After owning a very successful ¬fleet repair business for many years, Sean decided to take his business background and softball knowledge to Firecracker Softball, Inc.
Sean Brashear has been coaching softball for 16 years. After the rec ball life, Sean coached a very successful 10U So Cal Crunch team that took 2nd and 5th in national championships. Shortly after, Sean brought his team and talents to the Firecracker organization. Since then, he’s never looked back. Sean has built his Firecrackers Brashear brand to become synonymous with success both on and off the field. According to Sean, the experiences are all memorable, starting with so many amazing coaches who have been part of this success; Manny Valenzuela, Jim Wheeler, Roman Gallegos, Mark Thornburg, Laughn Barth, Tony Tornero, Roger Agromania, Doug Myers, Mike Smith, and Steve Harrington. Sean has been fortunate to have had many great players over the years. To date, he has had over 100 Firecracker athletes that have played at D1 level universities. As a coach in this established program with teams competing from 12U to 18U, Sean has been fortunate to be part of four national championship teams, nine top-5 national finishes, and 14 top-10 national finishes. In the Colorado Fireworks Championships, at the 14U, 16U, and 18U age divisions, they have collected nine top-10 finishes as well as participated in tv game appearances at the 14U, 16U, and 18U age divisions. In addition to his success with the Firecrackers, Sean has coached six years at Chino High School (assistant coach), two years at Roosevelt High School (assistant coach), and is the current head softball coach at Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana. As a high school coach, Sean has accumulated six league championships, three CIF finals appearances, two CIF championships, one CIF State Championship, one CIF finalist, and one CIF semi-finalist. Sean was on his way to another successful HS season; however, it was cut short due to COVID-19.
Sean has two beautiful daughters, Vanessa (25), who graduated from Cal Baptist University, and Amanda (21) graduated from Maryland University. Both daughters were very athletic, Vanessa in soccer and Amanda in softball.
