Twenty-eight years, 346 wins and Steve Messina was certain back in 2021 that his time coaching high school baseball was over.
Never say never.
Messina is the new baseball coach at Wahconah Regional High School. He replaces Ernie Wellington, who took over as the Wahconah varsity coach in 2019. Wellington stepped aside for personal reasons.
Messina, who retired as head coach at Mount Greylock just prior to the start of the 2021 season, is the vice principal at Wahconah, and said that’s how the conversation led back to his office on Old Windsor Road.
