Rob Dibble to Coach High School Baseball


So it seems that former Reds pitcher and “Nasty Boy” member Rob Dibble coaches high school baseball. For the past two years, he’s been the coach at Oaks Christian High (although there is no mention on the Oaks Christian website), but Dibs will now become the next head coach for the Calabasas High boys baseball team.

This is according to a report from ESPN (with a huge HT to Craig Calcaterra of Hardball Talk).

Dibble takes over the program from Ed Edsall who resigned after this past season. The Calabasas Patch has this from Dibble about becoming the next man in charge at Calabasas.

“I have lived and breathed baseball for 40 years, and I hope to take the many things I have learned from my dad to my high school coach to the many coaches at the major league level and give everything I can to the Calabasas baseball program,” Dibble said in a statement. “This next season will be all about the young men who will play here and the experiences we will share on and off the field. This had been a dream of mine for a long time, I just wish the season started today.”

There is another former baseball player that has coached there previously. Former Royals great Bret Saberhagen coached at Calabasas in 2006 and 2007 when his son was a member of the team. Saberhagen and Edsall were co-coaches during that time.

Last season, the Calabasas High’s baseball team finished with a record of 8-19, and 5-9 in the Marmonte League.

I suppose Dibs has some work to do.

Oh, and do read Calcaterra’s take.
