Personal

Romeo has a passion for softball and a long background coaching the game.  His passion shows in that he volunteered to help coach at Cal-State Fullerton, an NCAA Division I school, so he could further develop his coaching skills at a high-level program.  There, he continued training outfielders, but took on additional responsibilities with infielders and hitters, while also focusing on recruiting.

In 2017, he took over an 18-and-under team that competed on a national level. In that role, he taught and developed players that eventually would commit to various colleges and universities around the U.S.

Monti Van Brunt, Retired Czech National Softball Coach, says, “Romeo is a good fit to get a gig somewhere. [He is] a true student of the game and a professional coach. He loves to teach and develop players.”
