Brian Joros: Founder of the National Grand Slam Baseball Tournament

Brian Joros is a respected high school baseball coach in West Palm Beach, Florida. He built his reputation as a winning coach with an eye for talent and an unparalleled dedication to the study of the game. During his illustrious, five season career with West Boca Raton High School from 2005 to 2009, his teams won 93 games and lost only 36. He captured the Regional Championship in 2007 and went on to coach the Royal Palm Beach baseball team, turning it from a struggling team that hadn’t played playoff baseball in a decade into District Champions in 2012. In fact, that year, Royal Palm Beach lost to Joros’ former team in the Regional Championships, West Boca Raton, which had used the culture and the recruiting connections that Joros set up years earlier.

After his time as the successful coach of the Royal Palm Beach Wildcats, Joros founded the National Grand Slam Baseball Tournament, a showcase of some of the best amateur baseball talent in the country. Joros manages the recruitment of 14 high school teams from around the country to play in the tournament, handles the organizations relationships to other nonprofit organizations in the community, and directs a sixteen member board of directors. He is also responsible for recruiting outside vendors and sponsors.

Brian Joros draws from his experience playing baseball for Purdue University, earning All Big Ten distinction in 1998. He played for a time as a professional in the minor leagues as well before earning his Master’s Degree in Education in 2011.
