Director of Baseball Operations
Steven Rosen was named the director of operations for the Notre Dame baseball team heading into the 2019 season after spending the last two years at Georgia State as a graduate assistant and assistant coach. Rosen worked with former assistant coach Adam Pavkovich during his two years with the Panthers.
During his time at Georgia State, Rosen worked alongside Pavkovich in developing the hitters and catchers. Rosen worked intently with catcher Nick Gatewood who was selected in the 11th round by the San Diego Padres in the 2018 MLB Draft. Gatewood was the third highest selection in Georgia State baseball history. During the 2018 season, Gatewood was named to the Johnny Bench Award Watch List, National Player of the Week (April 9; Collegiate Baseball & Perfect Game) and he earned first team All-Sun Belt honors at the end of the season.
Rosen also worked closely with shortstop Justin Jones, who signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Angles after his four years with the Panthers.
Rosen has significant experience in professional baseball after serving as a video operations intern with the Trenton Thunder, the New York Yankees Double A affiliate, in 2014-15. During that stint, the Trenton roster featured numerous current Major League players, including Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez, Luis Severino and Tyler Austin.
Rosen operated the Trackman system and worked with the coaches, staff and players to provide unique data to improve player evaluation and development.
Following his internship with the Thunder, he attended Major League Baseball Scout School in the fall of 2015, becoming a certified MLB scout.
Rosen also served as a basketball operations intern with the New York Knicks and then worked as a site leader and camp director for the Atlanta Braves Headfirst Summer Camps in 2016.
In the summer of 2017, Rosen was a head coach with Atlanta-area travel baseball program Team Elite.
The New Jersey native won a state championship at Morris Knolls High School and then lettered at catcher for the College of New Jersey, where he earned his undergraduate degree in English in 2016. He is pursuing a master’s degree in Georgia State’s J. Mack Robinson College of Business.
