The Pittsburgh Pirates today announced they have hired Marc DelPiano as a Special Assistant to Senior Vice President, General Manager Neal Huntington.

DelPiano, 41, spent the last three seasons (2006-08) as a Special Assignment Scout with the Boston Red Sox.

Prior to joining Boston, DelPiano worked a total of 10 years with the Montreal Expos and Florida Marlins. He was an area scout with the Expos from 1996-2000, evaluating players in the Northeast region, before serving the Expos/Marlins as the East Coast Scouting Supervisor through the 2003 season. Marc also served the Marlins as their Director of Player Development during the 2003 World Series Championship season and again in 2004 before being named their Director of International Scouting for 2005.

After playing two seasons (1989-1990) as an infielder in the Cleveland and Houston organizations, DelPiano spent five seasons as an area scout and Minor League coach with Texas, coaching for affiliates in Erie, PA, and Hudson Valley, NY. DelPiano joins Jim Benedict, Joe Ferrone and Keith Champion as recent additions to Huntington's staff. They join Larry Corrigan, Jax Robertson, Doug Strange and Pete Vuckovich in the role as Special Assistant to the General Manager. As previously announced, Jesse Flores is now the club's West Coast Scouting Supervisor, Roy Smith's contract was not renewed for 2009 and Louie Eljaua decided to pursue other opportunities outside the organization.
