  • HS Baseball news & game updates

    Anything about High School baseball goes here. Prized players looking for college, scores & updates, draft info, let's hear it out there!

    If you hear of info such as coaching changes, new facilities where the games will be played, division titles, please post one and all into this thread!

    From NYC, here's some local news:


    Led by pitcher Dawin Rivas, Monroe has held
    opponents to three runs, while notching 26
    of their own on offense this postseason.



    Angel Castillo and No. 8 Lincoln knock off
    Madison in playoffs last week.



    If Nico Rivera is sent to the mound on Tuesday,
    he will look to do what few pitchers have done
    this season: limit Monroe's offense.


    Lincoln looks to dethrone city's kings
    Upstart 'Splitters eager to challenge champion Monroe

    Just thinking about beating the Monroe Eagles can be a daunting task.

    The defending PSAL champion and top-seeded Eagles haven't lost a league game since May 31, 2005, and they're currently No. 6 in USA Today's Super 25 ranking of the nation's high school baseball teams.

    Add that to the fact that Monroe coach Mike Turo has more than 800 wins; his offense has scored at least six runs in 15-of-16 games this season; and Monroe ace Dawin Rivas has allowed only one earned run this year ... and facing the Eagles just might seem nightmarish.

    Nevertheless, that's the feat No. 8 Lincoln will be looking to accomplish when the Railsplitters face Monroe in the PSAL quarterfinals at George Washington on Tuesday.

    Lincoln edged Madison, 4-3, at home in the second round last Friday, becoming the last Brooklyn team left standing. Still, the Railsplitters know how big a task it will be to compete with the Eagles.

    "Monroe is one of the best programs in the country, but we can't get intimidated," Lincoln coach Frank Sommo said. "We're playing with house money now. We're in the penthouse in Las Vegas just enjoying our time and waiting to see what else they could throw at us. We're rolling the dice here."

    The Railsplitters will have to find a way to crack Rivas. Though he stands only 5-5, Rivas pitches big. The sophomore has used excellent location and a solid fastball to stifle hitters all season.

    Zionsville pitcher flourishes
    With yearly growth, Miller blossoms into hard-throwing starter

    Matt Miller openly acknowledges the term "late bloomer" applies to him.

    His teammates have had another name for him as well.

    "We called him 'Gumby,' " Zionsville High School senior pitcher Tyler Reimer said. "I swear that kid grew an inch every day. Every time you saw him, he grew again.

    "There are kids walking around 5-foot-4 because he stole all their height."

    As a freshman, Miller was a 6-foot point guard on the basketball team. By the time he was a senior, he was a 6-6, 210-pound center.

    His real development, though, came in baseball, where he became a hard-throwing right-hander who recently signed with two-time Big Ten champion Michigan.

    Miller's emergence as a complement to No. 1 starter Reimer helped the Zionsville baseball team advance to the regional for the second consecutive year.

    "I almost categorize Tyler and Matt as 1A and 1B," said Zionsville coach Darrell Osborne, whose Eagles (19-12) host Class 4A No. 3 Kokomo (25-3) at 7 p.m. today in one of 32 regionals around the state.

    "Tyler has had a great career, but I have as much confidence in Matt as I do in Tyler. And Tyler has as much confidence in Matt as he does in himself, and Matt has as much confidence in Tyler as he has in himself."

    Miller played junior varsity baseball as a sophomore, moving to the varsity as a junior. But the summer of 2006 didn't provide a lot of opportunity on the mound.

      By Richard Morris, Seton Hall Prep
      Pitcher Evan Danieli joins teammates Rick
      Porcello and Steven Brooks as selections for
      this year's All-American game in Albuquerque.
      Seton Hall Prep (West Orange, N.J.) is the first
      school to have three players chosen.


      Seton Hall Prep sends 3 to All-American game
      Steven Brooks calls his selection to the 2007 All-American Baseball Game "extra special, because I'll be playing with two of my friends."
      Brooks' friends are right-handed pitchers Rick Porcello and Evan Danieli, teammates at Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, N.J.

