Ruben Someillan is entering his first year coaching in the Collegiate League of the Palm Beaches, being named the head man for the Jupiter Wave. Even though this is his first season as a head coach, he does bring plenty of experience to the table.

Someillan is a native of south Florida. Born in Miami, he played high school ball at Florida Christian School. Playing center field, Someillan was a three-year starter, while being named First Team All-Miami-Dade outfield in both 2014 and 2015. In 2015 he hit .460 and stole 16 bases. 

After high school, Someillan played in college at Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida. He made the All-Freshman Team in the Atlantic Sun Conference in 2017 as the lead off man in center field. By the time his college career finished, Someillan would set a school record by reaching base safely in the first 49 consecutive games to start his senior season in 2021. He also holds the school record for games played, at-bats, and hit-by-pitches, and didn’t commit a single error in his entire 5 year career at Jacksonville.

Someillan would go on to play for the Peninsula Pilots and the Savannah Bananas in the Coastal Plain League. He has also been an assistant coach for Nova Southeastern University in Division II. 

Ruben has always wanted to be able to run his own team, which is exactly why he took the job with the Wave. He loves the atmosphere and sheer unpredictability of the game. After all, baseball is an incredibly random sport. Along with that, he loves creating relationships with players and coaches. 

One of the things that Someillan has learned as a coach is that not all players like or need to be coached the same way. Creating good working and personal relationships can go hand in hand when adjusting to how he coaches players. He prides himself on adjusting his style of coaching to how his players respond the best because, like you and me, not all people are wired the same mentally or physically. Someillan understands that and makes it a point to do what he can to help his players. 

I had to ask who Ruben’s favorite players were growing up. His first was Alex Rodriguez, it seems like every kid from that time period’s favorite was A-Rod, plus he’s a Miami guy. The other was Juan Pierre because he said they had similar styles of play. Both outfielders, both leadoff men, both reached base a ton, both stole a bunch of bases. It checks out once you break it down.

The players on the Wave should warm up to Coach Someillan pretty easily. He is more than ready to get to work with his players and get this 2022 CLPB season underway.
