John Dean, Manager

Smash Baseball is managed by John Dean - a local coach with over 30 years experience coaching travel and competitive baseball and softball teams in Oakland, Moraga, Orinda, Concord and Pleasant Hill.   Coach Dean has coached boys ages 5-18 and girls ages 7-16 as well as instructed at baseball camps at St. Mary's College in Moraga and U.C. Berkeley, including a "hitters only" camp.  Most recently, he led a successful 12U Smash team to Cooperstown and has served as manager in the Lady Hawks program, a very competitive girls fast pitch program, for the last four years. 

As a player, John pitched and played infield up to and through Berkeley High School gaining an athletic admission to U.C. Davis.  He graduated in 1991 and has pursued his passion for teaching baseball and softball ever since.   Coach John's teams have won many league titles, championships and tournaments. However, he prefers to measure his success as a teacher, coach and manager, not in the number of trophies that his team's collect, but rather in the number of players who improve their skills, learn about the game and develop a passion to play.

The NorCal Smash has an outstanding team of coaches and a top notch organizational staff to help navigate the world of boys tournament baseball and develop fund raising opportunities for a successful season.
