The Amity Spartans Baseball team has had a strong start to the 2017 season. On April 3 they beat Cheshire 1-0 on the Rams’ home field.

Their first home game was against Shelton on April 5, which they won 6-3.

The Spartans broke Fairfield Prep’s 4 game winning streak in Fairfield, with a 3-2 victory on April 10.

Amity squashed Xavier at Palmer Field 12-4 on April 12.

Many of the players have been on the team through the last three state championship games, and if they make it all the way this year, they will graduate knowing they helped make history.

The 2017 roster includes:

Seniors — Andy Hague, SS (#12); Adam Hurwitz, OF, (#2); Christian Cooper, 2B (#3); Matthew Sabitsky, IF/P (#4), Teddy Hague, OF/P (#7) who is heading to Yale next year; Colin Beaulieu, OF (#11); Rohan Patel, P/3B (#18); Max Scheps, P/3B (#21); Joshua Crow, C (#24); Chase Burzynski, OF (#25); and Alec Smith, C/DH (#29).

Juniors — Jack Balocca, C/OF (#8); Jacob Knies, P (#13); Edward Criscuolo, OF (#16); Benjamin Bodewick, P (#17); Quinnian Burke, 1B (#19); Jared Smith, OF (#20); John Nolan, 1B (#22), Quentin Pitter, OF (#23); Michael Ficaro, P (#27); Zachary Cole, 3B (#28); and Patrick Winkel, C (#30).

Sophomores — John Lumpinski, P (#10) and Sebastian Formica, LF (#26)

If you would like to see these awesome athletes in action, they have a home game against Staples at 2 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday, April 15).

The next home game after that is on Monday, April 17 at 4 p.m. when they host Daniel Hand.

After going on the road for three games, the Spartans will be back in Woodbridge on Wednesday, April 26 at 4 p.m. and Fairfield Prep will have a chance to redeem themselves.
