PROVIDENCE CATHOLIC CELTICS BASEBALL

 

Providence Catholic Baseball is recognized as one of Illinois’ top baseball programs and home of the 5X state Champions, which is the most in Illinois history.  The Celtics compete in one of the top baseball conferences in the country, the Chicago Catholic League.  We have had numerous players move on to play collegiately as well as professionally.  We offer baseball at three levels:  freshman, sophomore, and varsity.

 

Tom Dedin Field

The Providence Catholic baseball team plays on one of the finest facilities in the state of Illinois.  Renovated in 2008, Tom Dedin Field has become a premier location for exciting Celtic Baseball!   Some of the highlights of Tom Dedin Fied include a cedar wood outfield fence, professional style “in ground” dugouts made of brick with a heater installed into the varsity dugout as well as a 3 foot brick wall backstop with netting.  The press box is located on the 2nd floor of the home dugout.  Inside the press box is a media area as well as a coach’s office and a locker room for the Celtic baseball players.  20 foot foul poles stand on each foul line.  Tom Dedin Field also has a 9-inning scoreboard with a color message board that gives an even more professional look and in the fall of 2017 the infield dirt was changed to DuraEdge, which is used by numerous MLB teams.  Bleachers wrap around home plate and comfortably seats 486 fans and is ADA approved.

 

Future plans for Tom Dedin field include lighting Tom Dedin field to host night games.

 

Tom Dedin Field also flourishes due to the irrigation system that covers the entire field.  This system keeps our grass green, healthy, and beautiful throughout the year.

 

3 batting cages are located down the left field line for players to get batting practice at any time.

 

Tom Dedin Field also benefits from a full infield tarp which allows us to play even after the most inclement weather.

 

Tom Dedin field is 330’ feet down each line, 340’ in the alleys and 350’ to center field.

 

Press Box

Providence Baseball is fortunate to get plenty of media coverage throughout the year.  The press box gives media plenty of space for any web cast, sportswriters, radio broadcasters, and photographers.

 

Members of the baseball team and coaching staff have a secure and spacious area to prepare and dress for all home games.  The locker room is accessible from the home dugout with each varsity player getting a professional style open faced locker with name plate.  The locker room is also furnished with 2 TV/video areas.  A coach’s office is located on the first floor of the press box located behind the dugout.  This press box gives our players a “professional” feeling for game days and practices.

 

 

 

 

The Next Level

The Celtics have had much success on the field and in the classroom.  Many of our players have earned both athletic and academic scholarships.  In the past 13 years, 104 Providence Catholic Baseball Players have moved on to various colleges and universities across the country including 31 to Division I schools.

 

Coach Smith

In 14 years as the head coach at Providence Catholic, Coach Smith has helped establish the Celtics as one of the state’s premier programs. Under Smith’s guidance the Celtics have claimed 11 regional titles (2007, 2009, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2019), four sectional titles (2011, 2014, 2015, 2016), four super-sectional titles (2011, 2014, 2015, 2016), Class 4A State Runner-Up finish in 2011, and a historic 3-Peat State Championships in 2014, 2015, and 2016.  Smith has also led his Celtics to back to back to back Chicago Catholic League Championships in 2010, 2011, and 2012.  Coach Smith has been named the Lawless Coach of the Year in 2010 and 2012 as well as the Joliet Herald News Coach of the Year in 2011, the Southtown Star/Beggars Pizza Coach of the Year in 2011, 2015, and 2016 the IHSBCA Area Coach of the year in 2011, and the Class 4A Illinois Coach of the Year in 2014, 2015, and 2016.  He was also given the Ron Santo Inspiration Award from the Hit N Pitch Club of Chicago in 2016.
