Regional Stars hire Shawn Gillespie as Technical Director.
Submitted By Staff on Friday, August 14, 2020
The Regional Stars baseball organization is pleased to announce the hiring of baseball industry veteran Shawn Gillespie.  Shawn will serve as Technical Director effective immediately.

As Technical Director Shawn will oversee all aspects of player development, including practice, training as well as aligning the Stars with appropriate competition for the summer playing season.

Gillespie a former D1 and professional pitcher founded and operated the Ontario Nationals from 2007-2019. The Nationals are a founding member of the CPBL which is widely recognized as one of the premier baseball leagues in Canada.






During his tenure with the Nationals well over 100 athletes received scholarships to US schools which includes D1, Pro and Team Canada players to name a few.  

“I am really excited to be working with younger players (9-14) that choose the Stars.  During my time with the Nationals I realized it takes at least two years for a player to gain proper fundamentals, if a player starts at 15 or 16, he is at a significant disadvantage.  Learning the proper fundamentals at an early age will be a significant advantage.”  

Gillespie continued on to say “there is a hole in the market for players in the 9-14 age bracket, we will provide an avenue for players to train correctly and be surrounded with other like minded, motivated and highly skilled players. 

Please join the Regional stars in welcoming Shawn Gillespie as Technical Director.
