New Jersey native joins Scarlet Knights after stint at St. John’s

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (August 24, 2017) – Rutgers baseball head coach Joe Litterio has announced that Peter Barron has been hired as director of player development for the Scarlet Knights. Barron, who comes from St. John’s, will assist the coaching staff with on campus recruiting, opponent analysis, game preparation, practice reviews and team travel among other duties.

 

“We are excited to welcome Pete to our staff,” Litterio said. “He brings with him experience and knowledge that will benefit our program and the development of our student-athletes.”

 

“I am very excited about joining Rutgers baseball and being able to join the Big Ten Conference while representing the state of New Jersey,” Barron said. “I am extremely grateful to coach Litterio and the administration for giving me the opportunity to join the amazing staff here. I am looking forward to getting started and helping the coaches, players and program reach new heights.”

 

Before arriving in Piscataway, Barron spent two seasons as the director of baseball operations at St. John’s. He helped with all aspects of the program, including apparel, equipment, team travel, meals, video, statistics and game charts. Barron also oversaw a staff of five student managers, assisted with team community service and served as the liaison between the coaching staff and departments within athletics.

 

Barron started off as a student manager for the Red Storm in Sept. 2012 and served three seasons before joining the staff as a graduate assistant. He managed equipment and player development video among other duties, working as the head manager in 2014 and 2015.

 

In addition to working in operations, Barron has coaching experience with summer teams and camps. He most recently has been an assistant coach for the Shelter Island Bucks in the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League the last two summers, handling roster construction, community outreach and mentoring the position players. He also coached American Legion from 2012 to 2014 and worked as an instructor at Red Storm Baseball Camps for four years.

 

Originally from Long Valley, New Jersey, Barron owns two degrees from St. John’s. He earned his master’s in sports management in 2017 and his bachelors in marketing in 2015.
