Cevette has a wealth of high-level baseball experience and knowledge that he brought to PBR with the launch of New York in early 2014. After being named Pennsylvania’s 2002 Gatorade Player of the Year, Cevette was drafted in the third round by the Cleveland Indians and signed out of high school. The hard-throwing 6-foot-4 left-hander was fast-tracked in the Indians organization, making it up to Triple-A at the age of 21. A torn labrum interrupted his progress and he retired in 2009, becoming the recruiting coordinator at Niagara. In 2010, Cevette was named the head coach at Corning CC, a position he held for two years. After a brief stint in coaching, Cevette decided to give pitching one more try. At an open tryout, Cevette hit 97 mph and was immediately signed by the Pirates. His arm injuries resurfaced in the Puerto Rico winter league, forcing him to walk away from playing for good.
