New Coach

As I had hoped and pretty much expected, the Claremont Unified School District Board of Education at its Monday meeting officially approved the appointment of Steve Jackson as the new head varsity baseball coach at Claremont High School.

I suspect there will be people in the program who are unsure about this selection, but I think it is an incredible hire for CHS. Six months from now those people will understand. Claremont is fortunate to have him. Steve is a fantastic coach, a bright baseball mind and a good person. And he's fair.

The Claremont Unified School District press release with the announcement is now posted on the Claremont High Baseball Web site.

Wow. I didn't know he had applied. Lucky Claremont kids. They just got a great baseball mind and a heck of a good coach.

Hopefully the parents will sit back (silently for once)and see how their kids like the program!
