Background – Georgetown University

Steve had a standout collegiate career at the Division I level, playing for 4 years at Georgetown University, a member of the BIG EAST Conference.

While at Georgetown, Steve started at 1B/DH all four years and was a fixture in the middle of the Hoyas lineup.

Steve steadily improved his on-field performance over his collegiate career culminating in a .344/.397/.508 slash line in his final year – his slugging % being the best in the entire BIG EAST conference. Steve was honored with the Team MVP award following his senior season at Georgetown.

Aside from his on-field performance, Steve was a consummate teammate and representative of Georgetown University Baseball throughout his four years with the program. Steve was elected team captain by his teammates going into his final year and was awarded Teammate of the Year following the completion of the season.

Steve also exemplified leadership and community service at Georgetown by spearheading a charity fundraising effort which raised ~$50,000 to battle childhood cancer. Steve led his Georgetown teammates in a head-shaving fundraiser, in partnership with the St. Baldrick’s foundation, following a game.

 

Background – Summer Collegiate Leagues (Albany & Newport)

Following each collegiate season at Georgetown, Steve was selected to play for prestigious summer wood-bat collegiate leagues across the United States.

After his freshman season, Steve signed with the Albany Dutchmen of the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League (PGCBL).

Steve had a standout summer with the Dutchmen where he was named a league All-Star, led the team in most offensive categories (HR, RBI, Slg%), and was named a Top 20 prospect for the MLB draft.

Following his sophomore and junior seasons with Georgetown, Steve signed with the Newport Gulls of the New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) – often cited as the #2 ranked league in the country, just behind the Cape Cod League.

Steve excelled in his 2 seasons with Newport, where both he and the team had tremendous on-field success.

While with Newport, Steve was named an NECBL all-star, competed in the league’s HR derby, led the entire NECBL in RBIs, and broke the Newport Gulls Franchise Record for RBI in a season (still the current record holder).

In his first season with Newport, Steve led the Gulls to a League Championship by hitting .307/.401/.490 with 6 HRs.

Following Steve’s first season with Newport, the Gulls were named the #1 Summer Collegiate Team in the nation by Perfect Game.

 

Coaching Experience

While at Georgetown and Newport, Steve was a youth baseball coach and instructor. Steve primarily worked with baseball players aged from 6 to 18.

Steve was an instructor at Georgetown’s Elite Prospect Baseball camp where he worked with the infielders on defense and served as the hitting instructor for all camp attendees (aged 14-18).

In Newport, Steve was a coach for the weekly camps provided by the team for local youth baseball players aged 6-12. Steve helped the younger players learn the fundamentals of the game while creating a fun learning environment.

Steve intends to be running his business full-time while playing but may be available to assistant coach youth teams as his schedule allows.

 

Post-University Baseball Hiatus and Return to Competitive Baseball

Following his career at Georgetown, Steve was offered opportunities to continue his baseball career by professional Independent league teams in the United States, but opted to start his business career as a management consultant instead.

While working as a management consultant in Washington, D.C., and New York City, Steve stayed connected to the game by playing in local leagues and coaching youth players in his spare time.

In 2018, Steve started his own consulting business (CoLo Consulting) and has been operating the company remotely while living in 10+ countries around the globe. Steve’s nomadic journey has taken him to Germany, Czech Republic, England, Hungary, the Netherlands, Georgia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Japan, Colombia, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Canada among other places.

In 2021, while living in Canada, Steve decided to return to competitive baseball with the Fredericton Astros, who compete in the Capital City Intermediate Baseball League in New Brunswick, Canada.

With the Astros in 2021, Steve has picked up where he left off at Georgetown by posting a 1.486 OPS and hitting .457 with 5 HRs with an astounding 20:3 BB:K ratio. Following the season, Steve also won the Rookie of The Year award for the league.

 

Why Overseas Baseball?

Steve is now seeking a new opportunity in 2021/2022 with an overseas club to continue pursuing his two passions – baseball and travel – while continuing to run his online-based consulting business.

Steve seeks to bring his leadership, high-level playing, and coaching experience to help an overseas baseball team win games and develop their local baseball players.

Steve looks forward to hearing from teams that are seeking an experienced and accomplished baseball player who is comfortable living in new places.

 

Overseas Goals

  • Use my knowledge and experience to help grow the game globally

  • Experience new cultures and meet new people

  • Continue my playing career and teach the game I love for as long as I can

Pete Wilk

Georgetown University, Head Coach

I've been a college baseball coach for 30+ years now....started at Boston University as an asst for 2 years, then Harvard for 4 years, then to Georgetown for 2 years as an asst before being promoted to head coach, where I spent 21 years as the hc....it was at gu that steven played for me. I've also coached in the cape cod league and the Alaska baseball league and now I'm the head coach of the Vermont lake monsters in the futures collegiate baseball league...

I share that background because it's relevant to my next comment: Steve Anderson is one of the finest young men I've ever had the pleasure to coach in my entire career. a GREAT teammate, a GREAT captain, and a GREAT hitter.....slightly above avg 1b defender. but one of the best people I've ever coached. the team first, always. Knows the game, is a great people person and is a magnetic teammate that draws people to him. he's also a great competitor.....also....he's obviously (Georgetown degree) an intelligent young man. his work ethic is unparalleled. he's the real deal, on and off the field.

as a baseball player, he's a middle of the order L bat with power who can really hit. he is probably best suited for 1b/DH but he won't hurt you at 1b at all and is more than just a hitter. he makes his infield partners better with above avg footwork and is very good at picking badly thrown balls.

in short...I'm the father of 2 girls...I'm hopeful one day that a young man like Steve Anderson comes and asks me for my daughter's hand in marriage...I love this young man and trust him with my family.

I hope this helps. If you need more info I'd be happy to discuss him with anyone at any time. this young man is a winner on and off the field. any team, anywhere, would be lucky to have him.

Chuck Paiva

Newport Gulls, General Manager

I am writing this recommendation on behalf of Steven Anderson who is interested in playing baseball overseas. I have had the opportunity to play with, coach and mentor many baseball players who have gone overseas to continue their baseball career and passion for the game they love. I can say with conviction that Steven Anderson is an outstanding candidate to continue his baseball career on and off the field.

On the field, Steven is a proven leader and winner. He is an excellent defensive 1B and good skills around the bag. He is an outstanding teammate and always a positive and physical presence on the field and in the dugout. He can hit for average and power and would be an asset in the middle of any line-up. Steve played his college baseball at Georgetown University where he was a leader and top hitter in the Big East Conference. He has a high IQ for the game of baseball and plays the game the right way. While playing for the Newport Gulls in the New England Collegiate Baseball League, he lead his team in 2012 to the NECBL Championship and his team was named #1 in the country by Perfect Game Baseball. Many of his teammates went on to play professional baseball and a couple of them made it to the Major Leagues.

Off the field, Steven is a highly intelligent, personable and responsible person far beyond his age. He was always been mature and a leader on his team. He is a person of strong character, integrity and will represent your club off the field as well. Steven lived with Doctor Stamoulis and his three children for two summers here, and to this day he has a special relationship with his host family.

I could not give a stronger recommendation for a player; he will be a great representative of baseball and your club, teammate, teacher and player regardless of where he plays. Any team that gets Steve Anderson will have a proven winner, leader with great character.
