Pete Youth Baseball Instructor coach

Peter Gilardo (Baseball Instructor/Coach)

Peter Gilardo

Pete Gilardo was born in Orangeburg, NY where he made a great name for himself. He excelled all four years at Dominican College (’04-’07) and finished with a .328 career batting average while also being named All-Conference three out of his four years. Pete was named to the All-Tournament team after his sophomore season with an astounding .800 BA for the tournament and was also a 3-year Captain. He was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 2007 MLB Draft and spent most of his time as a catcher but was able to register a few innings on the mound as well. He caught some big-name pitchers such as Jon Lester, Josh Becket, and John Smoltz. His experiences in baseball are invaluable to the programs development and the athletes he works with. Pete hopes to affect each of his players in the best way possible.
