL recently reduced the minimum service remaining on a Sailor’s enlistment contract to earn credentials from 12 to six months, and expanded opportunity for Sailors to earn credentials mapped to an academic degree, on/off-duty training, Navy Reservist’s civilian occupation or many technical education certificates. Additionally, there are more opportunities for Sailors to maximize their Navy training and qualifications toward attainment of U.S. Coast Guard licenses, to include funding the Transportation Worker Identification Card. These opportunities are highlighted in a dedicated “USCG National Maritime Center (NMC) Credentialing” tab for ratings with applicable USCG license alignment on the Navy COOL website.
Educational tools and applications available to Sailors for download include final multiple score (FMS), credentialing opportunities online (Navy COOL), Center for Language, Regional Expertise and Culture, and Navy College Program. Graphic by MC3 Brittany N. Tobin
Sailors will be able to convert their military training records, billet assignment history and other credentialing data to a compatible civilian resume by the end of Fiscal Year 2019. Using those standardized data, Sailors can easily research information on civilian and federal occupations mapped to their ratings. So, how do you get a credential? To get COOL, take these easy steps: • Find and select related credentials. Select credentials and determine your eligibility by using the “find” feature and “checking your eligibility” feature at: https://www.cool.navy.
mil/usn. • Complete voucher and apply. Complete the voucher request for the exam or maintenance fee. • Get credential. Navy COOL is not a credentialing organization. Contact the credentialing organization or test vendor to schedule and take the exam. Report results to Navy COOL. Once you have taken the appropriate exam or have met requirements for re-certification, you are ready to report your results to COOL and other agencies. For questions, contact Navy COOL via the website’s online feedback form or live
chat features or speak with a Navy COOL advisor at 4526683/6664 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Don’t forget to check out our podcasts: We have a series of six Rating Modernization podcasts that accompany this blog series. Sailor 2025 is the Navy’s program to more effectively recruit, develop, manage, reward and retain the force of tomorrow. It consists of approximately 45 living, breathing initiatives and is built on a framework of three pillars – a modern personnel system, a career learning continuum and career readiness.
CNIC works to build more ready, resilient Navy families By Tim McGough Fleet and Family Support Program Public Affairs
Commander, Navy Installations Command (CNIC) is making strides to help forge Navy families into being more ready and resilient than ever before. As the central advocate for Navy families, CNIC is committed to fulfilling requirements laid out by the Chief of Naval Operations’ Navy Family Framework, which describes the role Navy families play in mission success, the responsibilities that the Navy has for families, and outlines organizational goals to enhance the mutual support between the Navy and its families. “When the Navy family’s needs are taken care of, the Sailor can focus on the mission,” Shauna Turner, director of
CNIC’s Navy Family Support Program said. “The Family Support Program portfolio collectively provide programs that ensure Sailors and families are mission ready and resilient, which increases the deployability, assignability and lethality of the force.” One of the first steps CNIC’s Fleet and Family Support Program has taken in response to the priorities outlined by the CNO is a spouse engagement study, which asked for feedback from Navy spouses and leadership and CNIC headquarters staff regarding programs and services administered through Fleet and Family Support Centers (FFSC). “We conducted an online survey, held face-to-face focus groups, and finally we completed our study with online focus groups,” Turner said. “This study gave us the insight on what we needed to do to improve our program and to
better connect with and inform our Navy families.” As a result of feedback received through the study and in response to the CNO’s Navy Family Framework, CNIC also established a governance board with other Navy commands and non-federal agencies to seek out opportunities for program improvements. The primary working group members include Dana Richardson, spouse of Chief of Naval Operations; Dr. Barbara Burke, Navy ombudsman-at-large; Master Chief Petty Officer of the Navy Russell Smith; with Vice Adm. Mary Jackson, commander, Navy Installations Command and chair of the board. Three sub-working groups were established within the board to focus on the key issues identified from the spouse study – awareness, perception, accessibility and training.
The study revealed that a number of Navy spouses are uninformed of FFSC services. Turner explained that through continued communication, Navy spouses will become more aware, engaged, and hopefully the stigma associated with seeking help can be eliminated. “Many Navy spouses as well as commands who are aware of our programs and services view them as primarily reactive, rather than proactive,” Turner said. “We want them to know that the Fleet and Family Support Center should be their first choice, not their last resort.” CNIC’s Fleet and Family Support Programs are offered at 81 locations worldwide, with 58 of those Fleet and Family Support Centers offering a full selection of programs and services.

