Dominic Anthony Cecere

The Dominic A. Cecere Play For 10 Foundation is dedicated to honoring the legacy of Coach Cecere as an Educator, Mentor and Coach by awarding scholarships to deserving college-bound students and engaging in other charitable endeavors consistent with Coach Cecere's life of selfless giving.  

Legends are made, not born - The "Cecere Way"

Dom Cecere, affectionately known as "Coach", coached the Eastchester  Eagles baseball team for 52 seasons, amassing 737 wins, which is the  greatest number of wins in the history of New York State HS baseball.  His coaching tenure also includes stints within the minor league baseball ranks. He was known as a premier pitching coach and professional pitchers often turned to him for advice during their winter workouts.  Coach also received numerous individual awards, including being inducted into the Westchester County and New York State Halls of  Fame as well as receiving the prestigious National Baseball Coach of the Year Award.

The story of Coach Cecere only begins with the stats mentioned above and do not define the man or legacy he left with  thousands of kids and families.  His most significant contribution occurred off the field with his students and players, where he instilled the principles of working hard, playing by the rules, respecting one another and carrying oneself with dignity.  A father figure to many, Coach enabled players to fulfill their dreams in athletics and academics.  In the little town of Eastchester, NY it is known as the  "Cecere Way" of doing things.  He was a man who always did the right thing and lived by the principles that he preached which as we all know is not always easy. 

On April 1, 2017 Dom Cecere lost his third and final battle to cancer.  He is survived by his wife Lyn, three children and three grandchildren.  

The foundation has been created to award scholarships to deserving college-bound students and engage in other charitable endeavors consistent with Coach Cecere's life of selfless giving.

Members of the foundation were all  privileged to have been coached and or mentored by Dom Cecere and we are  looking to raise the additional funds to ensure that college-bound students, that epitomize the “Cecere Way,” continue to receive scholarships in Coach Dom Cecere’s name.  We have built  a memorial using genorous donations from various organizations and people that allows all past and future generations the ability to remember and benefit from Coach Cecere's teachings on and off the field.  The memorial is adjacent to the baseball field  located within the Eastchester High School campus that recognizes Coach as a scholar, mentor and father figure to all the students and alumni. 

Please help us continue to raise funds to memorialize the legacy and career of Coach Cecere through financing  college scholarships in his name.
