This past Friday we were able to recognize a coach for all of his contributions over the years. It is not too often that we get to recognize an Assistant Coach. Congratulations to long time Coach Jim Pint! Coach Pint was selected as the Indiana High School Baseball Coaches Association District 2 Coach of the Year! What a great honor and very deserving. Before the baseball game this past Friday we were able to recognize Coach Pint in front of his family and Kougar Fans!
Coach Pint has volunteered for the past 22 years as a hitting instructor for the Kougar baseball program. The Kougars won a sectional and Regional in 1999 under his guidance. Kankakee Valley has had 5 IHSBCA North All-Stars in his time here. Coach Pint also coached the Demotte Senior League All-Star team to the state finals in 1997 and 1998. Coach Pint has been married to his wife Linda for 41 years and they have two children, Melissa and James. He graduated from Calumet College of St. Joseph with a B.S. in Business Management.
Once again Congratulations Coach Pint and Thank You for all your hard work over the years!
