We are wrapping up our round of interviews with the new faces that have joined the Titan Baseball coaching staff and front office. Today's conversation is with Danny Benedetti who will serve as the Volunteer Assistant on the Titans staff in 2022.
Benedetti returns to Orange County where he grew up in Los Alamitos and also played under Jason Dietrich while at Irvine Valley College. He then went on to play at St. John's University where he earned back-to-back All Big East honors and played in the 2008 Houston Regional after helping St. John's win the Big East Tournament.
Danny's coaching stops include summer wood bat league stops in the Northwoods and the Hampton Collegiate Summer Leagues, was a graduate assistant at Long Beach State before returning to coach at St, John's and at Manhattan College and most recently at San Diego State. Now at Fullerton, Benedetti brings over nine years of coaching experience and will assist Neil Walton with the offense along with working closely with the catchers and will coach first base during games.
