North Shore Varsity Baseball Highlights
This week was a very successful week for the varsity baseball team. We won our first league-play series against Bethpage High School, taking two out of three games. Monday, we came out strong with the help and preparation of the coaching staff and won 7-1.
Tuesday, we had practice inside due to the bad weather and used the time to work on the pitchers’ timing pick offs and our team hitting in the cages. Wednesday, we had an outdoor practice and took batting practice on field. This practice was short and light in preparation for our Thursday game. Thursday we came out strong once again and won 4-0 on the road.
Unfortunately on Friday we lost 3-1 after battling back in the final two innings of play. It was an overall successful week for the varsity baseball team. The general attitude and moral of the team is quite good and we collectively have no complaints about practice, game play or the coaching staff. We all look forward to the remaining league games.
