Denis Bailey is the Head Coach of the Titans 18U Baseball team. He also serves as the organization’s College Placement Coordinator and its Hitting Coordinator. Significantly, Denis was instrumental in placing 13 Titans student-athletes in US Colleges from the Class of 2022 before Christmas 2021. His organization of the Fall College Trip in October 2021 spurred a number of Titans College commitments, notably to excursion stops at the University of Rio Grande (Ohio), Genessee Community College (New York), Salem International University (West Virginia), and Garrett College (Maryland).
Denis joined the Titans Baseball Club as the Associate Head Coach of the 17U squad and imported a wealth of CPBL and IBL coaching experience to our organization. Based on his experience as a PBR Ontario Scout and his hand in developing MLB draft picks over the course of his coaching career, Denis assisted Director of Baseball Operations Lawrence Vera with the placement of College players. Denis’s work with the CPBL Toronto Mets was wide-ranging, including his role as 14U Toronto Mets Field Manager and Program Catching Instructor in 2019. He also attended the Mets’ Fall College Trip as the Third Base Coach in 2019. In 2020, he was the 18U Mets Assistant Coach, 3rd Base Coach, and Program Catching Instructor. Prior to his work with the Toronto Mets, he was the 10U Fieldhouse Pirates Field Manager and worked extensively with this CPBL organization’s development program.
From 2015 to 2017, he coached Third Base and was the bench coach for the Kitchener Panthers of the Intercounty Baseball League. While with the IBL Panthers, he coached Frank Camillo Morejon, Yorbis Borroto, Noelvis Entenza, and Yulexis La Rosa (Cuban National Team Members) as well as Daniel Procopio who was drafted by the Los Angeles Angels. While in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, Denis also served at the 3rd Base Coach and Catching Instructor in 2015 and 2016 with the Wilfrid Laurier University Golden Hawks of the OUA.
In 2014, Denis served the Burlington Bandits Intercounty Baseball League organization as their 3rd Base Coach and Bench Coach where he coached JD Osborne who was drafted by the Miami Marlins. In 2012 and 2013 with the North York Blues, he was the team’s 21U Field Manager and coached Jordan Romano of the MLB Toronto Blue Jays. Denis also coached the East York Bulldogs 21U club from 2008-2011 where he coached Jeff Gibbs who was drafted by the Arizona Diamondbacks. Denis played his US College baseball for the Genesee Community College Cougars in Batavia, New York where he was a catcher.
Denis’s rich coaching history, his development of MLB and College draft picks, and his US College catching experiences make him a valuable resource for the Titans Baseball Club.
