Walsh Jesuit hires Joseph Bowers to serve as baseball coach

Walsh Jesuit High School has named Joseph Bowers as its baseball coach.

Bowers, a 2008 Walsh Jesuit graduate, takes over a program that was led by Chris Kaczmar for the past 26 years.

Kaczmar, a 1988 Walsh Jesuit graduate, announced during the 2021-2022 school year that he was stepping away from coaching to spend more time with his family.

Bowers played football, basketball and baseball at WJ. He played baseball under Kaczmar, and then was a member of the University of Mount Union baseball team under coach Paul Hesse.

Bowers earned a Bachelor’s degree in Education from Mount Union, and has completed 10 years as a Health and Physical Education teacher for Akron Public Schools. He is currently a middle school teacher at Jennings Community Learning Center in North Hill.
