Eastern's new head baseball coach, Matt LaBranche, hired this past summer as the sixth head baseball coach in program history -- has announced his coaching staff for the 2013-14 season. Scott Smith and Steve Cervizzi will return to the Eastern staff after both had previous assistant coaching tenures at Eastern and Trinity College, and will be joined by Tim Mayo and Marc Senia. Mayo served as pitching coach the last four years under LaBranche at Western New England University, and will serve in a similar capacity at Eastern. Senia has coached at the AAU and American Legion levels and is a former four-year member of the Wheaton College (MA) baseball program.
A former catcher in the Eastern program, Smith will work with catchers and hitters. Cervizzi will work with outfielders and hitters, and Senia will work with infielders and be responsible for coaching base running. On game days, Smith and Cervizzi will serve as bench coaches and Senia will coach first base.
"I am very excited about how quickly the remainder of the staff has come together," said LaBranche. "It is a tremendously experienced and knowledgeable staff. These are outstanding baseball men that bring a great passion and enthusiasm for teaching the game of baseball."
