I would love to be a pitching coach. I played minor league ball as a pitcher for 2 years, in the Pirates and Royals organizations. I follow baseball every day, was a pitching coach for 10 years at the varsity high school level. I have had 5 pitchers get college scholarships. I teach the mechanics, different pitches and the mental part of the game. I am easygoing, fun and I want my players to have fun so they enjoy the game while they are learning. Once the game starts, it’s all business.

Bobby is not only a good friend, but an excellent coach and mentor for those looking to get to the next level in ball. We all know that catchers and pitchers make the best coaches, at any level, since their playing experience and much greater involvement in the game result in a better understanding of the strategies and decisions it takes to win. Bobby has an excellent approach towards working with ball players in bringing out their best when confronted with pressure situations. A great candidate for a coach.
What can I say other than Bob is an absolutely wonderful person and coach who makes everyone feel at ease regardless of their level of play whether it be Frosh, JV or Varsity.
Coach Aurigemma displayed many talents in encouraging and boosting confidence that contributed to the team's operations and wins on the field. He excels at motivating a team/players very well while continuously showing them how to improve their play while with our school. In comparison to other coaches, Coach Aurigemma always exudes great talent for team building, running drills and motivating the team.
My greatest memories about Coach Aurigemma were when he led the team to win the CCS Championship. He utilized his great team-building skills to encourage the team to work collaboratively while on the field and during breaks in the game. He provided the pitchers with strategies, tips and pitches that allowed them to take home the trophy.
Coach Aurigemma excelled at teaching players the pitches, rules and strategies of the game. His mentorship and constructive feedback keep the team organized while contributing to team positivity. I believe Coach Aurigemma will be a great fit for any position overseas whether it be a Pitching Coach or Manager and will surprise you with how quickly they acclimate and drive success for your team.