      The trio is expected to play for the East squad June 4 (FSN, 9 p.m. ET) in Albuquerque in the fifth all-star game involving 40 of the nation's elite players.

      "For three players from New Jersey to play in the game is great for the state, but all three from the same school is an honor," says Brooks, a speedy center fielder who signed with top-seeded Wake Forest.

      It's the first time three players were selected from the same school.

      Provided Seton Hall Prep, top-ranked in USA TODAY's Super 25 baseball rankings, isn't competing for a state championship, Brooks says he'll suit up for the game in Albuquerque.

      "The high school team is No. 1, and it's our goal to be playing for a state title on June 10," he said.

      The game features six players whose fathers played in the major leagues: Craig Gullickson of Cardinal Newman (West Palm Beach, Fla.); Glen Johnson of South Fork (Stuart, Fla.); Bobby Buckner of Boise; Chance Ruffin of Lake Travis (Austin); Matt Scioscia of Crespi (Encino, Calif.); and Brett Krill of Aliso Niguel (Aliso Viejo, Calif.).

      Scioscia's father, Mike, is the manager of the Los Angeles Angels.
      Baseball Super 25: six teams enter rankings
      Crowned: Ten teams in the Super 25 baseball rankings won state championships, including seven in the South Region. In a big shakeup, six teams enter the rankings, with No. 11 Sarasota (Fla.) making the biggest jump after winning Florida's 6A title. No. 24 Oakland (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) plummets 22 spots after a season-ending loss in the Class AAA playoffs. No. 1 Seton Hall Prep (West Orange, N.J.) lost a league game, but maintains the top spot.
      Pitcher of the week: Right-hander Alex Wimmers of Moeller (Cincinnati) has allowed one earned run in his last three starts, including a 14-strikeout perfect game in a 6-0 win vs. Vandalia (Ohio) Butler. Wimmers (6-2, 185 pounds), who signed with Ohio State, recently had a run of 26 innings without a walk. For the season, he is 8-0 with a 0.56 ERA and has struck out 77 in 50 innings.

      Player of the week: 1B-P Rick Porcello of Seton Hall Prep (West Orange, N.J.) might be the nation's top pitcher but his hitting is earning notice. During a recent tear, the North Carolina-bound recruit went 4-for-7 with three home runs and 10 RBI. For the season, he is batting .479 with nine homers and 44 RBI and has a 7-0 record with a 0.71 ERA.

      Games of the week: No. 19 Moeller (Cincinnati) vs. St. Xavier (Cincinnati) at the University of Cincinnati's Marge Schott Stadium Thursday in the Division I regional semifinals. Moeller (27-3), Greater Cincinnati Catholic League South regular-season champion, has won 12 in a row but split two games this season with its league rival. … Friday, No. 13 Wilson (Long Beach) hosts El Modena (Orange) in the CIF-Southern Section Division quarterfinals. The sectional final is June 1 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

        Randolph, Steinert face tests in semis
        While it may be assumed that Steinert, No. 4 in The Star-Ledger Top 20, and No. 7 Randolph are on a collision course to meet in the NJSIAA Group 4 final on Saturday, each first must deal with one of the hottest teams in the state when the eight public group semifinals are contested 4 p.m. today at neutral sites.

        The four Non-Public sectional finals also will be played, setting up the six group championships, four public and two non-public, Saturday in Toms River.

        Randolph opposes No. 18 Edison, which makes its Top 20 debut, today at Demarest. Steinert, the Hamilton school that defeated Randolph in the Group 4 final last June, runs into a Washington Township (18-11) team coming off a stunning 15-1 victory over then-No. 10 Toms River North.

        Randolph will need all of its weapons against an Edison squad that has won 14 of its last 15. Randolph hit six homers in an 11-9, eight-inning victory over Bloomfield in the North Jersey, Section 2, Group 4 final. Rob Kral hit four of those home runs.

