Joliet Central baseball thanks all participants in the 2nd annual Joliet Central Baseball Winter Skills Clinic. We had a great group of campers this year and look forward to seeing everyone next year!!!
JTC BASEBALL FANS:
Welcome to year five of varsity baseball at Joliet Township - Central campus.
My name is Kevin Fitzgerald and I am a 2005 graduate of Joliet West. I have worked and coached at Joliet West and Joliet Central over the past 5 years. During my time at Joliet West as a player, we were combined as Steelmen and I have always thought of myself as a Steelmen. "Once a Steelmen, always a Steelmen". I currently teach U.S. History, Law, and Economics. As a graduate of the district, I look forward to coaching and teaching the student-athletes at Joliet Central High School.
The baseball coaching staff is dedicated to developing young men who have the ability to work towards a common goal. We will set standards which our program will follow and will create an atmosphere in which players leave as better athletes, and more importantly, positive members of society.
Self-confidence and motivation will be at the forefront of our philosophy. It is our belief that student-athletes who believe in themselves and have the encouragement of those around them will be successful on and off the baseball field. There is no room for negativity in a sport which allows a person to be successful even after failing 7 out 10 times at the plate. Athletes and parents who buy-in to this philosophy will be able to see how this mentality can lead to TEAM success on the field.
