Brian Joros

Successful Baseball Coach

Brian Joros

Brian Joros gave back to his community while living in Boca Raton, Florida. From 2005 to 2009, Joros coached the baseball team at West Boca Raton High School. Joros drew from his experience as a collegiate baseball player for Purdue University, and a brief professional career. He relished the opportunity to be on the baseball diamond again, teaching young players how to play the game that he loves.

Brian Joros: Leader in Palm Beach

Brian Joros is a prominent leader in the West Palm Beach community in Florida. A lifelong baseball lover, Joros has coached two local high school teams to great success over the past decade. He took over as West Boca Raton High School head baseball coach in 2005 and proceeded to coach the team to 93 wins and a Regional Championship title during his five season tenure. Joros also took over a much less heralded team at Royal Palm Beach High School and turned the program around, taking the team to its first District playoff game in ten years his first year, and capturing a District Championship title his second year.

Brian Joros is also a business leader in the community in addition to being a leader on the baseball field. Joros sold his sports gear company TSG Sportswear to Global Industries in 2012 for an undisclosed amount. The business was successful in large part due to Joros’ experience on the baseball field as a player and as a coach. Joros played for Purdue University in the late nineties and even played a few seasons as a professional in the Minor Leagues.

Brian Joros now works as the director of the Grand Slam National Tournament, which he founded. Joros is responsible for recruiting the 14 teams that participate in this annual tournament, handling the organizations finances, and keeping the organization involved in community to court sponsors and support from vendors and nonprofits. Joros says that he misses competing, but he loves baseball as a sport and is glad that he can be involved in the development of young players again.

Brian Joros: District Title

Brian Joros has been one of the best high school baseball coaches in the state of Florida for more than fourteen years. His career win-loss record as a coach is 215-121. He draws on his experience as a collegiate player for Purdue University, where he earned All-Big Ten honors in 1998, and played for a few years professionally in the minor leagues.

Brian Joros says that his greatest success was his time with the Royal Palm Beach High School team. He took over the Wildcats in 2011, when the team was in the midst of a decade long playoff drought. After what Joros considers a rebuilding year, the Wildcats won 22 games in 2012 and its first district title in its history. Joros says his experience as the Wildcats coach was a learning experience for him, even after over a decade in coaching and a lifetime on the baseball diamond. Never before had Joros had to build a team up almost from scratch to a consistent contender. The talent was there, of course, but Joros says he learned as much from the kids as they did from him. He called his players at Royal Palm Beach “very coachable” and marveled publicly about their ability to buy in to the culture and the system, something that Joros knows from experience is never an easy feat.

Brian Joros says that the turning point for the team came after a upset win his first year against his former team, West Boca Raton High School, in the first round of the district playoffs, in 2011.

Brian Joros - Stealing Bases

Brian Joros is a seasoned baseball coach who knows all of the tricks to getting more points on the board. That includes stealing bases, which is how many runners manage to get to the next base without waiting for the next hit. Batters, when on base, can steal the next base at just about any moment; however, they need to be careful because the other team is always watching.

One of the most common steals is when the pitcher is getting ready to pitch, you will often see pitchers check the bases before they throw the ball, which means that they are looking out for potential base stealers.

Those who are stealing the bases will often only do so if there is no one in front of them, as they cannot stand on the same base as one of their teammates. When the stealer has a runner in front of him that does not move bases, it traps the stealer because he has to run back to his base before the ball can be thrown at the baseman, resulting in an out. And sometimes, a free runner still gets stuck between two bases as those basemen toss the ball to each other in a situation that is known as a “pickle”.

Brian Joros - How to Run a Non-Profit

Brian Joros is a business professional, baseball coach and Founder and Director of the National Grand Slam Baseball Tournament, an annual event that raises thousands of dollars for local athletic facilities and other such resources to help future professional athletes hone their talents.

Running a non-profit requires the ability to perform a number of tasks. But among the most important of those potential tasks are bookkeeping and community outreach. Through outreach efforts, you can get your name out and also network with people who could potentially become future volunteers. Volunteers will be a necessary workforce for your non-profit, although more times than not there is plenty of room to bring on paid workers as well.

Bookkeeping is important because in many cases, a 501 (c) 3 organization like NGSBT has a certain level of government sponsorship that allows them to collect subsidies as well as let donors reap the benefits of a tax write-off donation. But in order to maintain this status, a 501c3 must comply with a strict set of regulations that make it qualify as a non-profit entity in the eyes of the Internal Revenue Service, who regulates the revenue of non-profits and other organizations.
