McBean Stadium was rocking on Friday for Opening Night, with an attendance of 1,454. Anthony Perez (Cal State East Bay) set the tone early, with four scoreless innings, zero walks and five strikeouts, which put him in line for the win. 

Perez was able to escape a jam in the 1st inning, thanks in part to a beautifully turned double play by SS JT Maloney (Sac City) and 2B Cade Sanchez (Texas A&M Corpus Christi). 

The Potters bats came to life quickly in the second inning, starting with a double down the line from Brandon Springer (William Jessup). Landon Weiss (William Jessup), who got the call from first year manager Jon Peters to join the Potters three days prior to Opening Night, got the scoring started with an RBI single to center field, knocking in his William Jessup teammate. Cade Sanchez followed with a two-run single to extend the Potters lead to 4-0 after two innings. 

The bullpen picked up right where Perez left off. Logan Bell (Bowling Green State) went two innings, notching three strikeouts, and allowing one unearned run, on an error by LF Zack Malone (Sacramento State), which plated the Knicks second run of the game. 

Following the error, Bell found himself in a tight situation. With the help of 1,454 energetic Potter fans, he was able to record a crucial strikeout of Joey Taddie to end the inning. 

Peyton Stumbo (UNR) closed it out for the Potters with two scoreless innings, striking out four. Stumbo earned the save as well, resulting in a final score of 5-2. 

The Potters take game one of the three-game series with the Novato Knicks, and will take the field again tomorrow at 6:05 PM @ McBean Stadium for Strikeout Cancer Night with fireworks after the game. 


Jonathan Peters Promoted to Manager


Thursday, January 19, 2023



Lincoln, CA - The Lincoln Potters have promoted long-time assistant coach Jonathan Peters to field manager for the 2023 season. Peters has served under Ryan Stevens as the head assistant and third-base coach since 2018.

“The Potters are a ground up organization and there is no more grass roots member of our team than JP. He knows where we came from and where we expect to be at the end of 2023 and we look forward to his leadership on the field” Owner Clifton Talyor on Peters' promotion.

Peters spent several years as an assistant coach at Folsom Lake College and now runs one of the most successful youth baseball organizations and hitting facilities in the region.

“He is more than qualified to take the Potters to the next level and bring a CCL Championship to its rightful home” former Manager Ryan Stevens said.

Originally from Chino, CA Peters was a standout baseball player at Chino High School, earning All-League, All-County, and All-CIF honors. He continued his playing career at Mt. San Antonio Community College for two years and earned a scholarship to NCAA Division II powerhouse Chico State. He helped lead the Wildcats to an appearance in the NCAA DII World Series in 2012.

“We are excited about where this program is going. Ryan left a solid foundation for JP to build on and we think the sky is the limit for him and the Potters as he takes the next step in his coaching career.” Potters General Manager Matt Lundgren added.

The 33-year-old first-year manager has already hit the ground running assembling his staff and recruiting a talented roster. Stay tuned for a follow up announcement outlining the coaching staff, which will be comprised of some familiar faces.
