DeLAND, Fla. – Stetson baseball head coach Pete Dunn announced today the promotion of Mark Leavitt to associate head coach. The move is effective immediately.

“This promotion is an affirmation of Mark’s leadership and duties within our program,” said Dunn. “It’s an appropriate reward that recognizes what he does for Stetson Baseball.”

Leavitt, who begins his fifth year on the Stetson staff next month, has previously served as assistant head coach. He is Stetson’s recruiting coordinator, hitting and infield coach, and third base coach on game days.

“Being a part of the Stetson baseball family and the DeLand community the last four years has been a great experience for me and my family,” said Leavitt. “Working with Coach Dunn has truly been one of the highlights of my career.”

In his time at Stetson, Leavitt’s recruiting efforts have produced four All-Americans, including current sophomores Patrick Mazeika and Kevin Fagan, who both earned Freshman All-American honors in 2013. He has also tutored 11 All-Atlantic Sun Conference hitters.

The Hatters’ 2012 recruiting class was ranked 29th in the nation by Collegiate Baseball newspaper.

“Mark’s stamp on the program is on the field every year,” said Dunn. “As successful coach and an outstanding baseball guy, Mark has had other opportunities beyond our program and he’s chosen to stay. He wants to be here.”

Leavitt came to Stetson in December of 2009 after serving as head baseball coach at the Salisbury School in Salisbury, Conn., where he coached 2008 first round draft pick Anthony Hewitt (Philadelphia). A 1988 Princeton University graduate, Leavitt also spent 11 years as a professional scout for both the Montreal Expos and Seattle Mariners (1997-2006). He also coached at George Mason, James Madison, Princeton and George Washington universities.

Leavitt and his wife, Christina, reside in DeLand with their two sons, Scott and Ryan.
