“You see, you spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball, and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time. “ Jim Bouton
As the 2013 Don Bosco Prep Ironmen prepare to begin a new season, we want to take a moment to thank those that came before us. Our Alumni are responsible for establishing the proud tradition that is today’s Don Bosco Ironmen baseball program. The current players and coaching staff invite you to get involved once again with DBP Baseball.
This new website is intended to bring DBP Baseball back into your life. Not only do we want to keep you updated as to the status of today’s current Varsity, Junior Varsity and Freshman squads but we are encouraging you to send pictures, videos or stories of when you played. We would also love to hear about your current accomplishments on and off the field. This page will be dedicated to our Alumni.
Please take a moment to complete the information below. As we obtain information we will update this page and hopefully it will bring back some great memories and put a smile on your face! This page will also keep you up to date on some alumni events we are planning in the near future. GO BOSCO!
Playing baseball at Bosco for four years helped make me the person I am today. The men I played with I can truly call my brothers for life; the battles we fought on the diamond made our bond stronger than anyones. Coach Roons, Coach Duff, Coach Lou, and Coach Wlads are the best tandum of coaches I have ever been surrounded with. Their understanding of the game and ability to pass their knowledge on to their players is second to none. Bosco baseball isn’t just one of the the best high school baseball programs in the country, but is also a family. There is no bigger privilege than putting on that maroon and white uniform. Ironman for life
Going to Bosco was one of the best decisions I have ever made. The feeling of brotherhood and family is represented to the fullest. But being part of a sport at this school is something that only a select few get to do. We are not just teammates, but we are brothers. I just want to take the time to say my thanks to all the families that made me feel like such an important part in the program; from freshman families and parents on up. As coach Rooney expressed from day one, we aren’t a team; we are a program, a family. I had a dream of being able to put that Ironman jersey for a long time and that opportunity came my senior year. I would like to thank our coaches for that. Coach Rooney, Coach Lou, Coach Dwyer and Coach Wladyka are the best coaches that I have ever had the opportunity to work with and be coached by. Not only were they our coaches, but they were people we could always talk to. Anyone who graduated from Bosco would tell you that they would love to be able to put that jersey on one more time, so advice for the current players and players to come, enjoy it. Ironmen for life!
