Coach Curtis Camilli comes from a long line of baseball players. Most notably, his great grandfather, Dolph Camilli, played for the Brooklyn Dodgers where he was a two-time all-star and elected into the Dodger Hall of Fame.   

Coach Curtis’s own career began at Santa Clara High School, where he played second base, shortstop, and pitcher on the Varsity team his sophomore through senior years. After graduation, Curtis played for West Valley Junior College, and won the “Relief Pitcher of the Year” award.  Curtis later transferred to Lee University where he was a pitcher and ultimately achieved a nationwide ranking of #1.

Following Lee University, Curtis played three years as a professional and earned top honors in most pitching categories. In his first professional season with the Alamogordo Pupfish (Pecos League), Curtis made the all-star team.  Curtis was a successful pitcher, second baseman and hitter.  While playing with the Edinburg Roadrunners on July 4th in front of a crowd of 5000, Curtis pitched a complete game, three hit, shutout, striking out 12 batters. In his final professional year, Curtis played with the Fargo Red Hawks.   An injury brought his playing career to a close, but lead him to coaching.

For the last 3 plus years, Coach Camilli has been running teams, coaching players and giving lessons to share his vast knowledge of the game.  Sirious Baseball is thankful to have him as part of our program.
