On June 16, 2019 Diamond Club Aces coaches John Proctor and Rich McCoy resigned effective the end of the 2019 season. They informed club President Jason Walker that they are moving to another organization.
Diamond Club President Jason Walker said "I want to thank John and Rich for captaining the ship this past season. They are both very good coaches and even better individuals. In addition to that both of their daughters are wonderful young ladies who will be missed. John told me that he made what he felt was the best decision for his daughter. I respect that 100%. Nothing but appreciation to those two families and we wish them the best of luck."
Walker also confirmed that DC will still have a strong team in the 14A/Select division in 2019. While he indicated would move away from the "Aces" name out of respect for another national organization, that quality team will still represent Diamond Club locally, regionally and nationally.
Walker first built the Aces in 2016-2017. He lead them to an A level World Series championship and won 3 other A tournament championships that year. Along with coaches Justina Frost and Kylie Perkins this team was a force in the midwest. Part way through the 2017-2018 season club and family obligations required Walker to pass the team on to John Proctor. In the fall of 2018 John brought Rich in for this season.
