The Manhasset Varsity Baseball Team had an unforgettable, record-breaking season this Spring.

After the regular season in Nassau County Conference A-II, the Indians were 11-7, under the coaching of Brian Corbo and Chris Keen.  This qualified them to move on to the playoffs, where the team was far from completing its run.

They started strong, with a 4-1 win against No. 4 Carey.  Then, they took on Seaford, and achieved another solid finish, this time 4-0.

Recorded in interviews on MSG Varsity after beating Seaford, Joe Enea called the team “a dangerous pack of dogs.”  Tim Curtis added that they were “road warriors,” facing many opponents at away games.  It is clear that the team has a unique bond and a confident, work hard mentality.  The video is available at:  http://www.msgvarsity.com/highlights-manhasset-4-seaford-0-05-18-15-1.1711720

Next, the Indians played Floral Park.  They would need one win to advance, while Floral Park would have to win twice in order to proceed.  After an initial close 6-7 loss, the Manhasset team became only more motivated upon its return, the next day, to Alva T. Stanforth Sports Complex.  The determination and will to succeed translated into a 10-9 win.  Manhasset would move on to the Semifinals, where they would be taking on Division Avenue High School in Levittown.

Division (16-2) was understood to be a tough opponent, ranked number one in the county.  The Indians had lost to them three times in the regular season.  Now in playoffs, they would be playing a best of three series.  Away at Division, Manhasset lost game 1 of the series 14-11.  During the game the team made two significant comebacks, but they were still behind at the end in the seventh inning.  Back at home, they won game 2 behind Tim Curtis on the mound, 4-3.  Upon their return to Division, however, they lost the final game 3-1, in an intense match-up.  Defense and pitching were strong on both sides, as shown by the low final scores.

The 2015 Manhasset Baseball Team, led by captains Peter Cybriwsky, Tim Curtis, Joe Enea, and David Spampinato, recorded the best season in Manhasset history.  They have put the the program back on the map with some of Long Island’s most elite programs.

The team will graduate 11 dedicated, impactful seniors this year, including Cybriwsky, Enea, Spampinato, Curtis, Geoffrey Langner, Tommy Polcari, Dylan Creeden, Anthony Vieto, Benny Ingenito, Ryan Delaney, and Alex Anderson.  Key players Giovanelli, Weiss, Dreyer, Catalfo, and Santella are expected to lead the team next year, building upon the legacy those 11 have created.
