Cirella on Harrison Barlow - "Harry had spent a year and a half with us in 2015-2017 and was part of our first championship in 2016. He does a tremendous job with the infielders as well as helping with the day to day things. He played for me at URI and also was an assistant for me while I coached the Ocean State Waves, so he knows the expectations and really has a great understanding of the system we have in place. He throws great BP, can handle a fungo bat, and will also be a guy who helps out our team defense as well as offensive skills. On top of it all he's a great person and will be a great role model for our guys."
Previous coaching experience includes:
- Salve Regina University (2015, 2016 - CCC champions)
- Rhode Island College (2017, 2018)
- Ocean State Waves (2015, 2016)
Primarily focused with hitting, infield defense, baserunning, recruiting and coaching first and third base.
