Utica, N.Y. - Proctor head baseball coach, David Guido, was honored at Utica City Hall with a day in his honor, Wednesday.
The City of Utica Common Council, lead by Councilman Joe Marino, a former player of his, declared Wednesday, 'Coach David Guido Day' in Utica.
This comes in honor of his 500th career win, which he reached in May with the Raiders.
Guido began his career as a varsity coach in Utica back in 1986, and after 30-plus years in the business, said this honor is very important to him.
"It’s a special thing, we’ve had some great players a proctor over the years we’ve had a lot of help," said Guido. "This goes out to all my ex-players and the guys that I’ve coached with."
"He’ll tell you it’s because he’s been around a long time, that’s a cop out because he’s a great coach," said Councilman Marino. He’s got a 75% win percentage, it’s not because he’s been around a long time, it’s because he knows the game, he knows how to get the most out of the players."
Coach Guido and the Raiders went 12-6 this past year with a 7-2 Tri-Valley League record.
