|DeSales High School Baseball |
Since 1986, the DeSales High School baseball team has become a dominant dynasty. During that time, the Irish have compiled an overall record of 486-93, including 15 first-place finishes, three second-place finishes, and one third-place finish. They have failed to reach the final four only twice during that same time span. Furthermore, DeSales has played the majority of its nonleague games versus 3A and 4A classifications. Overall, the team has a .500 winning percentage against this type of competition.
Irish Head Coach Kim Cox has developed and implemented through the Catholic faith a highly successful and respected program for developing teams on and off the field. When playing against Coach Cox’s teams you knew three things: You will be facing a well-trained, cohesive team; you will be facing a team that plays with passion; and you will be facing a team that plays hard, but plays with fairness, integrity, and sportsmanship. DeSales’ longest postseason winning streak is 30, but, with the current streak at 29 and Coach Cox still at the helm, the tradition seems far from over.
