Worcester, MA- The Worcester Bravehearts are thrilled to announce that the team’s former pitching coach Casey Cummins has been named the head coach of the Saint John’s High School (Shrewsbury) Baseball team. Coach Cummins was the Bravehearts pitching coach from 2014-2018 where he went to five consecutive Futures League Championship Series, and helped bring three Championships to Worcester.
This hire from Saint John’s High School is the latest of a long string of connections between the Bravehearts and Pioneers. Bravehearts Owners John Creedon Sr and John Creedon Jr were both graduates of Saint John’s. In total, 20 former Saint John’s Pioneers have played for the Worcester Bravehearts since 2014.
Cummins helped lead a staff that finished first in the league in strikeouts for three consecutive seasons from 2016-18, included a league-best staff ERA of 3.44 in 2018.
“Casey is not only a former colleague, I also consider him one of my great friends,” said Bravehearts General Manager Dave Peterson. “He helped to mold some incredible young players for the Worcester Bravehearts, and I know he will do the same for Saint John’s. We are looking forward to Casey’s future success and hope to continue the strong on-field partnership between the Bravehearts and Pioneers.”
