PHILOSOPHY

 

Our priorities in the baseball program are very simple:  family, school work, and baseball (in that order).  The baseball staff believes that if our players make decisions  that reflect this philosophy then they will experience success in athletics…and in life.

 

On the field, we want our players to play hard at all times.  At the same time, we want our players to have fun.  One of our goals is to win as many games as possible, but we are not a “Win at all Costs” type of program.  The most talented players, who work well within the team concept and behave in a manner that represents Broad Run in a positive manner, earn the most playing time on game night. 

 

As coaches, it is our job to assist each player in our program in his development as a student, athlete, and person.  We teach the values of hard work, teamwork, and unselfishness.  It is our aim that the discipline our players learn as members of our baseball program will serve as a tool that will guide them well beyond their playing days.

 

 

FALL/WINTER WEIGHT ROOM
 
Weight room workouts will be every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 7:50 AM until 8:40 AM starting in mid-September. 
 
Proper weight training is essential for the continued success of our teams and individual players.  Beyond the fact that lifting weights properly will help athletes become bigger, stronger, and faster as baseball players, it even more important because it improves one’s overall athleticism.  In turn, this helps athletes to avoid injury during the season.

 

Our baseball workout develops the upper body and the lower body.  It also includes specific lifts intended to strengthen muscle groups specifically used in baseball (rotator cuff, core muscles, etc).  Copies of the baseball workout are available in the weight room.

 
WINTER HITTING CAMP
 
Winter hitting camp takes place on Saturdays in January and February leading up to the beginning of tryouts. 
 
There will be a short meeting in mid-October in Room 205 (Coach Cassidy's classroom) to discuss the camp.  The camp will be open to anyone who is interested in coming out for baseball this spring...
 

***Participation, or lack thereof, in winter hitting camp in no way affects your chances of making the team at Broad Run this spring.

           At Broad Run, Cassidy played baseball for AA State Coach of the Year, Wayne Todd, who led the team to the 1991 AA State Championship.  Coach Todd now serves as the head coach at Loudoun Valley High School; he has over 350 wins in his coaching career.

Mike Petrella - JV Coach

           

               Mike Petrella returns for his seventh season as a member of the baseball staff this year as our Head JV Coach.  Coach Petrella has led our JV teams to years of success.

         The 2012 team, comprised primarily of freshmen, finished with a 12-6 mark. The 2011 team, mainly freshmen, finished 6-8-1.  The 2010 team finished with an outstanding record of 13-2-2 on the season. The 2009 JV baseball team he coached (made up primarily of freshmen) finished the season with a 11-2 mark. In 2008, his first as coach of the JV Baseball team, he led the team to an 11-3 record on the season with a pitching staff made up primarily of freshmen.  In 2007, his first year on our staff as a JV assistant coach, the JV team finished with a 10-7 mark.
 
            Petrella coached baseball at Freedom High School in 2006 and spent five years as a member of the girls basketball coaching staff here at Broad Run.  Following the 2008 season, he was promoted to the position of Girls' Varsity Basketball Assistant Coach.

 

                Coach Petrella currently teaches Physical Education at Eagle Ridge Middle School.  He graduated in 2005 from Radford University with a degree in Heath and Physical Education.  Coach Petrella was a 2001 graduate of Loudoun County High School.  He played outfield on the baseball team where he earned two Varsity letters for the Raiders, and he was a teammate of current Broad Run Assistant Coach, Tim Anderson.

 

                Coach Petrella's everyday duties include working with the catchers and the JV team.  In 2012, he coached All-District Catcher, Joe Delahaba, who hit .351 on the year.  Prior to that, Petrella coached the outfielders.  In 2011, he coached All-Region oufielder Nick Richardson and All-District outfielder Andrew Seigel.  In 2009 and 2008 he coached Zach Rawson, a two-time All-District selection who is currently an outfielder at St. Peter's College in New Jersey. In 2008, he coached outfielder Andrew Mann, a 1st Team All-Region selection who led the team, district, and region with 28 stolen bases on the season.  In 2007, Petrella coached outfielder Steven Hershey, who was a 1st team All-Dulles District selection as an outfielder. 
 
                Coach Petrella's father, Ron, currently serves as Athletic Director at Heritage High School in Leesburg, Virginia.  Before that, he was a teacher, coach, and administrator at Broad Run (where he coached Coach Cassidy on the basketball court).

 

Coach Cassidy's thoughts on Coach Petrella:  "Mike is an essential part of our coaching staff.  He does a great job with our catchers, and he did a tremendous job developing our outfielders for years.  He brings an outstanding work ethic to our program.  He takes his responsibilty to our players, both in and out of the season, very seriously."
 
