2016 Blind Brook Trojans
Coach — Adam Massi
How many years have you been coaching at your current school? This is my third year.
How did your team fare last season? 14-7. Lost to Dobbs Ferry in the first round of Class B sectionals.
Who are your top players that you lost to graduation? P.J. Cambriello, Brandon Forrester, Conner Barrella.
Who are your key returning players? Max Picker (Sr., P/SS), Brandon Hamlet (Sr., 3B) and Justin Moross (Sr., P/OF).
How do you feel about your pitcher entering the season? The top of our rotation is strong. We will have a number of players fighting for inning on the back end.
Your lineup? We are a team that will need to put the ball in play and pressure the defense. The key will be getting runners in from scoring position with less than two outs.
Your defense? The defense will be extremely important in winning games. With a high-powered offense, it is key to minimize mistakes on defense.
How would you describe your philosophy on how the game should be played? Play every pitch like it’s your last. Don’t make excuses when things go wrong. Leave everything on the field.
How would you assess your team’s chances this season? With commitment and hard work throughout the season, we should be able to compete with anyone.
When is your opening game? April 1st, home against Croton.
