Sean grew up in Larchmont, N.Y. where he attended Mamaroneck High School. He was a four-year starter on both the hockey and baseball team, earning All-State honors in both sports. He was a part of the 2008 and 2009 New York State Baseball Championship teams, playing both first base and pitcher. From there, he went on to play NCAA Division 1 baseball at St. John’s University in Queens, N.Y. During his four years at St. John’s, the team won two Big East Championships and went to three NCAA tournaments.
In 2012, Sean started against #2 ranked North Carolina and helped the Red Storm win the Chapel Hill Regional and move on to the program’s first-ever NCAA Super Regional (Sweet 16). Read MoreDuring the summers, he played in the New England Collegiate Baseball League for the Danbury Westerners and the Cape Cod Baseball League for the Falmouth Commodores. In 2012, Sean was named the Commodores Pitcher of the Year. Sean was drafted in 2012 in the 29th round of theMLB draft by the Minnesota Twins but elected to go back to school for his senior year where he graduated with a Master’s Degree in Accounting. He ended his college career with the St. John’s record for innings pitched in a season and career, and was 2nd in career wins and 9th in career strikeouts. In 2013 he was selected in the 31st round of the MLB draft by the Chicago White Sox.

“My son is a 15u competitive travel baseball player who was looking to get additional instruction and I came across Coach Bill Consiglio through a camp over a year ago. My son has since worked with Coach Consiglio on many aspects of his game and I have to say that since then, my son has elevated his game and has become more confident. Coach Bill has a unique way of communicating with the kids so they understand what needs to be done. He has coached at the highest levels, including Division I and can very readily see things that other coaches do not. He understands what each child needs in order to succeed, improve and move onto the next level. If you are looking for a coach who understands the game and can help your child improve, I highly recommend Coach Consiglio.”
Coach Consiglio opened my eyes to the possibility of playing college baseball. He helped me in all aspects of my game; helping me to improve my skills on the field, my mental makeup about the game, and how to handle the college recruiting process. He was always there to offer honest and straightforward advice and continues to check up once my collegiate career began.
I fully appreciate the enthusiasm Bill and his staff have in communicating the sound principles of baseball. Far too often in the college recruiting process we see young players who have no understanding of how to play the game. Yet, they are unrealistically in pursuit of a college scholarship. I am not saying that every player who participates in 21st Century Sports will receive a college scholarship to play baseball. What I will say is that Coach Consiglio and his staff will provide players with the proper techniques to give them the best chance to have a positive baseball experience, no matter what level they aspire to play – college, high school or Little League. And as a parent myself, that’s all you can ask.
“Great program, well organized! Our son learned all about the game. Made lots of new friends. Highly recommended!”
The staff at 21st Century Sports has done an excellent job working with all of the baseball programs in our town – from TeeBall to Little League to Babe Ruth & up through the Varsity program – over the last few years. They take a comprehensive approach to the ‘well-being’ of our baseball feeder programs and have helped us instill a systematic instructional program to pass on to both our youngsters and coaches. More imporantly, they have established personal relationships and connections with each of the different baseball programs in our town. This comprehensive approach enables everyone in our baseball community, from the time they are first able to throw a ball until they leave for college, with the feeling that not only have they been provided with the very best possible instruction, but have worked and interacted with our children and parents – as people who sincerely care about the game of baseball as well as each individual’s skill development.
What do you do when your son wants only a Baseball Birthday Party for his 7th b’day?! I NOW KNOW – YOU CALL 21ST CENTURY SPORTS! Their staff was a HOME RUN! From the first time I contacted them to the last minute of the party it was a fantastic experience! Their baseball party team kept my son and his friends not only engaged but excited the entire time! In fact, when the party was over the dads were so inspired that they began their own post-party game! Weeks later parents were still approaching me and saying that my son’s baseball birthday party was one of the best parties their child has ever been to! Thanks so much to the staff at 21st Century Sports for making my son’s birthday party a day he will never forget….AND EVEN COMING UP WITH AN AUTOGRAPHED BALL OF HIS FAVORITE PLAYER! THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY CRAZY & UNEXPECTED!!! We can’t thank your team enough 🙂
Thank you for the fabulous baseball birthday party you organized and ran for our son Thomas! As parents who have hosted over a dozen outsourced birthday parties in the past, you should be proud to know that your company threw the most enjoyed and professionally organized party of any company we have ever worked with!
To quote the birthday boy: “My baseball party was the best birthday party I have ever had and ever been to!
Just wanted to let you know that, once again, your guys were awesome.
Professional, kind, and the kids had an absolute blast!
“My son loved every minute of camp!”
Coach Consiglio does a great job in developing the young player. He is very passionate and knowledgeable about the game and takes a lot of pride in seeing his players progress. I have no doubt he will lead his staff to undertake this same mission.
“Both of my boys raved about the camp. I’ve never seen them so excited every morning to go to camp!”
