A private school in Palm Beach Gardens has hired as its athletic director a former Marlins pitching coach who was with the team when it won the 2003 World Series.

St. Mark’s Episcopal Church and School announced Wayne “Rosey” Rosenthal‘s hire Thursday afternoon. Rosenthal was the pitching coach for the Marlins when they defeated the Yankees in the 2003 World Series and has a baseball career that spans 21 years.

As athletic director, he will be responsible for the school’s sports programs and physical education curriculum. The Brooklyn native now lives in Palm Beach Gardens with wife Tammy and three children.

“I am grateful for the opportunity to grow young boys and girls into the best versions of themselves at St. Mark’s,” Rosenthal said in a news release. “It’s such a blessing to teach and share my experiences as a coach and a Christian with the students.”

St. Mark’s Chief Financial Officer Ron McElhone said the school wanted to attract a coach of Rosenthal’s caliber to “drive skill development and a commitment to excellence” among student athletes.

“His integrity and years of professional experience will help nurture our young athletes by providing character development, instruction, encouragement and teamwork,” McElhone said in the release.