        What looked like a ho-hum season for Middlesex County is shaping up as one to remember with No. 15 Spotswood, in Central Jersey, Group 2, and Middlesex, in Central Jersey, Group 1, winning sectional titles. Unranked St. Joseph's (15-12) of Metuchen faces No. 5 Christian Brothers Academy of Lincroft at Mercer County Park in West Windsor for the South Jersey, Non-Public A championship.

        Cranford's 5-4 victory over West Morris of Long Valley in North Jersey, Section 2, Group 3, gave the Union County school its fifth sectional title in eight years under coach Dennis McCaffery, who has produced a 189-62 record in nine seasons.

        Christian Brothers will run the gauntlet this week. Today it faces St. Joseph's of Metuchen in the South Jersey, Non-Public A final, tomorrow it takes on Colts Neck in the Shore Conference Tournament final and Thursday meets Wall in the Monmouth County Tournament final.

        Seton Hall Prep's Rick Porcello, the Gatorade National Player of the Year, allowed 12 hits, including two homers and six earned runs, in Seton Hall's 9-8 victory over Don Bosco Prep in the North Jersey, Non-Public A semifinals Friday.
        Don Bosco Prep 7 (27-2), Old Tappan 2 (25-8)
        Don Bosco Prep, No. 2 in The Star-Ledger Top 20, never had the chance to mourn its one-run loss to No. 1 Seton Hall Prep on Friday, not with the Bergen County Tournament semifinals looming the next day.

        "We had to re-focus," junior first baseman Steve Proscia said. "I had the confidence we would."

        The team did exactly that, as Proscia cracked a two-run home run in the top of the first inning to ignite a 7-2 victory over Old Tappan that gave Don Bosco Prep its second straight Bergen County Tournament championship yesterday in Demarest.

        Proscia, who hit three home runs in the tournament, was named the BCT's Most Valuable Player for Don Bosco, which advanced to the final with a 6-3 victory over Emerson Boro on Saturday.

        Don Bosco tacked on a run in the second inning and two each in the third and fourth to build a 7-1 lead as junior right-hander Mike Dennhardt (9-0) threw a six-hitter and faced just four batters over the minimum in a tidy, 87-pitch effort. He struck out five and walked none.

        Don Bosco Prep let a 7-2 lead slip away in a 9-8 loss to Seton Hall Prep on Friday in the NJSIAA North Jersey, Non-Public A semifinals, derailing its bid for the school's first Star-Ledger Top 20 Trophy in baseball.

        "It just kills you," Dennhardt said. "I was on the bench and wanted to get in there to pitch, but I was out of innings."

        Dennhardt got the victory when Don Bosco defeated St. Joseph of Montvale in the quarterfinals three days earlier.

          Spotswood wins crown, 7-6, behind Collins, Spina, Beard
          Forty-eight hours ago, Spotswood had never won a baseball tournament on the state or conference level.

          Now, Spotswood has two championships.

          With a prom neatly wedged between the games, Spotswood followed up its NJSIAA/Star-Ledger Central Jersey, Group 2 title Friday afternoon with its first county championship yesterday.

          Mike Collins and Phil Spina drove in two runs apiece and Will Beard quelled a J.P. Stevens uprising in the seventh inning to hang on for his 11th victory and give top-seeded Spotswood a 7-6 victory over J.P. Stevens for the Greater Middlesex Conference Tournament championship at East Brunswick Tech.

          Spotswood (23-4), which defeated Somerville two days ago for the state sectional title, was appearing in just its second county final, the other in 2001. J.P. Stevens (14-12), the 11th seed, was making its first title-game appearance in 19 years.

          After Beard (11-1) had allowed just one hit in 14 previous innings in the tournament, J.P. Stevens came out swinging against the Rutgers-bound right-hander, gaining a 3-1 lead by the fifth inning on the strength of John Stillitano's two-run homer in the third inning and Anthony Montalbano's solo home run to deep right-center in the fifth.

