Babe Ruth "A" Team Completes Another Successful Season
The Farmingdale Baseball League's 18 and under "A" travel team that plays in the Nassau Babe Ruth League ended their 2000 season in early August as the runner-up team in the County Championship playoff tournament. This was the second year in succession that the team has finished the tournament in the runner-up position. In fact, the team has been in the season ending playoff championships 7 years in a row. No other Babe Ruth team in any division can equal or even come close to this successful run. During this streak Tom Sabellico managed the team for the first 5 years, winning 3 championships, and for the past 2 years the team was managed by George Koch, finishing runner-up both years. The team started play back in May, as a very senior team, as 13 of the players are 18 and playing in their last year of eligibility under the league's banner.
