Coach started the Coastal Prospects Developmental and Showcase programs.  Since 2007, Coach Corsi and his staff continue to field high caliber showcase that compete on the national level.  Coastal Prospects is leading Northeast Florida in the placement of student-athletes in the collegiate and/or professional level (See Wall of Fame). Almost every year since 2007, Coach Corsi has produced double digit signees from his showcase teams.  Most recently, his nationally ranked 2015 team had an astounding 15 players sign national letters of intent to continue their respective careers.   His 2009 team had a record setting 18 players sign scholarships.

Coach Corsi has a strong ethic and very high demands for his players regardless of ability level.  His passion and intense approach to the game has helped him lead players and teams to prominent levels.  Coach Corsi loves the challenge of winning nationally with local players.  He has had a tremendous track record with this endeavor.  Coach Corsi is the only coach from Jacksonville, Florida, to lead a 17u team to the playoffs in the Perfect Game WWBA National Championships.  A feat accomplished in ‘09, ‘14, ‘15.  He is also the only coach from Jacksonville to ever lead a team to the prestigious Perfect Game WWBA World Championships, a feat accomplished 4 years in a row.  His tireless networking has contributed to the placement of over 100 student-athletes in the college and/or professional game.

Coach Corsi has also coached 6 nationally ranked teams voted by Perfect Game USA.  In the past 2 years, Coastal Prospects’ 17u division has gone a remarkable 20 – 2 in PG pool play including 5 pool championships in the past 5 PG events!  One of his proudest accomplishments was the 2015 team’s 24th place finish out of 308 teams in the National Championships.  To win nationally with local players is an absolute adrenaline rush for the veteran coach.  Besides leading the showcase players, Coach Corsi and his staff work spend each fall on player development using a strength and conditioning program designed for baseball/softball players of all ages in anticipation of the Spring season.  Spring of 2015 was very memorable as his 11u and 13u Coastal Prospect teams combined for 13 Championship game appearances.

Prior to creating the Coastal Prospects, Coach Corsi worked as a head coach, instructor, and Director of Baseball Operations at the World of Baseball in Jacksonville, Florida.  As head coach, he helped lead the organization to 7 Perfect Game Pool Championships.  He led a team to a 9th place and 15th place finish in the World Championships, a 16u Top 10 out of 142 teams in the National Championships, and (2) Final 4 appearances in the World Qualifier.

Prior to WOB, he was a head varsity baseball coach/science teacher at Campbell High School & Alpharetta High School.  Both programs were state ranked in the top 10 and top 5 respectively.  While teaching/coaching he received multiple accolades; Martin Luther King Humanitarian of the Year for his accomplishments both on the field and in the classroom.  Teacher of the Year in 2001, Georgia State Coach of the Month in April ‘06, and Who’s Who Among America’s High School Teachers multiple years.  As a high school coach, he also had the privilege of coaching 6 young men that were drafted in rounds 5 – 21 by Major League Baseball.

Coach Corsi played high school baseball in Ohio.  In 1993, he was chosen as the Ohio State Player of the Year.  In both 1991 and 1993 he was chosen as the Eastern Ohio Player of the Year.  He earned a Division I scholarship to attend Georgia State University where he was a conference starter as a true Freshman.  After his 2nd arm injury, he knew it was time to pass on his knowledge and passion to the next generation of aspiring players.  He was fortunate to become a head baseball coach at 23 years old and will continue to do so until the ‘game is over’.

Coach is married to his high school sweetheart, Melany Corsi.   Melany was a 4 year 1st team All – Conference player at Georgia State University leading her team to a top 20 NCAA National Ranking and appearance in the NCAA Regionals.  She was ranked top 10 nationally in both Homeruns and Triples.  She was the head varsity fastpitch coach at Roswell High School and led the team to the school’s first ever State Final 4.  She was also voted Region Coach of the Year back to back years.  Beginning fall of 2015, she will take over as the head varsity softball coach at Camden County High School.

The Corsi’s have 4 children;  A.J. Corsi (11), Cameron Corsi (8), and twins Nico & Isabella Corsi (6)
