Chris Nee enters his fourth year on Coach Natoli’s staff. Along with his duties as the head Cardinal Pitching Coach, Nee also plays an integral role in player development and in the Cardinal’s year-round recruiting efforts.
2017 was a tremendous year for Cardinal pitchers. Nee oversaw a staff that led the Landmark Conference in strikeouts, with 314, 60 more than closest Cardinal rival. Led by All-Region selection Jon Mierzwa and multiple All-Conference selections Joe Salzano and Mason Belcher, the Cardinals have established a deep pitching tradition with a promising future under Nee’s leadership.
Originally from Somerville, NJ and baseball power Immaculata High School, Nee, a two-time All-Conference selection in his playing days at Catholic, ranks high in every statistical category for relievers, including single year and career records for appearances. In 2013, Nee’s 9 saves led the Landmark Conference en route to Catholic claiming the regular season title.
Nee has also been in a pitching coach in the Cal Ripken Collegiate League for the DC Grays and obtained his Masters Degree in Business from Catholic in 2015. He currently resides in Washington, DC.