          "In warmups I seemed all right," Beard said. "But my curve just wasn't there. I got hit a little bit, but we came back."

          J.P. Stevens right-hander Doug Wislinski (6-4), after two arduous but scoreless innings, sailed through the third and fourth innings and, at one point, retired eight batters in a row. But, with one out in the fifth, Mike Hohman walked and Anthony Addone and John Berner followed with looping singles to drive in a run. Two wild pitches followed, tying the game at 3-3.

            Baltimore-area Calvert Hall College HS pulled off an unprecedented feat this year -- every level of their program went undefeated. Led by Metro-area Player of the Year, junior 3B/RP Kevin Lingerman as well as All-Metro first-teamers SS Patrick Blair, CF Reid Chenworth, and 1B Jeff Guthridge, as well as second-team SP Mike Dillon, the varsity squad capped a 33-0 season with a triumph over Mount St. Joseph, a school with three alumni currently playing in the pros, most notably Mark Teixeira, in the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) A Conference finals at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen.

            Player of the Year
            Kevin Lingerman, Calvert Hall

            Playing third base and pitching, Lingerman led the Cardinals to a record-setting 33-0 season that included a third straight Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title.

            A 5-foot-9, 160-pound junior, he batted .390 with an area-leading 47 RBIs, which ranks fourth in state history for a season. On the mound, Lingerman was 7-0 with four saves and a 1.49 ERA in 47 innings, striking out 53, walking 15 and giving up 36 hits.

            "Kevin was very consistent in everything he did for us, " coach Lou Eckerl said. "There is no question that he played a major part in our going 33-0. He's the only player who was also on the 2005 team that went 31-1. He started at shortstop as a freshman."

            Batting third in the Cardinals' powerful lineup, Lingerman had 39 hits in 100 at-bats, scored 26 runs, was second on the team in doubles with 11, and had two triples and three homers. He also had a team-leading five sacrifice flies.

            In a nonleague contest with one of Northern Virginia's top teams, Notre Dame Academy, Lingerman pitched a no-hitter with five strikeouts and had an RBI single in the fifth for a 1-0 victory that kept the team's winning streak intact.

            Lingerman, whose father, Nemo Lingerman, pitched at Patterson High and later in the Minnesota Twins organization, notched a save in the Cardinals' 9-6 victory over Archbishop Spalding in the MIAA A Conference playoffs. He then stopped Mount St. Joseph, 9-2, on a six-hitter in another playoff game.

            Coach of the Year
            Lou Eckerl, Calvert Hall

            After leading the Cardinals to a Maryland-record 31-1 season in 2005, it didn't seem likely that Eckerl could top that. This season, however, Eckerl guided the Cardinals to a 33-0 season, setting state records for most wins and most consecutive wins in a single season. Top-ranked Calvert Hall won its third straight Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title.

            Also, the entire baseball program that Eckerl oversees went an unprecedented 75-0, as the junior varsity (26-0) and the freshman team (16-0) both won MIAA titles, too.

            "I feel really blessed and humble," said Eckerl, who has led the Cardinals to a 91-8 record over the past three seasons and has been named Metro Coach of the Year twice during that span. "This team was really dedicated to winning. I am amazed we have accomplished this feat. We have great kids and great coaches here. We've also been lucky in a lot of senses."

            The Cardinals hit every morning at 7 a.m. before the start of school at 8:30, and after school, they were back on the baseball field. The players lauded Eckerl, who has also been the school's athletic director for 25 years, and the coaching staff.

            Eckerl is 151-40 (.791) in six seasons at Calvert Hall and also coached his alma mater, Cardinal Gibbons, in the early 1980s, winning the 1982 A Conference title and going 49-14 (.778). That gives him an overall record of 200-54 (.787).

            First Team
            Patrick Blair
            Calvert Hall
            A two-year starter as a sophomore, Blair possesses the poise and skills of a seasoned senior. He set the table for the hard-hitting Cardinals as their leadoff man, while anchoring the infield at shortstop.

