Baseball: Lubanski takes over at SCHA

Springside Chestnut Hill Academy has turned to Chris Lubanski, a former standout at Kennedy-Kenrick, to be its new head baseball coach.

In 2003, Lubanski, a hard-hitting and speedy outfielder, was named Gatorade's national high school player of the year and selected by the Kansas City Royals with the fifth pick in the first round of the amateur draft.

His eight-year, minor-league career included a 2010 stint with the Las Vegas 51s, then the Toronto Blue Jays' triple-A affiliate in the Pacific Coast League. In 2011, he spent about three weeks with the double-A Reading Phillies.

At Springside Chestnut Hill, Lubanski, 27, replaces Stan Parker, who stepped down after 23 seasons.
