Last year, DSS, in Mannessen's first season as Head Coach with the club, captured the title in the First Division and promoted.
This year, the Haarlem-based club returned to the big league after a 24-year absence.
After completion of the regular season, DSS shared seventh place with Olympia Haarlem with a 10-22 record.
DSS was then one of four teams in the Bottom-4 Ranking Pool to decide the relegation.
On September 11, the last day of the 3-week series, Olympia won twice vs. Euro Stars, while DSS was shutout twice by Twins, meaning the Haarlem-club relegated back to the First Division.
Through last year, Presburg played for the baseball-team of First Divisionist DSS, but he retired after the season.
This year, he played on a lower level and was a member of the second baseball-team of DSS, which played in the Fourth Division.
Dennis' father George Presburg led the Dutch National Softball Team in 1991-1993.
Presburg Sr. also led Heiloo (1985 and 1987) and Alcmaria Victrix (1999) when these teams played in the Dutch big league.
