Since his hiring as Varsity Baseball Coach in March 2016, Fr. Matt Janeczko (but don't call him Father on the field), has brought a new energy and vision to the Sacred Heart Baseball program. A focus on fundamentals and a game-day approach rooted in preparation and hard work bore immediate fruit, as Sacred Heart rebounded from a 2015 season in which they won only two games. In 2016, Janeczko led the Irish to a 6-8 conference record, upsetting Cathedral Prep in a first round playoff game.
Last year, the Irish also welcomed back two esteemed alumni as assistant coaches, Billy Sacco '68 and Dave Graham '70, both of whom played baseball at the Heart and boast CHSAA Hall of Fame Credentials on their resumes.
Baseball, the Sacred Heart Way, is hard-nosed and old-school: hustle, enthusiasm, and discipline will be the trademarks of all our baseball alumni for years to come.
Rev. Matt Janeczko, OFM Cap.
William "Billy" Sacco '68
Dave Graham '70
