East Palestine Baseball is under their second year of leadership from stickball guru, Carmen Nocera. The Bulldog Skipper has provided his experience to a rather inexperienced team. Nocera has stints with professional programs, as well at the collegiate level with the Westminster College Titans where he helmed the 2-time President’s Athletic Conference Champions.
Nocera also brings a new attitude to the program. One of confidence, and swagger which can make or break any team down the stretch.
As the year progresses, the Bulldogs will continue to gel- but can they overcome the tough early schedule that 2019 provides? Sit down with YSN’s Tim Figley and Coach Nocera as they discuss this year’s program, the community involvement as well as what to expect during this year’s campaign.
All that and more in our first edition of East Palestine Baseball Coach’s Corner with Carmen Nocera.
