TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Former big league pitcher Anthony Chavez is on the move again.

The Sunnyside School District has named the former Anaheim Angels pitcher as the new Desert View High School Head Baseball Coach.

Chavez comes to Desert View from Rincon where he spent one season as head coach (12-15). Prior to that he was head coach at Mountain View for four seasons. The Lions went 47-62 under Chavez during his tenure between 2008-2011

The San Jose native made his Major League debut on September 2, 1997 for the Angels in a game against the Colorado Rockies in the 9th inning where he struck out Dante Bichette and Quentin McCracken in a 7-2 loss.

Chavez made seven appearance during his only stint in the big leagues striking out ten batters in nine and a third innings (0.93).

Chavez played collegiately at San Jose State University and holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the United States Sports Academy. He was selected by the Angels in the 50th round of the 1992 MLB June Amateur Draft.

His 14-year professional pitching career, primarily as a closer, included 2 years for the Arizona Diamondbacks of which he spent both seasons (01-02) here in Tucson as a member of the Sidewinders; one season for the Oakland Athletics with the Triple-A Vancouver Canadians; and several other baseball clubs.