By Daniel Broadstreet Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division (NSWC PCD) scientists and engineers partnered with academia March 8 and challenged students to a regional SeaPerch competition at the University of West Florida. Students at this year’s event prepared their remotely operated vehicles (ROV) to compete by navigating through an obstacle and a challenge course. Sponsored by the Office of Naval Research and Embry-Riddle University the SeaPerch program provides students with kits equipped with all essential parts to build an underwater robot. “Basically, it’s an underwater ROV built out of PVC pipes, Direct Current motors and a control box,” said Kinsey Taylor, NSWC PCD electrical engineer and SeaPerch course designer. Dan Flisek, NSWC PCD physicist
and technical director for the competition said SeaPerch challenges and regional competitions help provide students with a hands-on approach while learning the STEM disciplines. “Kids learn better with a hands-on activity like these competitions. SeaPerch is particularly applicable for employees at NSWC PCD because many of the skills that students learn while building the vehicles, are the same skills our scientists and engineers use to build underwater vehicles. This program helps get kids interested in robotics and engineering, which will hopefully put them on the path to becoming future NSWC employees,” Flisek said. “It’s like long-range recruiting.” The Office of Naval Research’s SeaPerch web site reports that STEM programs such as SeaPerch are of national concern. “The U.S. has fallen from 3rd to 17th in the world in the number of college graduates in engineering programs. In
the U.S., only 5 percent of science degrees are awarded in engineering, as compared with 50 percent in China. If not addressed, the expected shortage of skilled workers could decrease the U.S.’s global competitiveness and may result in a lack of expertise in missioncritical areas.” According to Halie Cameron, NSWC PCD mechanical engineer and SeaPerch judge, Navy STEM career professionals are partnering with local-area teachers to help mentor and pique students’ STEM-related interests at almost every stage of their education. “We’re volunteering time after work at local-area schools to support as many STEM-related clubs as possible, from elementary to junior high to the high school level as well,” Cameron said. Cameron said support for STEM events like SeaPerch were important for multiple reasons. “Events like SeaPerch encourage
young people to think critically, work in teams, and it opens their eyes to some exciting real-world applications of engineering helping to widen the pool of candidates as future Navy STEM career professionals,” Cameron said. “NSWC PCD needs to be a part of nurturing these bright minds because not only are they potential next-generation warfare center employees, but they are the future of our nation’s innovation.” NSWC PCD STEM Outreach Program Manager Paige George said personally mentoring students was key to academic success. “Providing students with face to face contact with Navy scientists and engineers helps broaden their understanding of how diverse the STEM disciplines are,” George said. According to George, out of the 76 teams competing, one high school team and one middle school team will continue on to the National Competition in early June.

April is Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month 2019 them e : ‘ Pro t e c t ing ou r P eo ple P rot e ct s o u r M issio n ’
Make the commitment to end sexual assault From Chief of Naval Personnel Public Affairs
WASHINGTON (NNS) – The Navy joins the Department of Defense (DoD) and the nation in observance of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month (SAAPM) this April. The continuation of the theme “Protecting Our People Protects Our Mission,” established by the DoD Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Office, underpins the idea that our people are our most important strategic resource and that operational excellence depends on supporting our personnel, protecting our shipmates and safeguarding team cohesion. “Make the Commitment” is the call to action for the Navy. The theme and call to action encourage all members of the Navy team to commit to promoting a culture that does not tolerate sexual assault. “I am committed to eliminating the scourge of sexual assault and sexual harassment across the Department of the Navy,” Secretary of the Navy Richard V. Spencer said. “Sexual assault and sexual harassment are unacceptable threats to unit cohesion and cause long term physical and mental harm to those affected. We owe our Sailors, Marines and civilians a safe, secure and professional environment as they serve our Navy and nation. “Tolerating toxic behaviors within our ranks impedes our ability to fight and win wars by eroding trust and degrading individuals who contribute to the mission. This awareness month is designed to enhance yearround efforts to eliminate the crime of sexual assault and ensure all Sailors are treated with dignity and respect.” “Sexual Assault is a toxic threat that harms us all. It must

stop, and it will, with engaged leadership and teamwork – in our divisions, squads, and watch teams. There is no room for bystanders in the Navy,” Chief of Naval Operations Adm. John Richardson said. “Our Navy Team makes itself stronger when we build each other up, when we encourage ‘best ever’ performance, and we strive for excellence. When we find and hold perpetrators accountable. When we destroy our enemies. Sexual assault is an enemy. And it’s time to end it.” SAAPM provides the Navy with the opportunity to highlight programs and initiatives that educate Sailors, support victims, and encourage shipmates to take an active role in making a commitment to preventing, reporting, and eliminating sexual assault in the force.

rassment and assault, in person or online, violates the Navy’s core values and is not tolerated. In an effort to eliminate instances of sexual assault, Navy leadership has issued guidance on online misconduct, established counselors within the Fleet in addition to family support centers, improved personnel management processes to better respond to occurrences of sexual assault, encouraged bystander intervention and leveraged technology to remove stigma and barriers associated with seeking help following a sexual assault. In addition to the programs and initiatives within the Fleet, Secretary of the Navy Richard Spencer is hosting, along with the Secretaries of the Army and Air Force, the National Discussion on Sexual Assault
and Sexual Harassment at America’s Colleges, Universities and Service Academies at the U.S. Naval Academy this month. This forum will provide the opportunity to bring together leading experts and leaders from civilian higher education institutions to better understand and address the challenge of eliminating sexual assault and sexual harassment on college and university campuses across the nation to promote safe and healthy learning environments. Preventing, reporting and eliminating sexual harassment and assault, starting with midshipmen and cadets, strengthens the force by promoting professionalism, respect and trust within the Service Academy campuses and broader DoD communities.

