Manhasset varsity baseball is a team to watch this spring. After being selected Nassau County Coach of the Year and bringing our Varsity team to their very first Conference Championship last year, Coach Corbo is taking the sport in Manhasset to a higher level.
Captain of the team, Lukas Pracher, is committed to Davidson for baseball and is definitely a player to watch. The team has 10 returning seniors, several juniors and four sophomores have been brought up.
On April 27, starting at 9:45 a.m., we are proud to announce our second annual Triple Play Classic, a day to celebrate baseball and softball in Manhasset as well as to recognize the accomplishments of our graduating seniors. The festivities start with the parents’ first pitch followed by high school baseball and softball games, seniors’ ceremony, PAL clinics and games and more.
It will also be a special day, as we are playing Long Beach High, that unfortunately, during the Superstorm Sandy, lost their gym, fields and equipment and we will be awarding them with a check for $1,000 to help them put their program back together.
We are looking forward to an amazing season and to bring home another championship for Manhasset. Our season starts on April 1 and continues until May 7.
