DeSilva retains Hirsch, hires Neal and Kemp.
Alexandria, VA — Since being hired as the head coach in August of 2012, David DeSilva has been building his team. His philosophy is centered around player development. His goal is to create a sustainable winning environment in Alexandria. He’s added depth to the pitching staff and speed to the order, while compiling a roster that he feels will be the most competitive in franchise history. With the roster complete, DeSilva needed to compliment his players with the appropriate staff. He is excited to announce the hiring of 3 coaches for 2013. DeSilva and the Aces will retain 2012 first base coach Andrew Hirsch as well introduce two new members to the staff; Shaughn Neal and Kyle Kemp.
Andrew Hirsch: Hirsch enters his second year with the Aces. Originally from Falls Church, Hirsch proved to be a valuable asset to the Aces in 2012, as he served as the first base coach. He began his coaching career as an Assistant Coach at the St. Albans School in Washington, D.C. in the spring of 2012 and spent the 2013 season as an Assistant Coach at Gettysburg College in Gettysburg, PA. DeSilva and the Aces are excited to have Andrew back on the staff.
Shaughn Neal: Shaughn is entering his first year with the Aces and is originally from Charlotte, NC. He earned a baseball and academic scholarship to Wingate University where he started all four years as a second baseman for the Bulldogs. After graduation he started his coaching career with On Deck Baseball Skills Development Academy in Charlotte. Shaughn has played professionally in Reno for Silver Sox of the Golden Baseball League. Currently, Shaughn plays, lives, and works in Chapel Hill. He is the head Junior Varsity coach and infield specialist at East Chapel Hill High School.

Parts ways with Aces to focus on new position
ALEXANDRIA – Former Aces’ Head Coach Corey Haines, who guided the Aces for the past two seasons, received a promotion at Shippensburg University for the 2013 season, which has forced the Aces and Haines to go their separate ways. Haines was a Volunteer Assistant Coach at Shippensburg in 2012, but with the promotion, he will now have to dedicate more time to the position, meaning he can’t return to the Aces in 2013. The Aces have promoted assistant coach David DeSilva to Head Coach for 2013.
Haines was the Head Coach with the Aces for two seasons, starting in 2011. After a 16-25 record his first season, Haines led the Aces to a franchise best 20 wins and the organizations first ever playoff appearance in 2012. The Aces were eliminated in the first round by the Bethesda Big Train.
