Irvine Valley assistant baseball coach Tony Cappuccilli recently returned home from a successful second season coaching the Anchorage Bucs in the Alaska Summer League.
"It was a great season," Cappuccilli said. "We finished in second place, we had the league MVP and also the league's top prospect."
Cappuccilli led the Bucs to a second-place finish with a record of 25-22 overall and 21-19 in league.
The Anchorage Glacier Pilots won the league with a record of 26-14.
"I owe a huge thank you to the Anchorage Bucs and Shawn Maltby for the opportunity to be the head coach of the best organization in college summer ball," Cappuccilli said. "I am so grateful for the opportunity and I am looking forward to next year already when we can improve on this year.
"I owe the biggest thank you ever to Dan Ellis and Cameron McMullen for being the best assistant coaches I could ever ask for. The work you put in all summer and putting up with me never went unnoticed and I appreciate it more than I ever told you."
McMullen spent this past season (his first) as an assistant at Irvine Valley. The former Golden West College player recently earned the baseball operations job at the University of Nevada and will be headed to Reno in the fall.
