Farewell to Softball Coaching Legend: Angelo Acevedo

Farewell to Softball Coaching Legend: Angelo Acevedo




By Andy Cohen

(Mission Times Courier, San Diego, CA) - Chances are if you live in the San Carlos/Navajo community of San Diego, and you have a daughter who played youth softball, you’ve crossed paths with Angelo Acevedo. There’s a strong possibility your daughter even played for him. He was the surly, intense, driven, compassionate and adoring coach that manned the dugout for 33 years, cherishing every last second of it.

Acevedo died March 4, 2013 at Mercy Hospital. He was 76 years old.

A native of East Harlem in New York City, Acevedo was fiercely competitive. Just like about every other kid who grew up in New York, Acevedo played stickball in the streets and pick-up games of baseball at the local park – when they could scrounge up enough equipment to play, that is.

The ex-Marine wouldn’t take to softball, though, until his ex-wife signed their daughter up for what was then known as “Bobby Sox.” Acevedo was amused at the notion that softball could be considered anything close to a real sport. Before you pass judgment, his family told him, why don’t you go see it for yourself.

He did, and he was hooked.

Throughout the years, Acevedo’s teams won several championships, including one national championship in 1983. But as competitive as he was, it was always clear that winning was not the most important part of taking the diamond. “He cared more about the girls than winning,” said his wife, Lisa Acevedo.  Coaching softball was his way of teaching them about life, she said.

At the beginning of each season, said Lisa, Angelo would take a team photo and another at the end of the season. “They looked so different!” she said.

“He enjoyed watching them mature.”

“He was by far my favorite coach,” said Melissa Farrior, a former player of Acevedo’s who readily admits to being “obsessed” with softball as a young teen.

As a coach, said Farrior, he was well tuned in to the individual personalities of his players. He knew who he could tease and joke with them when a mistake was made, and who among his team needed to be dealt with in a more sensitive manner. And he was always there to listen, acting as a sounding board for whatever problems the girls might have had. “He had such a rapport with the girls,” said Lisa. “They had a great respect for him.”

Acevedo followed his players’ careers even after their playing days with him were over, attending high school and college games whenever he could. Even outside of softball, Acevedo was there to lend support.

An aspiring singer, Farrior recalls Acevedo encouraging her to pursue her dream. The girls were his family, said Farrior. “He was like my grandpa.”

“He was very highly thought of in the community,” said Bob Farrior, a longtime friend. “He couldn’t go anywhere in the community without one of his former players recognizing him.”

Health problems started to catch up with Acevedo. In 2005, he lost a kidney due to a blockage that rendered the organ useless. In 2006, he had heart surgery to correct an arrhythmia, and it is suspected the dye used to detect his heart problem damaged his one remaining kidney. He had been on dialysis ever since.

Through it all, though, he still coached, hardly missing a day.  “He was the type of person who couldn’t sit still,” said Lisa.  “He was 24 years older than me and he ran me ragged.”

In early March, Acevedo was taken to the Mercy Hospital emergency room with swelling throughout his neck, face and tongue. When steroid treatments briefly brought the swelling down, doctors performed a biopsy. By the time the results had come back, though, it was too late. Angelo Acevedo had succumbed to cancer in his tongue.  

Mr. Acevedo is survived by his wife, Lisa, daughter Stacey and her husband Mark, along with three grandchildren, Tyler, Nicolas, and Alexis, who reside in Columbus, Ohio. He will be sorely missed.
