Steve Marchi was appointed the first-ever Head Baseball Coach at Roosevelt University on September 1, 2009 and charged with building a new program that will begin its inaugural intercollegiate season in the 2010-11 at the NAIA level. The launch of the baseball program is part of the revival of intercollegiate athletics at Roosevelt University. Roosevelt has not sponsored athletics since 1989 and has never featured a baseball team.

Marchi, a 2008 graduate of Roosevelt, joined the Lakers after serving for one season as the head coach at William Rainey Harper College in Palatine, Ill., where he took over a program with only five returning players and quickly rebuilt a team that would go on to surpass its win total from the prior season and produced three All-North Central Community College Conference performers and one All-Region 4 honoree.

Prior to his stint at Harper, Marchi spent five years as the Facilities Manager at Arlington Park Racecourse where he managed operations for a department with a $7.5 million annual budget and was home to some of horseracing's most prestigious events.

Marchi was a standout performer as a player, serving as team captain and earning conference all-star honors as a pitcher at Palatine High School. He went on to receive all-conference accolades at Southeastern Illinois College and all-region honors at Oakton Community College.

Marchi is married with two sons. The family resides in Palatine, Ill.
