WHO WAS JOE KASBERGER?
Joe Kasberger was a high school and college baseball pitcher from The Dalles, a town in Oregon, who dedicated over 30 years of his life to high school baseball in the city of Newark. He served as baseball coach at St. Benedict’s Prep in Newark from 1930 to 1968. During his time in Newark, he became known as one of the greatest coaches in New Jersey high school history. His baseball teams once won 64 consecutive games over a four-year period and posted 593(W)-137(L)-3(T) in baseball. Kasberger died in 1969 and was inducted into the Newark Athletic Hall of Fame in 1988. The North Newark Little League is proud of Joe Kasberger and look forward to playing on a re-dedicated Kasberger Field in the Spring of 2010.
