Kennedy Catholic to Dedicate Baseball Field to Joe Faccone, former coach
On Friday, March 28, Kennedy Catholic High School will dedicate their home baseball field to long-time coach and staff member, Joe Faccone. The field will be re-named Faccone Field.
Mr. Faccone was the head baseball coach for the Kennedy Catholic Lancers from 1970-2007. He won 501 games, 7 league championships, 2 state championships, and won 4 Coach of the Year awards.
In 1974, Mr. Faccone and his father, Dominic Faccone, led the project to design and construct the baseball field. Along with many volunteers, they dedicated countless hours to build the field which has served as the Lancers home field since.
Joe has coached and taught hundreds of students including young men such as Floyd Bannister who went on to play professional baseball. He has touched the lives of thousands over the last four decades. He currently works part time in the advancement office at Kennedy Catholic planning two annual scholarship dinner events.
The dedication ceremony will take place at 3:30pm on the baseball field prior to a 4pm varsity game. Mr. Faccone will throw out the first ceremonial pitch. A reception will follow. In the event of rain, the dedication will take place at 3:45pm inside the school.