          "This past year, he led our young JV squad to a successful season, and once again has proved himself very capable as a leader of young players.  I am looking forward to having him work with our players and coaches again this spring." 
 
 
 Mike Puckli - Assistant Varsity Coach
 
      Mike Puckli joins the Broad Run Baseball staff for his third season this spring.  He will serve as the Varsity Assistant Coach on game night and will work with both the JV and Varsity pitchers during practice.  

In 2012, he oversaw a pitching staff that saw Senior Kyle McCormack earn six wins and commit to pitch at Frostburg State University, and worked with AJ Powell who threw a no-hitter late in the season (the fourth no-hitter he has thrown in the last two seasons).

         Two years ago, in Puckli's first year working with the pitching staff, he worked with Towson University bound Taylor Clarke as he posted a 10-1 record and then-Sophomore AJ Powell who threw three no-hitters on the season.  
 
       Coach Puckli is a 2007 graduate of Marist College where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications.  Coach Puckli came to Broad Run last year after spending two years coaching pitchers at Briar Woods HS.
 
      As a pitcher at Marist he led the team in Appearances (21) during the 2007 season.  From 2003-05, Coach Puckli was a pitcher at George Mason University.  During the 2004 season, he appeared on the mound in the NCAA Regional verses Vanderbilt and he set the school record for fewest walks issued in a season (2).
     
      Coach Puckli is a 2002 graduate of Loudoun County High School where he was a two-year letter winner and teammate of Coach Petrella.  While at County, Puckli earned All-District, Washington Post All-Extra, and Honorable Mention Washington Post Honors as a Pitcher/Utility player during the 2002 season. 
 
Coach Cassidy's thoughts on Coach Puckli:  "We are very fortunate to have someone with Mike's playing and coaching background on our coaching staff.  As a former Division I pitcher he serves as a great resource for our players who desire to excel at baseball beyond the high school level."
 
       "Mike's knowledge of pitching is a tremendous asset to our coaching staff and for all the pitchers in our program. He is able to help our younger pitchers at the JV level and our more experienced Varsity pitchers as well."
 
 
 
 Mark Lucas - JV Assistant Coach
-
Last year was the first on staff for JV Assistant Coach, Mark Lucas.  Lucas serves as the JV Assistant Coach and works everyday with both the Varsity and Junior Varsity Outfielders.
 
In 2012, Coach Lucas worked with Senior Captain Andrew Seigel.  Seigel played center field and led off for the Spartans.  He led the team in Runs Scored, Stolen Bases, and Base on Balls.  Seigel signed a baseball scholarship with Concord University, a Division II school in Athens, West Virginia.
 
Coach Lucas teaches in the Social Studies Department at Broad Run.  He is a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh.  He played on the Club Baseball team at Pitt and played his high school baseball in Mars, PA.
 
Coach Cassidy's thoughts on Coach Lucas:  "Mark has been a great addition to our coaching staff.  He does a great job with our outfielders, has worked hard picking up and teaching our team concepts, and has added a fresh/new perspective to our coaching staff.  I am very happy he is a part of our staff."
 
 
 
 Cole Shain - Volunteer Asst. Coach
 
Cole Shain (BRHS - '08) returns to Broad Run this spring for his first season as our Volunteer Assistant Coach.  Coach Shain will coach in the first base box with the Varsity team on game night. 
 
Shain comes back to BR following his successful career as a four year starting pitcher at the College of William and Mary.  While with the Tribe, Shain's highlights include the highest rated victory in school history with his junior year win at UNC.  He also pitched against #1 in the nation UVA and #1 in the nation University of Florida.  As a member of the Tribe pitching staff, Shain contributed to a CAA best Earned Run Average in 2011.
 
At Broad Run, Shain has a standout career for the Spartans.  On the baseball field he was a 3-year starter on the mound and at first base.  He earned All-Region and All-District honors for the Spartans as a pitcher.  His complete game victory over Louisa High School in the Region playoffs in 2008 propelled Broad Run to the State for the first time in over a decade.  On the football field, Shain quarterbacked the Spartans to a district championship his senior year.
 
Coach Cassidy's thoughts on Coach Shain:  "Cole was a tremendous student-athlete in our program.  Besides being an outstanding performer on the field leading our team to multiple championships, he always was a class act in the way he reresented our program and school on and off the field.  I am extremely happy that he decided to come back and coach in the program he helped build as a player."
