Now that de Marte is officially signing with Richmond, I’d like to acknowledge any other kids who are signing or orally committing. If there’s been any developments since the end of baseball season, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Um…kennedy…no disrespect or lakeland but…carmel has kyle mahoney playing and starting at high point. Graczyk d2 player of the year..at cw post last year, playing at suny cortlandt this spring….volpe playing d1 at towson….anderson in the rotation at st lawrence….rojas playing d1 at buffalo….give them recognition
Graczyk d2 player of the year..at cw post last year, playing at suny cortlandt this spring – the reason why that he switched schools?
Briarcliff choked. The only way they can win is to move down to C or have all the teams better then them move up. I hear each Briarcliff player has to play 3 outs and get 1 at bat every game?? Sound familiar
Zac was a much better player then one who would go to Post !. He was given very poor advice and now was stuck. In order to play at a better program he could only go to the top D3 team in the Northeast. Zac was the one player on the Rangers who could have really gone to a solid D1 school and done very well.
He will be a top candidate for player of the year at Cortlandt also
Because – Why would you put down the 2009 Rangers class to pump up your boy? Is he your son? I think Nick Camastro had a very good Freshman year at Manhattan. If you want to respond by putting down their program, then compare it to Post and Cortland first.
N.Camastro is an outstanding player. Started at S/S as a Frosh at Manh. – excellent glove+arm, good contact hitter who batted around .300, and is an excellent base-runner and team leader. Are you saying that Zac G. is going to the top D3 program as a stop-gap on his way to a D1 perhaps, or is he going to stay there for the duaration ? This is great news on Seth Lamando. Congratulations to him. Coastal was in the top 5 in the nation last year before losing , I believe in a super-regional.
by saying Zac was the best player is a fact and was not meant to put down anyother player. he could have played at a big D1 similar to Coastal. Again this is not putting down Manhattan who is probably one of the top 5 D1 programs in the NE with St John’s Uconn, BC, Rhode Island. His going to Cortlandt is a step up from Post and no he cannot transfer to any D1 without having to sit out a year so he will be there for the duration unless he’s drafted after his Jr year.
You folks just look for any way to be confrontational. Is Seth the best player on the Rangers now? He’s going to the best baseball school of any of the present players.
Nick Comastro is a very good player also and proved it last year and the year before and the year before. He is not Zac
Is it true that Kennedy was pushed into the A Class?
Should have happened years ago when it was widely recognized that the coach was merging an area wide summer AAU team into a High School team that competed in Class B. Think of all the “real” Class B baseball kids/teams who got screwed by Section 1’s inability to see a fraud like this for so long.
I hope this true because it is along time coming, but can’t atone for the Section championships the real Class B teams might have earned.
Justice delayed is justice denied for many kids.
wah wah wah..all u haters just pissed cause kennedy beat ur team in the past get ovr it they were better and they won. stop complaining nd give them reconitiion the have a strong team every year
Exactly how many Kennedy players were on the Taconic Rangers this year? Answer the question before bashing the program. I bet there were more from Arlington than Kennedy. by the way, check out their new baseball field.
Fletcher recruited kids off the Kennedy championship team to play for the Rangers not the other way around. when those guys got to kennedy they were all on other summer teams. SOAC, Clippers, Kent sox etc
Everyone of those starters was on a full ride there too. Don’t think Fletcher got them to stay without paying them.
having seen both zach g. and Camastro play they are both very impressive. Zach is better with the bat and Nicks a better defensive player. Both help their teams in different ways. But I would say Nick is more VALUABLE to his team because it is hard to find a true SS.
Kennedy basketball was forced to move up just a few years ago and now, someone says, the baseball team will also be forced to move from class B to class A.
It only makes sense. Do not compare a catholic school that enrolls 600 students with a public school with 600 students. The public school has a very definitive small geographic area from where all the kids must live. The catholic school can draw talented athletes from 20 or miles away and really should be placed in sports divisions against AA teams.
With a good recruiting coach, offering free tuition, there is no reason that any catholic school should not be able to compete against the largest of public schools.
Kudos to Section 1 if they did in fact force Kennedy out of class B. Kennedy still should do well in class A with their competitive advantage and history of cherry picking some top players from other public school districts.
“offering free tuition”
no scholarships at kennedy of any kind sorry
My kid was offered free tuition at Briarcliff rather then go to Kennedy and pay $8000. I went to Kennedy and paid just to be with other “athletes” work hard and win. Tears on your pillows
Nothing about this post is about Kennedy so don’t talk about it. Let’s give our congrats to these boys instead
It’s disappointing that so many contributors to this blog feel the need to be so negative. It doesn’t take a degree in psychology to surmise that those who post nasty comments are either (1) bitter HS sports has-beens who are living through their sons’ baseball potential and accomplishments; (2) very insecure—to the extent that they have to lash out because they feel somehow threatened by the success or opinions of others; or (3) ignorant wussy bullies who post pointless, offensive, self-serving commentary only because they can hide behind their anonymity.
I read most of the above and do not see ANY negativity?
A few Rangers parents are debating who the top player on the team was a few years ago. That is not negative?
A few others expressed approval that Kennedy was moved to Class A in baseball as the basketball team was a few years ago? That is not negative.
This is a blog where all opinions count. Even if YOU happen to disagree with someone else. No one was nasty on this thread from what I can tell.
You’ve got a point, Bono: I should be more precise with my words. Let’s try “snide,” “argumentative,” “opinionated” (the actual definition of the word—not how it is incorrectly used by many), and, my personal favorite, “ignorant.”
Sonny…..Your personal favorite says it all. The definition of an “ignorant” person is someone who does not listen to other opinions.
There should be more banter out here on this baseball blog to flesh out the fakes and phonies.
The truth , in the end , usually comes to the surface, despite all the spinners and BS artists.
Whenever somebody states something as “fact”, someone else is entitled to agree or disagree with more “facts”.
I heard a rumor that the westchester clippers provide HGH to the kids who play for them,any truth to this?
I just came up with a complete lie to try and get the blog fired up but it didn’t work what’s goin on?
Huge Congrats to Nate Irving committing to UVA.
That boy worked his but off. Moved to Tenessee his Junior summer to play on a team.
Hard working kids whose passion and hard work never diminished.
Even when people told him he wasnt good enough for d1
Keep at it kids
HGH – nice try and funny. We are in midst of dead-air season now (basketball going strong, no more material baseball commitments) – be patient – baseball is only 10 weeks away…
And then all the braggers and haters will come out of their garages…
I think your blog is interesting I found it on Google. Definetely will return tomorrow! I am very exsiting about learning newthingsCheers, Whitney
