In my humble opinion, today has the potential to be the most exciting day of the 2016 regular season. As you scroll down, just consider all of the high stakes rivalry games. With so many quality games to choose from, I recruited some help for the day.
Josh Thomson, AKA the Varsity Insider, will be heading to Rockland County to cover the battle of the Clarkstowns. As for me, I’ll be checking out a rematch of last year’s Class A final between Byram Hills and Rye. If you like pitching, that has the potential to be the match-up of the year. Both aces — Byram’s Frankie Vesuvio and Rye’s George Kirby — are fully rested. They’ve never pitched in the same game, but could today be the day? Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
