Pat Disabato, a lifelong resident of Blue Island, has been a sports writer for more than 20 years, beginning his career in 1990 with Star Newspapers, a predecessor of the SouthtownStar.
An All-Area pitcher at Eisenhower High School in Blue Island and a proud alum of the St. Jude Knights Hockey Club in Crestwood, he realizes the importance and benefits of youth sports.
Disabato played college baseball at Lewis University in Romeoville and professionally in the New York Mets organization. An elbow injury put an end to the left-handed pitcher’s baseball career.
Since 2003, he has hosted “The Coach’s Corner” on WJYS-TV (Channel 62). The weekly show focuses on high school sports in the Southland.