NETC domain leaders participate in offsite From Naval Education and Training Command Public Affairs
ommanding officers and directors from Naval Education and Training Command’s learning centers and training support centers gathered for an offsite meeting, March 19 to 20. Hosted by NETC’s deputy for training operations, the leaders came together to build upon previous work focused around the theme of “Great Power Competition” and to develop topics and working groups ahead of the fall NETC commanders conference. They discussed a variety of issues from top-level Navy initiatives to what it takes day-to-day to operate a training organization, such as manpower, facilities and information technology. “Our objectives were to focus on three key areas: Ready, Relevant Learning; Manpower, Personnel, Training and Education (MPT&E) Transformation; and leadership development,” Capt. Edward Heflin, NETC’s deputy for training operations said. “The timing is right as a number of factors and pieces are falling into place to drive to the forefront our ability to develop a more effective training continuum for our Sailors and our Navy.” Ready, Relevant Learning is one of the three pillars of
Sailor 2025 and is a change to the current enlisted accession training pipeline in order to provide the right training, at the right time, in the right way. Traditionally, the Navy’s training process has frontloaded Sailors with much of their required training for their entire career at accession-level “A” and “C” schools. Much of that foundational training has often focused well beyond the scope of what new Sailors are expected to perform during their first few years. RRL as a modernization effort requires coordination across multiple stakeholders throughout the Navy, including the NETC domain leadership, to meet future fleet requirements. So far, the Block Learning phase has identified and redistributed accessionlevel training at points in a Sailor’s career when he or she needs it as part of a career-long learning continuum. NETC leaders are looking to the next phase of modern delivery at the point of need, with modernized training content and

multiple delivery options to accelerate learning, minimize atrophy and provide on-the-job performance support. The offsite participants also discussed how MPT&E Transformation intersects with Navy training. Transformation is significantly and systemically improving MPT&E performance, productivity, and cost efficiencies in all aspects of personnel readiness processes. Over the next several years, the MPT&E Transformation is changing how human resources services are offered throughout a Sailor’s entire “Hire-toRetire” lifecycle and improve
fleet combat readiness. The third key area the group focused on – leadership development – emphasizes character and toughness. With some additional organizational changes in the works, ensuring how the Navy develops leaders who demonstrate both operational excellence and strong character at every level of seniority, starting when a recruit enters bootcamp to initial training and beyond, is now a part of NETC’s vision of a more effective learning continuum. NETC recruits and trains those who serve in the U.S.
Navy, taking them from “street to fleet” by transforming civilians into highly skilled, operational, and combat-ready warfighters, while providing the tools and opportunities for continuous learning and development.

Fans voted whether to sign with the Twins or the Padres through a poll. This allocation of control concerning the future of the franchise was a demonstration of the Wahoos’ commitment to the fan experience, Venn said. “Obviously, any baseball team wants to win games,” Venn said. “But we, as a minor league team, don’t get to choose our players, so we don’t get to choose whether we win or not. What we do control is the fan experience.” On the field, the 2019 coaching staff has been announced. This season will see the addition of pitching coaches Justin Willard and Cibney Bello, train-
By Matthew Hanimov Editorial Intern As the Blue Wahoos prepare to take the field for their eighth season, fans can look forward to the same game day experience they’ve come to expect since 2012, and to cheering on the home team in its new era under the Minnesota Twins. Similar to last year, fans of the Blue Wahoos should expect new amenities and promotions at the stadium. The biggest on-the-field change comes from the new coaching staff and a new affiliation with the Twins. Last year, the Blue Wahoos chose not to renew their contract with the Cincinnati Reds instead signed a two-year affiliation deal with the Minnesota Twins. Twins’ spokesman Daniel Venn said, “the Twins have one of the best farm systems
er Davey Lacroix, hitting coach Steve Singleton, strength coach Travis Koon, and Manager Ramon Borrego. Of the new coaching staff, Borrego is the most experienced and perhaps the best asset to the Wahoos’ arsenal this season. Borrego comes to the Wahoos with fourteen seasons of coaching experience and a seven-season playing career in which he attained AAA status. Borrego coached the Ft. Myers Miracle, Single-A affiliate that won the league championship in 2018. “He’s been in the Minnesota Twins organization for pretty much forever, around fifteen years or so,” Venn said. This season also sees the return of the promotional schedule. The regular promotions are comprised of Military Mondays and Giveback Mondays, Fat Tuesdays, Social Media Wednesdays, and sees the return of Thirsty Thursdays, Giveaway Fridays, Firework Saturdays Family Sundays from last season. Every home game will feature a promotion of some sort. The Blue Wahoos begin the season April 4 in Mobile against the Baybears and will return to Pensacola for their first home game against the Chattanooga Lookouts, April 11.
