Persistent - continuing steadfastly or firmly in some purpose or course of action, especially in spite of opposition or difficulty - describes 2024 Chautauqua Sports Hall of Fame inductee Douglas Kaltenbach to a tee. And not just a batting tee.

For 30 years, 1987-2017, Doug was the head coach of the highly successful Westfield Wolverines Varsity Baseball Team. His 476 wins is the third most victories in Chautauqua County baseball history. With only 154 losses, his winning percentage was over 75%.

His teams won 14 Chautauqua County Athletic Association division titles, with 6 of those titles being in a row from 2011-2017. During the period of 2014-2017, Westfield strung together a record setting 55 league victories in a row.

He skippered the Wolverines to 8 Section VI final game appearances and won Section VI titles in 2015 and 2016. The 2015 squad was NYSPHSAA Far West Regional Champions and competed in the New York State finals, where they finished second in New York state.
