This spring, watching East baseball is becoming the happening thing.
Last week, scores of fans braved the light hail to watch East beat the School of the Arts. Today, many more came to watch East play Edison. The Eagles gave up their first hits of the year, but handily won their third straight RCAC game 13 – 3.
As seen in Following a historic season, East baseball opens with back-to-back no hitters., last year the Eagles made it all the way to the sectional finals.
A game at East is the gathering of a whole community: students, teachers, alumni, fathers, mothers, aunts, uncles, and grandparents. Last year many of the same people made the trek to Dwyer Stadium in Batavia for those sectional finals. And this year, the sky is the limit for poised and polished Eagles who feel they can compete with anyone: city or suburb or the team in Flushing, NY they will play on their spring break road trip.It’s a long season and the team will face tough competition, especially tomorrow against Bishop Kearney. But, win or lose, the excitement grows on Culver Road.