            Blair led the area's top team in batting with a .534 average, with a state-record 58 runs scored. His 55 hits are the second-highest total for a single-season in state history, trailing the 62 by Archbishop Curley's Mike Costello in 1999.

            In addition, Blair, who only struck out five times, led the team in slugging percentage (.874) and had 15 doubles, four triples, four homers and 31 RBIs. Blair also led the Cardinals in stolen bases with 28 in 34 attempts. His on-base percentage was .606. Defensively, Blair had a .917 fielding percentage, making six errors in 73 chances while showing a lot of range and a strong arm.

            Reid Chenworth
            Calvert Hall
            Headed to the University of Maryland on a baseball scholarship, Chenworth closed his varsity career in strong fashion, batting .483 while making only one error in 30 chances in center field.

            Chenworth, a sweet-swinging left-hander who is 6-foot-5 and 225 pounds, had 43 hits in 89 at-bats while drawing a club-leading 31 walks. The No. 2 hitter in the batting order, Chenworth scored 49 runs, drove in 34 and had eight doubles, two triples, four homers and 25 stolen bases in 26 attempts. His knack for clutch hits kept the Cardinals' run to an unprecedented 33-0 season going on several occasions. One of his most notable hits was a grand slam against Mount St. Joseph in a 10-4 regular-season victory.

            Jeff Guthridge
            Calvert Hall
            Guthridge emerged as one of the metro area's most feared cleanup batters with his .432 average, eight doubles, five triples, four homers and 39 RBIs. The Hofstra-bound right-hander also scored 36 runs and stole 12 bases while drawing 22 walks.

            His consistent power-hitting prevented opponents from pitching around No. 3 hitter and Player of the Year Kevin Lingerman. Guthridge completed what was the area's top hitting foursome, which produced 151 RBIs, 42 doubles, 13 triples and 15 homers.

            The slick-fielding first baseman committed only three errors in 169 chances for a .982 fielding percentage. He was adept at digging throws out of the dirt and used his 6-foot-3 frame and long arms to stretch close plays.

            Calvert Hall's baseball team is 30-0.

            Add the junior varsity (23-0) and freshman-sophomore team (13-0), and the program is 66-0 and each team is headed to the playoffs. The feat is unprecedented in the area.

            Advertisement
            "The joke around school is who will be the first to lose," said coach Lou Eckerl, whose team won five games in five days for the second time this season.

            "We don't want it to be us."

            The top-ranked Cardinals got No. 30 yesterday with a 5-1 win at No. 4 Archbishop Spalding, as Kevin Lingerman (6-0) went the distance on a seven-hitter with seven strikeouts and two walks on 107 pitches.

            Steve Brinkley homered for Spalding's run leading off the bottom of the fifth.

            "Yeah, I tired a little bit in the fifth, but my team got behind me," Lingerman said. "They started rooting for me, and I heard them. They boosted me up in the sixth and seventh innings. To be 30-0 is great."

            Calvert Hall scored all of its runs in the first two innings, with Jeff Guthridge, who was 2-for-3, getting an RBI in each inning. The Cavaliers (25-8) dropped from second to fourth in the seedings for the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference playoffs that start Monday.

            The Cardinals, who are 18-0 in the league, took the top seed and No. 11 Loyola (16-8, 12-6) the second seed. Both have first-round byes on Monday.

            Calvert Hall will host the winner of fifth-seeded Cardinal Gibbons (9-11, 8-10) at fourth-seeded Spalding at 4 p.m. Loyola will play the winner of No. 6 seed Mount St. Joseph (14-13, 8-10) at No. 3 seed St. Paul's (17-11, 12-6).

            The double-elimination tournament culminates with the finals on May 23 at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen. If an extra game is needed, it would be the next day at Ripken Stadium.

            Calvert Hall hopes to finish 33-0 with a third straight A Conference title, matching the 1993-1995 teams.

