Just a few days after reigning Dutch champion Neptunus Rotterdam announced that Steve Janssen will step down as manager due to his current position as pitching coach for the Dutch National Team, club president Frans van Aalen confirmed in an interview with TV Rijnmond that Jan Collins will take over. The former catcher is with Neptunus as a player and coach since 36 years. He served as assistant coach for Janssen in the past two seasons. Neptunus won its second consecutive championship this September after winning the Holland Series against L&D Amsterdam in six games.
