PREP TABS A NEW BASEBALL COACH
Just over a month after Dave Hess retired following nine years of great success as Prep’s baseball coach, the program has found his replacement. Josh Constable has been named as the Ramblers new bench boss.
Constable was integral in establishing the Erie Steelheads baseball organization in 2013 and currently serves as their Chairman of the Board. Over the last four years, he has managed six teams at the competitive travel baseball level while overseeing player development within the club and coordinating team training regimens. Professionally he is employed by North American Partners in Anesthesia and on staff at UPMC Hamot Medical Center where he serves as the Chairman of the Department of Anesthesiology.
“The interview process, selection committee, and administrative staff have confirmed my views that Cathedral Prep’s strength lies within its leadership team,” Constable said. “I am thankful and appreciative of this opportunity to be an integral member of an institution with a framework rich in tradition and a strong vision for the future. I look to uphold the success with honor heritage that Coach Hess has embedded within this baseball team. I understand the expectations are high and I will not shy away from them.”
The school had a large number of applicants before settling on Constable. “We feel Josh is a great fit to run this program,” said Director of Athletics Bill Flanagan. “He has a great knowledge of the game, is accustom to coaching and teaching young student-athletes and we believe he will bring an infectious energy to Prep baseball.”
Josh Constable will be made available to the media today beginning at 3pm at the Prep & Villa Events Center. You can also contact him via phone at (814) 553-6824.
