Actually I find it best to never make a high school baseball prediction because the nature of the post season tournaments is so unpredictable. Trumbull hit a few groundballs with eyes on them, got a stellar pitching […] [Read More]

Handshakes: Trumbull moves on to FCIAC finals

on

FCIAC semifinal matchups

Three of the four lower seed won in the quarterfinals of the FCIAC tournament and nobody seemed particularly shocked by it. Staples nearly made it 4 for 4 but Greenwich did the little things and took advantage of mistakes to pull out the win and move on to Harbor Yard. There the Cardinals will face […] [Read More]

Handshakes: Greenwich moves on

on
Staples had Greenwich on the ropes in the second inning but could not get a big hit with the bases loaded, settling for one run on no hits and four walks. The inability to pounce ended up costing the Wreckers who fell 3-2 to Greenwich in the FCIAC semifinals. Two Wreckers’ errors in the 7th […] [Read More]

Handshakes: Another New Canaan-Greenwich classic

The game I am always most excited for is when Greenwich and New Canaan hook up. Why? Because these teams always manage to put on a tremendous baseball game.

Bethel’s Matt Liquori tosses gem against New Fairfield

on
Bethel High junior righthander Matt Liquori beat New Fairfield 3-1 Friday to improve to 4-0, asserting himself as the ace of a team that sits near the top of the South-West Conference standings despite receiving little preseason hype. Liquori, who calls his own games, has excellent command of three pitches, particularly a 12-to-6 curveball that he can and will throw in […] [Read More]
