Dion Takes Over Milford High Baseball
Milford High's storied baseball program will be under new leadership beginning this spring as Alex Dion steps into the role after serving as the varsity assistant for the past four seasons.
"Obviously, it's an exciting time for me, it's something I have wanted and worked for, for a long time," Dion said. "I love Milford. It's a great sports town, there's tremendous support from the community and our school system. It's just a great place to be a head coach."
Former Athletic Director Rich Piergustavo hired Dion, 28, six years ago as the freshman football coach and the Westboro native became a full-time teacher in the practical arts department a year later. A three-year varsity college baseball player at Western New England University, Dion spent one year as the freshman baseball coach at Algonquin before working with the Milford High program as a varsity assistant for four seasons under Paul Pellegrini.
Pellegrini said he elected to step down to spend more time with his family. 
"I've been coaching at the varsity level the last 14 years and it would be very hard to continue and try to juggle both varsity and all my kids' activities," the outgoing coach said. "The real positive out of this though is that I will be able to bring my years of coaching experience and enthusiasm to many of the youth programs."
Dion, his successor, has also spent the past two summers coaching the Northboro American Legion team and worked with a college showcase team before that. He hopes to bring his varied experience to building a strong program with the Scarlet Hawks.
"Milford has a storied background to begin with," Dion said, "and I plan on running an organized program from top to bottom from the varsity to the freshmen that prides itself on respect, accountability, and competing at the highest level every day."
Dion said he plans to work with Milford Athletic Director Peter Boucher to get youth camps up and running for the winter months and will also be meeting with returning varsity players. Milford will have numerous spots to fill after graduating a large senior class in the spring and Dion said there will be plenty of opportunities for younger players.
"I want to build on what we have been doing and that means being highly successful over a long period of time," Dion said. "I want to leave my mark on this program and hopefully bring it to new heights."