            "This team wants to break that record the 2005 team set," Eckerl said. "Our guys are excited about trying to break the two-year-old record of 31, and they know they are in reach of going 33-0."

            The 2005 team lost its season opener before going on to finish 31-1, setting state records for wins and consecutive wins in a season.

            "We hit at 7 a.m. in the gym every morning before school starts at 8:25 a.m., and it's worth it," Guthridge said.

            The perfect season -- one like no other in Maryland high school baseball history -- is complete.

            No. 1 Calvert Hall completed an unbeaten season, believed to be the first in the storied program's history, by beating Mount St. Joseph, 4-0, last night at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen to finish 33-0 and 75-0 as a program.

            Advertisement
            The victory gave the varsity its third consecutive Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association A Conference title and its 15th since 1976, including the old Maryland Scholastic Association that became the MIAA.

            The Cardinals' junior varsity went 26-0, winning the A Conference title, and the freshman-sophomore team was 16-0, capturing the B Conference championship.

            "I really thought about it a lot coming into this game today and I feel really blessed and a little humble," said Calvert Hall coach Lou Eckerl. "To think how big of an accomplishment this was. One game could have taken it all away."

            Eckerl said he checked with Cardinals old-timers and former coach Joe "Snooky" Binder, whom Eckerl succeeded, and nobody remembers an undefeated Cardinals team despite all the championships.

            Mount St. Joseph (17-15) lost to the Cardinals, 12-2, in the final in 2005, the year Calvert Hall finished 31-1, winning 31 in a row. That record was broken this season, but the Gaels tried to be that "one game" last night.

                Here's a contribution to the High School Baseball thread. The forty (40) high school games listed below are the only ones lasting 20 or more innings discovered SO FAR during 44 years of research, listed by U.S. state or territory, and by nation (such games have been found in Japan and Taiwan). After the high school list, I have listed the six (6) such American Legion games found so far.

                I am positive that I am MISSING MANY such games from the list because high school games get so little media coverage.

                Do you know of any games OMITTED from the list, or any errors, or any of the missing info? If so, could you please let me know and share with this thread's readers.

                For 36 states or territories, we have so far NOT found any games lasting 20 or more innings. Do you know the longest high school game in any of these states or territories in terms of innings played?

                Thank you very much.

                  Here's a second contribution to the High School Baseball thread. The six (6) games listed below are the only GRAMMAR SCHOOL and JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL baseball games so far discovered to have lasted 20 or more innings.

                  First, concerning the GRAMMAR SCHOOL games. I have always wondered whether these three grammar school games were ACTUALLY high school level games, with the schools simply using the terms "grammar school" and "high school" interchangeably, or whether these are actually games between elementary schools enrolling grades Kindergarten through sixth, or ages 5 to 12? Although no elementary schools have baseball teams now, I think they did back in the first three decades of the Twentieth Century when these games were played (1907, 1908, 1923).

                  Secondly, concerning the JUNIOR HIGH SCHOOL games. I have always wondered whether the terms "junior high school" and "high school" are used interchangeably, or whether these are actually games between junior high schools in Japan enrolling grades 7-9, or age 13-15?

                  Do you know of any games OMITTED from the list, or any errors, or any of the missing info? If so, could you please let me know and share with this thread's readers.

                    Ed "Faa" Ford is the Assistant Director of Recreation in Jersey City, NJ (in Hudson County), and is highly knowledgeable on Hudson County's baseball and softball stars. Here's his Dream Team, a 6-page article of young men and young women, as published in Saturday's Jersey Journal (with headshots of the players and Ford in the printed version only).

                    HS BASEBALL & SOFTBALL
                    The Faa's Dream Team

                    No one knows Hudson County baseball and softball like Ed "The Faa" Ford. The one-of-a-kind Hudson County fixture has been watching the current crop of diamond stars since they were swinging away in the peewee leagues. So, we asked our favorite guru who he thought the best of the best are right now. Here's the 2009 edition of his Dream Team.

