Boys Varsity Baseball Team: Elated team celebrates recent Long Island championship win against Commack High School

The Massapequa High School Baseball team won the Long Island Class AA baseball championship against Commack High School.

The game—played at St. Joseph’s College in Patchogue on June 3—was incredibly intense, with both teams fighting for the win.

The Chiefs, who had a record of 22-6, squared off against Commack High School’s team, the Cougars, who had a record of 22-4. With both teams nearly evenly matched, it was sure to be a hardfought game.

MHS took the lead in the top of the second, making the score 1-0. Then Commack came back in the bottom of the inning to tie it.

Massapequa was able to take three runs in the third, bringing the score up to 4-1. It took until the fifth inning for Commack to tie the score once again.

But Massapequa was able to break this tie, ending the game off with an 8-4 win.

“[It was a] [g]reat team win last night vs. Commack HS at St. Joseph’s sports complex in Patchogue,” Baseball coach Tom Sheedy said. “The Chiefs played very determined baseball with many players contributing big hits and strong defensive plays. All 29 team members are deserving LI champions.”

The Chiefs advance to the state championship semi-finals on June 9 at Maine Endwell High School near Binghamton. If they win, they will advance to the finals, at the NYSEG Stadium in Binghamton.

Editor’s note: The team won the first game of states on June 9, but lost to Liverpool on June 10.
