Having stayed in the baseball arena for some time, Brian Joros has a peculiar way of identifying a baseball talent. His many years as a coach in Florida has seen him win several accolades including securing a first-ever district championship title with the Royal Palm Beach Wildcats. Furthermore, for three times, Brian has won the Palm Beach County Coach of the Year; also a two-time winner of the Palm Beach County South Conference Coach of the Year.
Chase Greene was one of the players whose performance and tremendous speed caught the coach’s attention. Comparing Greene with Lakewood’s Lastings Milledge, Brian stated that He was “one of the fastest players I’ve ever seen at any level.” By comparing Greene with Milledge, Joros was, in essence, proving the former to be highly talented since the latter’s record is incredible. Lastings Milledge was named Major League Baseball player while playing for several teams including New York Mets and Washington Nationals.
According to Brian, Greene’s potential is evidenced by the level of dedication the player exhibits. Additionally, Chase demonstrates tremendous levels of focus coupled with a strong desire for improvement. It is as if the kid will not relent until his goal is achieved. As a result, Brian asserts that Chase is already a professional whose future aspirations are evident to everybody. Brian continues to state that while different kids have their career preferences such as doctors and accountants, Chase’s is to play a major role in the baseball league. This commitment is underlined by the player’s go-get –it attitude. The hard-work, dedication and, most importantly, the teachable spirit in Greene is simply amazing. Surprisingly, this inference by Brian Joros was confirmed when Chase Greene was included in the New York Mets team in the seventh round of the 2009 Major League Baseball draft.
For at least 14 years, Brian Joros has dominated as a high school baseball coach in Florida. His winning reputation is evident to all as he has managed a 215-121 overall win-loss record in various coaching jobs.
He is remembered for the performance he had with the Royal Palm Beach high school. Prior to his arrival, the school struggled to compete. Worse still, it had failed to qualify for regional baseball playoffs since 2001. Incredibly, upon takeover, Brian guided the team to a 22-5 win-loss record, subsequently winning its first-ever district title.
Interestingly, the coach shows a great character of humility by attributing the success to the senior players. Brian Joros states that the senior players set a foundation that ensures future success. According to the coach, “Our guys are very coachable. They worked very hard. I think it took us a year to implement our system, and then these guys bought in and played hard.”
Brian had his climax moment as a coach when he led the Wildcats to humiliating Boca Raton, the club formerly coached by Brian, by beating them in the first round of the district playoffs.
Since then, the club has remained in a prolific form. Just like their coach, the Wildcats players’ sense of humility was evidenced by their decision to attribute the victory to the coach and the staff at large. They noted that without their sacrificial approaches, “would have never won our first district championship” one player was quoted. The players recognized that it through the hard work of the staff coupled with the amazing skills of Brian Joros that brought them victory.
With everything remaining intact, the players expressed optimism of remaining a top team as well as participating in the regional tournaments again especially when Brian remains at the helm.
Brian Joros’ sterling performance as a high school baseball coach has elevated him to near legend status in Florida. Most of the teams he has managed have gone on to win several records. For instance, the Royal Palm Beach Wildcats clinched the district championship; also guided the team to the regional playoff tournament. Also, Brian has won several awards as a coach including the Palm Beach County Coach of the Year thrice and Palm Beach County South Conference Coach of the Year twice.
His prowess was recognized even by his competitors who openly admired his expertise. One competitor who was asked to name his preferred coach name Brian Joros as the best coach. This competitor’s response was based more on the performance Brian had shown while coaching the West Boca high school than their friendship. His admiration of Brian was catalyzed by the latter’s tendency to do his homework, scouting the teams and remaining aggressive to win.
The coach continues to explain that Brian was dreaded by other coaches as he seemed scary to face. The reason being, he keenly analyzed his opponents in a bid to outsmart their tactics and seemed to succeed. He achieved this by having at least eight guys watching every decision on the pitch and jotting it down. As a result, this proved a hectic to many coaches who had to resort to other communication tactics. “I always had to change my signs and be aware that they were always on me,” stated the coach.
Brian Joros has kept an outstanding record with 215 wins and only 121 losses in his time as a high school baseball coach. With each day offering a room for improvement, he optimistic of more future glory as a coach. Currently, he is a member of Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Florida Coaches Association.

Senior second baseman Connor Brennan also has made tremendous strides, particularly defensively after being what Joros described as a defensive liability last season.
“In my 14 years coaching, this is the most coachable group of kids I’ve ever had,” Joros said. “They buy in to what we’re trying to teach.”
Strong pitching and solid defense have been staples of Joros teams, and this year’s Royal Palm Beach squad is no different.
“We have pitchers who can throw strikes, hold runners and field their position,” Joros said. “I’ve had more talented staffs, but none more coachable. The defense has been great. We’re small ball to a ‘T’. I like our future a lot.””
