For the past 21 years, Mike Zunica has been one of the winningest high school baseball coaches in Chicago and in the United States.  In May of this year he received the special honor being inducted into the Sports Hall of Fame.  In July he was appointed President of St. Rita High School while retaining his role as Athletic Director.  Mike remembers going to Mass with his grandfather at a very early age, about the same time he became acquainted with baseball.  The Catholic faith and Augustinian values have been foundational elements in his approach to life, his marriage, his children and family, and the many student-athletes he entrusted to his care.  Join us to hear Mike as he shares his views on faith, balance, endurance, and living life by doing things the right way.
