Croton-Harmon coach Eric Rosen
How many years have you been coaching with your school? This will be my first.
How did the team do last season? Last season the team finished under .500. The team lost in the first round of the Class B playoffs to Briarcliff.
Who are your top returning players? Dennis Traditi, Sr. (SS/P); Tyler Bello, Sr. (P/1B/OF); Brian Oliver, Sr. (C/3B/P); Brian Soares, Jr. (OF).
Who are the top players that you lost to graduation? Greg Carroll (P/2B), Kevin Soares (1B), Kyle Raum (P).
What is your team’s biggest strength? We have 15 hungry ball players who play the game hard. Our intense style of play along with our team defense and pitching will keep us in every game this year.
What is your biggest concern entering the season? Inexperience at the varsity level. We only have four players with varsity experience.
Which team(s) is your biggest rival? We play in a very competitive league with state runner-up Briarcliff, Ossining, Westlake, and Pleasantville. We also play our next door neighbors Hen Hud at Peekskill Stadium on May 5 at 7 p.m., which should be fun for the community.
Opening game: At Rye Neck on Tuesday, April 10 at 4:30 p.m. after returning from Vero Beach, Fla. for spring training.
