Russo expresses optimism in youth movement

Hofstra baseball head coach John Russo can be found in his office on an early Wednesday morning in his gray quarter-zip Pride athletics shirt, finishing up phone calls with a hearty laugh. His desk is flooded with pictures of his family – mostly his children – and behind him are roughly 20 different Hofstra baseball caps. While his office is a representation of the passionate, family-oriented and sincere person that he is, Russo knows just how vital it is to drastically improve the on-field production that has resulted in a 29-74 record over the past two seasons.
