HARRISON, N.Y. – Harrison's Andrew Gurgitano and Daniel Klein will join players from Norwalk, New Canaan and Greenwich, Conn., on a Connecticut-based 13-year-old baseball team called The Warriors playing in the Triple Crown Sports National Championship in Myrtle Beach, S.C.
The Warriors, who have an overall record of 16-2 and won the Triple Crown Regional title in the Father's Day Classic last month, are among 64 teams from Georgia, New Jersey and Virginia that will vie from Friday through Wednesday for the Triple Crown title.
Nick Ballone, manager of the Warriors Baseball Club, said, “We feel good about our chances of making a strong showing in the national tournament, having just come off a successful tournament in New Jersey last weekend, where we won two games and tied one. Also, as the runner-up in the New York Elite League spring season, we understand what it is like to compete well in big games.”
Warriors from Greenwich include Bailey Ballone, Daniel Curley, Andrew D’Autilio, Erik Mini, Daniel Pastore and Marco Pastore. The New Canaan players are Alex Dolby and Troy Dunnam.
