Joey Migliaccio has been hired as a volunteer baseball assistant coach, completing head coach Tony Rossi's 2015 coaching staff. Migliaccio has spent the summer as an assistant coach for the Liberal Bee Jays of the Jayhawk Collegiate League where he was in charge of working with hitters and infielders on a daily basis.
"Joey is a great fit for our program," Rossi said. "He is very passionate about the game and will bring energy to the program. He comes highly recommended from a strong Oral Roberts University program where he competed for two years. He will complement our staff and we are excited to have him aboard."
Migliaccio comes to Siena after a successful collegiate career that started at Florida International University. After transferring from FIU to Parkland College (Ill.), he hit .324 in two seasons reaching safely on 106 hits, blasted six homeruns and collected 28 doubles in two seasons.
Migliaccio then transferred to Oral Roberts University where he graduated cum laude with a degree in recreation administration and a minor in humanities in 2014. Migliaccio saw time at shortstop, second base and third base at ORU and batted .455 in the 2013 Southland Conference Tournament.
Migliaccio will work primarily with the defense and help out with the offense at Siena.
