LOD Podcast, Episode 51: Sunshine State Success with Mike Scudero

Coach Mike Scudero has a very relatable story for so many new Floridians.  Growing up in New York, Scudero began playing baseball at the age of 5 and would go on to play at both the college and professional level.  As a pitcher for Adelphi University and in the Frontier League, Scudero learned lessons in the game he now passes on to his players.

Unlike many other coaches, Scudero’s trajectory took a different turn as he pursued work outside the game for years prior to returning to baseball as a coach.  And while he began his coaching career in New York, Scudero migrated to Central Florida in 2020 to take over as Head Coach at Wekiva High School in Apopka.

In just his third season at Wekieva, Scudero was named Metro Conference Coach of the Year in 2023.  Coach Scudero takes his accomplishments with him to West Orange High School to prepare for the 2024 season.  At Legends on Deck, we look forward to seeing what he and his team can accomplish in Winter Garden.
