The only coach in the history of the Westmoreland baseball program, Mike Draghi is entering his 27th year leading the Wolfpack.
Draghi's tenure guiding Westmoreland baseball has featured championships, postseason appearances and scores of players who have gone on to play at four-year schools. Under his tutelage, the Wolfpack have won 713 games, an average of more than 27 victories per year. And in Draghi's 26 seasons, Westmoreland has won eight WPCC titles, including a run of six straight from 2011-16, and eight runner-up finishes.
In addition to the conference titles, Draghi helped lead the Wolfpack to Region XX championships and NJCAA World Series appearances in 2005 and 2011. The 2005 Wolfpack team finished fourth overall in the tournament after posting a 2-2 record, including a victory which eliminated three-time defending champion Richland (Texas) College.
Another staple to Draghi's programs has been sending players to four-year schools to continue their academic and athletic careers. Over 80 former Wolfpack players have moved on to play, including playing at the University of Pittsburgh, LaSalle University, Manhatten University, California (Pa.) University, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Slippery Rock University, Saint Vincent College, Mount Aloysius College, among others.
A 2007 inductee into the Pennsylvania American Legion Sports Hall of Fame and a member of the American Baseball Coaches Association, Draghi also served as head baseball coach at Greensburg Salem High School, as well as coaching the Greensburg American Legion and Junior American Legion teams.
Away from baseball, Draghi graduated from Northwestern Oklahoma State University in 1984 with a bachelor's degree in health and physical education and earned his Pennsylvania State Teacher Certificate from IUP in 1988. Since 1990, he has served as a health and physical education teacher in the Franklin Regional School District. Mike and his wife Mary Pat reside in Greensburg. He has one son, Nicholas, and two step-children, Katie (Boyd) Maloney and Daniel Boyd.
