Tom Sox Announce Smith, Tejada, Wirth as Assistant Coaches

The Charlottesville Tom Sox are excited to welcome Trevon Smith, Cristian Tejada, and Brian Wirth as assistant coaches for the 2023 season.


CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. – The Charlottesville Tom Sox announced today (May 29) that Trevon Smith, Cristian Tejada, and Brian Wirth will join the Tom Sox as assistant coaches on the 2023 staff. The trio joins Head Coach Lyndon Coleman to round out the 2023 coaching staff as the season approaches its commencement on June 1.


Trevon Smith joins the Tom Sox after serving the 2023 season as an assistant coach for Charlottesville High School, coaching on the same field that he will for the Tom Sox this summer. He also serves as a coach at The Baseball Academy in Charlottesville, mentoring middle and high school players as they continue to progress their baseball careers.


Smith spent his college career at Division II Glenville State, becoming one of the greatest players in program history. During his five seasons with the Pioneers, Smith became the program’s all-time hits, home runs, runs scored and doubles (both tied) leader while finishing second all-time in batting average. He finished his career with 198 hits, 39 home runs, 39 doubles, 128 runs scored, and a .344 batting average.


Smith graduated from Glenville State with a degree in Athletic Coaching & Conditioning. He also spent two seasons in the Valley League, playing for the Tom Sox in late 2018 and the Rebels in late 2021. Smith came to the Pioneers from Orange County High School, where he starred in football, basketball, and baseball for the Fighting Hornets.


Cristian Tejada joins the Tom Sox for his first career coaching job, having just obtained his graduate certificate from Miami (Ohio). Tejada played six seasons for the Redhawks, appearing in 126 career games and hitting a career .294 with an .838 OPS. He earned his Bachelor’s in Kinesiology & Health, a minor in Interactive Media Studies, and a Graduate Certificate in Sports Psychology. Tejada also spent two seasons in collegiate summer ball, playing for the Battle Creek Bombers of the Northwoods League and the Valley Blue Sox in the NECBL.


Brian Wirth joins the Tom Sox while acting as the Program Director and a hitting/outfield coach with the Mid-Atlantic Orioles showcase organization in Richmond, VA, helping develop and mentor the next generation of college and professional baseball players. Prior to his role with the Orioles, Wirth spent three seasons as a volunteer assistant coach with the St. John’s Red Storm, training the team’s infielders and working on hitting and strength training. As the infield coach, Wirth trained a pair of All-Big East selections in both 2021 and 2022; including a pair of First Team selections in 2021.


Prior to his three seasons at St. John’s, Wirth worked as the Director of Hitting at Prime Performance Athlete Training in Gaithersburg, Maryland. At Prime Performance, Wirth instructed hitters using cutting-edge baseball technology and focused on both the physical and mental sides of playing baseball. The Prime Performance program that Wirth helped lead has been endorsed by top MLB players and coaches, including former Virginia Cavalier Brandon Guyer and multiple Major League coaches and executives.


Wirth had two stints on Junior College coaching staffs prior to joining Prime Performance, spending time at Patrick Henry Community College in Martinsville, VA and Fayetteville Tech in Fayetteville, NC. While at Patrick Henry, Wirth recruited two MLB Draft picks in Bradley Hanner and Magnus Ellerts, coaching Hanner. Hanner pitched in two games with the Tom Sox in 2018 during the playoff run, and both now play for the Guardians organization.


Wirth began his coaching career in high school ball, coaching in both Alaska and Virginia. With his alma mater Woodbridge High School, Wirth served as the pitching coach; helping lead the team to the state playoffs for the first time since 2010. The 2010 season was the Wirth’s senior season as a player, during which he helped contribute to the team’s 27-1 record and state runner-up finish.


Wirth played outfield and infield for four seasons in college, split between Frederick Community College and Limestone University. He graduated from Limestone in 2016 with a degree in Sport Management and later went on to earn a Master’s in Sport Administration from Arkansas State. Following his college career, Wirth played the winter of 2016 in the Puerto Rican Instructional Winter League and the spring & summer of 2017 in the independent Empire League.
