Earlier this month, on April 12, it was announced that Manager Brian Farley stepped down for personal reasons. It is not expected that an official successor will be named before the World Port Tournament, as an intern solution will be created for the tournament.

While studying at Indian River Community College in Florida, Evert-Jan 't Hoen was drafted in the 1995 MLB Amateur Draft by the then-called California Angels, with whom he signed a professional contract. The middle infielder stayed his entire professional career with the Angels, which were renamed in Anaheim Angels in 1997 and nowadays are known as the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

't Hoen made his professional debut in 1996 when he played in 18 games for the Single-A Short Season team of the Angels. He then played at the Single-A level in 1997 and 1998, before being promoted to Double-A in the 1999 season. In that same year, 't Hoen also played in nine games for the Edmonton Trappers in Triple-A.

In 2000 and 2001, Evert-Jan 't Hoen again played in Double-A and Triple-A, but never got the call to join the Major League-team. After the 2001 season, he was released and returned to the Netherlands. In six professional seasons, he played in 485 minor league-games, including 66 in Triple-A.

When he came back to the Netherlands, 't Hoen joined Neptunus, where he played until the 2007 season. He then retired due to an injury. After starting his career at Alphians, 't Hoen made his Dutch big league-debut in 1994 playing for Twins, where he also played in 1995 and 1996, before he started his professional career.

In 1994, 't Hoen made his debut in the Dutch Team and in that year participated in the Haarlem Baseball Week and the World Championship in Nicaragua. 't Hoen also played for the Orange squad in 1995 and 1996, participating in the Olympic Games in Atlanta (USA). He then was not eligible to play for the National Team due to his professional status in 1997 and 1998. But when active and former professional players became eligible again for national teams, he returned in 1999. 't Hoen remained with the Dutch Team through 2005 and participated in the Olympic Games of 2000 (Sydney, Australia) and 2004 (Athens, Greece). He also participated in three more World Championships. 't Hoen also was with the Dutch Team in four European Championships, three Intercontinental Cups, four Haarlem Baseball Weeks and two World Port Tournaments. 't Hoen concluded his National Team-career in 2005 during the World Championship in the Netherlands. In total, he appeared in 123 games for the national squad.

After he concluded his playing career, 't Hoen started coaching. Since 2008, he was the executive coordinator of Unicorns and since 2009, he was one of the coaches of DOOR Tridents, the Rookie League-team of Neptunus. On August 30 last year, DOOR Neptunus announced that 't Hoen would become the Head Coach of its new coaching-staff in 2013.
