Friends, family bid farewell to Eastchester H.S. baseball coach

Family, friends and students at Eastchester High School bid a final farewell Wednesday to legendary baseball coach Dom Cecere.



Hundreds of mourners packed Immaculate Conception Church in Tuckahoe for his funeral Mass.



Cecere was the baseball coach at Eastchester High School for more than 50 years. 



Along the way, he won 15 league titles, six sectional titles and one regional championship. 



He died last week of cancer at 75.



Cecere leaves behind a wife, three children and three grandchildren. 



He'll be laid to rest at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne. 



In 2014, Cecere was inducted into the New York State Baseball Hall of Fame.
