Baseball - Varsity
Coach Calagione is an alumnus of St. Mark’s School, Class of 2004. After graduating from Wake Forest University in 2008 and working at Groton School the following year, Coach Calagione returned to St. Mark’s. He has been coaching high school baseball since 2009. In addition to his role with the baseball program, Coach Calagione serves as a teacher in the History & Social Sciences Department and coaches cross-country.
The St. Mark’s baseball program prides itself on being fundamentally sound. The program utilizes a “games” approach to its practices. Each practice is designed to include an individual skills session as well as drills that closely replicate game situations. The team also utilizes video analysis in its practice sessions, filming bullpens and hitting drills, to aid in player development. The St. Mark’s baseball program has sent many players on to compete at the collegiate level. Recent graduates have attended schools at both the Division I and Division III levels.
The team is fortunate to have two assistant coaches, Phil Burton and Henry Large, who together have many decades of coaching experience.
Luke Chiasson rejoined the SM community in 2019 as the assistant varsity baseball coach after graduating from SM in 2015. He then joined the Residential Team as a dorm parent in Coe in January of 2020, while serving as the Interim Assistant Athletic Director. He has been serving as a L.E.O.S. during the 2020-21 academic year. Before returning to Southboro, Luke completed his B.A in Communication from Virginia Wesleyan University. He also spent time working in the athletic department at Wellesley College post graduation. He will be coaching Football in the Fall.
