Jeff Palumbo, who last worked in the MIAA as the athletic director at Towson Catholic High School, has been named the new head baseball coach at Archbishop Spalding, the school announced this week.

Palumbo, who replaces Steve Miller at Spalding, also served as the head varsity baseball coach at Towson Catholic during part of his tenure at the school, which closed following the 2008-2009 school year.

Palumbo has operated the Palumbo Baseball Camps for many years and he won a CIAA championship as the head baseball at Bowie State University in 1996. He also had great success as a coach in amateur baseball, managing five Babe Ruth Maryland State championship squads and five Mid-Atlantic Regional title winners.

“With his vast baseball perspective, his wealth of experience working with student athletes, and his administrative background Coach Palumbo will provide Spalding’s program with the leadership necessary for continued success,” said Spalding athletic director Lee Dove. “Jeff is a true baseball guy with an educator’s approach to he game. He is well connected in the baseball community.”

Palumbo’s son Dan graduated from Spalding in 2006 and played baseball for the Cavaliers before going on to a college career at George Mason University.

“We are very fortunate to have him join our staff and work with our players,” added Dove. “I look forward to our relationship as the Cavalier program continues to develop, achieve and succeed in the very competitive MIAA A Conference.”
