Baseball: Pearson resigns at L.A. Roosevelt

October 20, 2009 |  9:06 pm

Scott Pearson, who built the Los Angeles Roosevelt baseball program into one of the best in the City Section, has resigned after 10 years as coach. He will become the coach at Los Angeles Cathedral, where his twin brother, Kevin, is the football coach.

Pearson helped Roosevelt win seven Eastern League titles in 10 years. His teams made the City semifinals three times and reached the championship game at Dodger Stadium once. Pearson said lack of administrative support caused him to leave.

He'll be missed. His record was 273-59-3. His teams were competitive against the top teams from the San Fernando Valley. No replacement has been named at Roosevelt.
