Brian Joros has an outstanding eye for baseball talent. He is a longtime high school baseball coach in Florida, where he has led most of his teams to winning seasons, and took the Royal Palm Beach Wildcats to their first-ever district championship and the regional playoff tournament. Brian Joros was named the Palm Beach County Coach of the Year three times, and the Palm Beach County South Conference Coach of the Year twice.
One of the players who impressed Brian Joros the most was Chase Greene. “Chase has breathtaking speed,” he observed. “He is one of the fastest players I’ve ever seen at any level.” He said the only high school player with similar speed was Lastings Milledge, who played at Lakewood Ranch in Bradenton, Florida, and went on to become a Major League Baseball player with the New York Mets, the Washington Nationals, and other teams.
In the considered opinion of Brian Joros, Chase Greene had a lot of potential because he was very dedicated. “Chase has tremendous focus and a burning desire to get better,” he said. “He is already a professional in terms of approach to the game. Some kids want to be doctors, some kids want to be accountants. Chase wants to be a major league baseball player and is willing to do whatever it takes to make that dream a reality.”
The judgment of Brian Joros proved to be very accurate. Chase Greene was selected by the New York Mets in the seventh round of the 2009 Major League Baseball draft.
