Sal Agostinelli will be our Head Scout–in this role, he will be providing player evaluations and hitting videos throughout the 2017 season.
He brings a wealth of experience that is matched by very few people at–not just at the amateur level but–any level. Agostinelli (Hills East grad) is currently the International Scouting Director for the Philadelphia Phillies.
Sal was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals in the 22nd round of the 1983 draft out of Slippery Rock University. He was named All-American and at the time of getting drafted, held the program mark for highest single-season batting average at .466 in 1981. That mark is currently third in program history. He played in the minor leagues for 10 years, topping out at Triple-A.
He has drafted 31 Major Leaguers including Carlos Ruiz, Carlos Carrasco, Freddy Galvis, Carlos Silva and Cesar Hernandez, among many others.
He runs a series of camps, tournaments and elite trips every year to gain exposure for players in the northeast.
