Longtime varsity baseball coach David Glassey is to be inducted into the California Baseball Coaches’ Association (CBCA) Hall of Honorees. He will be recognized at a special ceremony this Saturday, June 16 during the annual North South baseball series at the University of California, San Diego.
Glassey has coached varsity baseball at Parker for nearly 40 years, winning a number of CIF championships and sending many of his athletes to play at the collegiate and professional levels. He has a career record of over 600 wins and has won nine CIF championships and been named a CIF runner-up seven times throughout his career.
In his final season as Parker’s varsity baseball coach, Glassey’s team finished 22-10 and played in the CIF Division 2 Championship game. Glassey will retire this year after 38 years as coach.
“Coaching gives me the opportunity to help them learn how to deal with failure. Baseball is a game of failure; you fail more than you succeed. I love seeing the dedication of players and seeing them learn many of life’s lessons.”Coach David Glassey