                    MARC HANNA, ST. PETER'S PREP

                    Hanna was a critical piece of a St. Peter's Prep team that won nine of its final 10 games, including a 7-4 victory over top-seeded Memorial in the HCIAA Coviello Championship game. Hanna pitched seven innings and struck out three Memorial batters to give Prep coach Joe Urbanovich his sixth Coviello title. Hanna personified the role of ace, as he finished the year with a 8-1 record and a 1.49 ERA.

                    MATT KACZMAR, ST. PETER'S PREP

                    While Hanna anchored the St. Peter's pitching staff, Kaczmar was a key component of the Marauders offense. He hit .412, scored 28 runs and swiped 24 bases.

                    TOM McGUCKIN, BAYONNE

                    A four year starter for the Bees, McGuckin hit .386 and led the team in doubles, triples and home runs. Bayonne's stellar shortstop will play for Cecil College in Maryland next year.

                    JAMES YOUNG, BAYONNE

                    The William Paterson-bound Young picked up five wins on the mound for Bayonne, including two victories against Coviello champion St. Peter's Prep. Young had a 2.70 ERA and averaged more than a strikeout per inning pitched, while also batting cleanup for the Bees.

                      First, concerning the GRAMMAR SCHOOL games. I have always wondered whether these three grammar school games were ACTUALLY high school level games, with the schools simply using the terms "grammar school" and "high school" interchangeably, or whether these are actually games between elementary schools enrolling grades Kindergarten through sixth, or ages 5 to 12? Although no elementary schools have baseball teams now, I think they did back in the first three decades of the Twentieth Century when these games were played (1907, 1908, 1923).

                      GRAMMAR SCHOOLS

                      28 innings – Dorchester Franklin Field Diamond #5, Boston, Massachusetts – 6/8/1907 – Boston League Championship Game – Henry L. Pierce Grammar School of Dorchester 4 Bennet Grammar School of Brighton 3 in 5:50 – finished at 3:50 PM.

                      20 innings – Dorchester Franklin Field, Boston, Massachusetts – 4/25/1908 – Boston League – Lauriat Grammar School of Dorchester 5 Norfolk Grammar School of Dorchester 4.
                      I don't recognize any of the names of the Dorchester, MA grammar schools. I taught in that school district for a few years and worked in several of the elementary schools. I think the schools back then may have been K-6 or K-8 and these "championship" games might have been similar to the Little League program of today.

                      As a kid I recall Franklin Field had a zoo and several ball fields on it.

                        It was an honor for me this year to work the Hudson County Championship game between St. Peter's Prep and Marist. The tournament is now named for "The Faa" who died a year or two ago. That's me on the right, and we are wearing black wrist bands in honor of "The Faa."

                          Do you know of any games OMITTED from the list, or any errors, or any of the missing info? If so, could you please let me know and share with this thread's readers.

                          I looked up Henry L. Pierce Grammer School and noted that in the early 1900's in Boston they had Primary Schools for Grades 1 through 3, Grammar Schools for Grades 4 through 9, and High Schools for, I assume, Grades 10 through 12. The only males working at Pierce Grammar School were the principal/headmaster and the janitor. I wonder which one coached the baseball team? ;-)

                            This is where I last enjoyed fame on the baseball field--my high school park as seen from the air. This park was bigger than some of the Major League Stadiums of the time. It was 422 to dead center, 320 to left, and 318 to right. The power alleys were shorter thanks to the rectangle instead of the curve.

                            Yours truly once pitched a complete 7-inning game and won even though I gave up 9 earned runs. We won 14-11. I hit two doubles and a triple and stole home. I also gave up a homer that cleared the centerfield fence. The guy that hit it later became the starting quarterback and Vanderbilt as well as an All-SEC baseball player. He made it to the Minors before injuries ended his career--Mike Wright. My high school teammate, Barry Burton, went on to Vanderbilt as well and made All-SEC as a punter/tight end.Hillsboro High Baseball Field.JPG
