It’s the busiest day of the year, so I hope you guys are ready for some baseball. Since the White Plains-Scarsdale game will be starting at 2 (WP has its prom tonight), I’ll be getting an early start at a game that will have plenty of intrigue. The Tigers are the clear favorite as the 2-seed, but one of their four losses this season came against the Raiders. The pitcher that day was Scarsdale ace Jacob Aboodi, who I’m hearing should get the ball today. From there, I’ll be shooting up to Mahopac to see the Indians take on Mamaroneck in another Class AA first round matchup. That one could be the pitching matchup of the day, with two All-Section pitchers (Kevin Kernan for Pac and Will Hofmann for Mamo) likely going at it.
