Chatham names former Seton Hill player D.J. Cannon baseball coach

Paul Schofield

Chatham named Seton Hill pitching coach D.J. Cannon as its baseball coach. Cannon replaces Tim Banner, who resigned after the season.

“D.J. comes with a great record of success, both academically and athletically,” Chatham athletic director Leonard Trevino said in a release. “We’re excited to name D.J. as our next coach. We feel he is going to continue to move our program in the right direction.”

Cannon graduated from Seton Hill in 2011. From 2008-12, he posted 12 wins and ranks fourth with a career ERA at 3.79.

He earned All-West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference honors in 2008. Cannon helped develop former Seton Hill pitcher Perry DellaValle into a 27th-round pick of the St. Louis Cardinals in 2018. Cannon handled the bulk of the recruiting duties in Pennsylvania and oversaw all strength and conditioning for the program.

A three-sport high school letterman in football, basketball and baseball, Cannon is a member of the Mars High School Athletics Hall of Fame. He earned his bachelor’s degree in business/entrepreneurial studies in 2011 and earned his MBA in management at Seton Hill in the spring of 2014.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
