Scott Muscat | Baseball Coach
Former STAC Spartans Head Baseball Coach for 20 years. In 2000 he took over a struggling NAIA program and helped to reclassify as an NCAA DII member. Under his leadership the Spartans have qualified for the conference tournament in 14 of 16 NCAA seasons while compiling a 240-152 conference record. Over the past seven seasons STAC has risen to the top of the East Region, compiling 261 victories during that span, notching seven consecutive 30+ win seasons and winning seven consecutive ECC Regular Season or Tournament Championships. In 2014 the Spartans won the NCAA East Region Championship and earned a trip to the NCAA DII National Championship in Cary, N.C. In 2015 STAC barely missed repeating as the NCAA East Champion, losing in the championship game. In 2017 they accomplished the feat again, going 44-17 and winning the East Region Championship, advancing to the National Championship in Grand Prairie, Texas, finishing #3, one game shy of the national championship game. In 2018 the Spartans had a pre-season ranking of #3 in the nation (CBN), going 39-15, finishing #17 in the nation (NCBWA) and winning both the ECC Regular Season & the ECC Tournament, but losing in the East Region Championship game.
The Spartan offense has routinely been the top hitting and base stealing team in the ECC, with five ECC team-batting titles and 1086 stolen bases over the past eight seasons. The Spartan pitchers have recently began to be a force to recon with, finishing in the top in the nation in E.R.A. for the last two seasons. In 2017 Muscat notched his 400th career NCAA victory (16 seasons) and currently has 467 wins. He has been honored as the NYCAC Coach of the Year, 4x ECC Coach of the Year, 2x East Region Coach of the Year (NCBWA) and the 2014 & 2017 ABCA East Region Coach of the Year. During Muscat’s tenure 8 players have been named All-American and 21 Spartans have gone on to play professionally (affiliate and independent). In 2011 he played an active role in helping to secure Provident Bank Park (newly named Palisades Credit Union Park) as the Spartan’s new home field. Under his leadership STAC players have played an active role in the community, serving in the Touching Bases baseball league for adults with disabilities, the Hope Academy in Nyack (for disadvantaged kids), Rockland BOCES Family Resource Center, Soup Angels and offering free player and coaches clinics to the local Little League affiliates. In 2015 STAC Baseball was selected as one of twenty-two national finalists for the NCAA DII Award of Excellence for community service. In 2016 the team was honored as the recipient of the East Coast Conference Community Engagement Award of Excellence. The baseball team has been instrumental in helping the STAC Athletic Department win eight consecutive East Coast Conference Community Cups for the highest number of community service hours.
Before assuming his coaching duties Muscat had a stellar playing career. As a prep star pitcher in North Carolina he amassed over 300 strikeouts, a 25-3 win/loss slate, 9-0 post-season mark, and two post-season no-hitters while leading Western Guilford H.S. to a 44-8 record (12-0 post-season) and two consecutive North Carolina State Championships. As a team captain and two-way player at UNC Charlotte he set the single game strikeout record of 16 Ks and hit .298 with 298 at-bats as an outfielder. Selected in the 18th round of the 1989 draft, he pitched two seasons in the Milwaukee Brewers minor league system until a second shoulder surgery ended his professional career.
Born in West Covina, California and raised in Greensboro, N.C., Muscat received his B.A. in Economics from UNC Charlotte ('90) and a Masters in Secondary Education from St. Thomas Aquinas ('02). He also works as a history teacher. He and his wife, former Kelly Adamson and sons Tyler (16), Cameron (14), and Mason (11) reside in New City, NY.
