The legacy of Watkinson baseball: Father Charlie Geerts was the first Watkinson baseball coach, beginning back in the 1940s. As reported in the summer 2005 issue of Watkinson News, “Baseball went into hiatus at Watkinson in the mid-1980s, replaced by the rising popularity of lacrosse.” Baseball returned to Watkinson in 2004 buoyed by the enthusiasm of Tom Newman ’06 and David Bray ’06 under the coaching of former faculty member George Sailor. Then ultimate frisbee rose in popularity and eroded the numbers to field a baseball team once again. In spring of 2019, fueled by the energy and commitment of Adam J. ’21 under the coaching of Rob Dietelbaum, baseball returned again.
