Scarsdale Baseball Club Hosts Baseball Classic

16U CHAMPIONSHIP Team Pic1On Memorial Day Weekend, Scarsdale Baseball Club (SBC) hosted its 13th annual Westchester Baseball Classic. This invitational event drew 18 teams from across Westchester to compete in 3 age brackets: 14u, 15u and 16u. Teams came from as far as Ossining and as near as New Rochelle. SBC entered 2 teams in15u and 16u and Scarsdale Little League entered a team in the 14u bracket. In all, over 300 players were involved in the 3-day event.

For the first time since the inception of the tournament, Scarsdale's 16u team claimed the first place trophy. They came from behind to tie the Elmsford Regulators in the Saturday opener 1-1, and then beat House of Sports 5-3 in Saturday's second game to even their record.

15u Team PicOn Sunday the Raiders beat Croton Bombers 4-2. Then the Raiders had to face Elmsford again in the Championship game. This time the Raiders jumped on the Regulators early and were up 6-0 after 2 innings. Sophomore Devin McDonald pitched a scoreless game through four innings. Roy Krishnan came in to relieve and Tyler Mandel can in for the 7th to slam the door on the Regulators as the Raiders held on to win 6-3.

The 14u team played their opening game at Dean Field at Scarsdale High School on Friday night. It was their first time these middle schoolers had the chance to play on the big field and they stepped up to play their best. They battled Tuckahoe Crush into extra innings but came up short in the eighth inning in what may have been one of the most exciting games of the tournament. The mostly 13 year-old squad had a great experience as they went 2-2 against the older teams including a tense 3-1 victory over the NY Mayhem in their final game on Sunday.
