Coach: Rommel Garcia
GET TO KNOW THE COACH!
Hello everyone. My name is Mr. Mel Garcia and I am the new Head Varsity Baseball Coach at St. Francis de Sales High School. I'm heading into my 16th year of coaching baseball with this being my 6th year as a Head Coach. Previous schools that I have coached at include: Tinley Park High School, UHigh (Chicago), CICS Longwood Academy, the Latin School of Chicago, and CICS Ralph Ellison High School. I also coach the Illinois Mavericks 18U travel team during the summer months where our main goal for that program is to expose student-athletes to colleges in hope of furthering their education in college through the game of baseball.
I'm an elementary school P.E./Health teacher in the suburb of Burnham, Illinois and I'm also a basketball coach for the school as well. I currently reside in Griffith, Indiana with my dogs Buster and Rusty and on my down time away from coaching or playing, I spend it with them.
It has been a lifelong dream of mine to coach in the Chicago Catholic League and being able to do so at such a prestigious school such as St. Francis de Sales is an added bonus. I look forward to not only being a coach at St. Francis, but being a productive member of the East Side community and Archdiocese of Chicago for many years to come.
Mr. Mel Garcia
