Pete coached several house, All-Star & traveling youth baseball teams, such as his 8 yr. old Indians 1990 (19-1) team, Cardinals 1991 Champions and 11-12 old Dunham Park Midget Division Championship team. In addition he managed the traveling Crusaders 12 year old team in 1995 and also Co-managed the Diamonds 13 yr. old traveling baseball team in 1996 which won several tournaments, including the annual Thillens Championship tournament. In addition Podgorski taught Physical Education classes part-time for the Archdiocese of Chicago. Most of the years were spent at Saint. John Bosco and Saint Josaphat's elementary schools on Chicago's North side. Before working at Saint John Bosco Podgorski got his start at Saint ITA on Chicago's N.W.Side Lakefront. Pete filled in for his Park Supervisor Mr. Ed Zegan who was the P.E. person at Saint. ITA and needed to take off the 2nd half of the semester due to his an illness of his wife. Pete worked the rest of that school year at Saint ITA before taking the job at Saint John Bosco the following school year.
