Seton Hill baseball coach Marc Marizzaldi was named the 2013 Rotary Club of Pittsburgh Collegiate Manager of the Year.

He will be honored at the annual Chuck Tanner Awards banquet Nov. 16 at the Rivers Club in Pittsburgh. Tickets for the event are available at or calling 412-471-6210.

Marizzaldi has amassed a 336-194 record during his tenure and has elevated the program to national prominence.

“It is a huge honor, not just to receive the award, but for what the award stands for and what (former Pittsburgh Pirates Manager) Chuck Tanner stands for,” said Marizzaldi, who grew up in Baldwin and is a Pirates fan. “The meaning behind the award is very special to me.

“This award is just a reflection of the success of our players. The reputation of our program now is one of a regional and national competitor. It took a lot of hard work to get it to that point, so this award is really recognizing not only our accomplishments of 2013 but of all our past and present players.”

Marizzaldi has posted a .634 winning percentage since the program's first season in 2004. Seton Hill baseball has captured six regular season division titles, two conference championships and one World Series berth in its seven years of postseason eligibility in both the NAIA and the NCAA. With just five official seasons at the NCAA level, the Griffins have enjoyed four straight trips to the NCAA tournament.

In 2013, Marizzaldi earned his third consecutive West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Coach of the Year honor as well as Regional Coach of the Year from the NCBWA.
