New Jersey Baseball Feature Story

Quiet Confidence

Every so often we meet a young pitcher who embodies the best qualities of a seasoned competitor – an earnest, unrelenting presence on the mound coupled with a modest, unassuming personality. Few fit that description better than Casey Clark, a junior southpaw for Notre Dame High School in Lawrenceville, New Jersey.


Pitching with Confidence

A graduate of Dave Gallagher’s Baseball Academy, Casey approaches his junior season with impressive credentials. In addition to playing in his District Little League tournament at age 10, he pitched for his 16 year-old, Pony League All-Star team, recording the team’s only win in the Eastern Region tournament, won a semi-final game in the Mercer County Tournament, pitched above his level on the Lawrence Senior Legion team, and became a reliable starter for his varsity baseball team when only a sophomore. He enters the Spring ’09 campaign as Notre Dame’s ace of the staff.


Dave Gallagher
Professional Experience, Professional Training

Not the type of player to sound his own horn, Casey nonetheless announces his competitive presence in no uncertain terms. With a fastball that gains added velocity each season, an accomplished changeup – unusually effective for a pitcher his age – and a reliable splitter that he uses as his “out” pitch, this quiet, deferential young man becomes an intense competitor on the mound. In addition, his growing awareness of situational pitching, a skill that he learned from his experience at Dave Gallagher’s Academy, will only make him more dominating on the mound. This early training paid off as Casey helped his Dave Gallagher Development team to a second place finish in the Baseball Heaven tournament in Long Island, New York.

The proof will most certainly come in the 2009 season, when he faces the always potent lineups of Nottingham and Steinert High Schools. Casey knows the challenge he faces whenever he takes the hill; however, it will no doubt be in those games that his quiet confidence will receive its sternest test.

For its part, NJB Magazine has confidence that Casey Clark will meet these challenges with the same intensity and focus that he has displayed since Little League.
