Scarborough athletic director Mike LeGage announced earlier this week that Mike D’Andrea is the school’s new baseball coach, replacing Ryan Jones, who stepped down following the 2015 season. D’Andrea is a Maine baseball legend, starring at Portland High School before pitching at the University of Maine and later with the Atlanta Braves farm system. D’Andrea led Deering’s baseball program to six Class A state titles and the Nova Seafood American Legion team to six state titles and the 2004 national championship.
“We had a very good pool of qualified applicants and the interview committee agreed that Coach D’Andrea was certainly the best candidate for the job,” said LeGage. “He joins an outstanding family of coaches here. His expertise will provide our student-athletes with the best opportunity to learn important life skills essential for success on and off the field.”
