Casey Cloud Named Bishop Diego Baseball Coach

The new head varsity baseball coach played locally for Santa Barbara High, UCLA and the Foresters

Casey Cloud has been hired to serve in the capacity of head varsity baseball coach at Bishop Garcia Diego High School.

Principal Fr. Tom Elewaut announced the appointment to fill the position vacated by Brian Moulton. Moulton served as head baseball coach for three years, and led the Cardinals to the playoffs for two years, winning a league championship in 2008.

Cloud brings a wealth of experience to the Bishop Diego baseball program. He excelled in athletics at Santa Barbara High School and continued his athletic prowess at UCLA, where he started 49 games as catcher for the 1997 Bruin squad that advanced to the College World Series.

During his college years, Cloud also was a summer standout for the Santa Barbara Foresters (1995-97). He continued his baseball career professionally, playing three years for the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, which drafted him in 1998.

When his playing days were over, Cloud joined the Santa Barbara Foresters coaching staff. For the past four seasons, Cloud has served as the catching coach, the third-base coach and is in charge of running the offense.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
