On Tuesday night, the Verona 6th grade spring barnstormers entered in the highly competitive Old Bridge Annual Baseball Tournament. The tournament was comprised of teams from all over New Jersey and had many club-level teams involved. Verona went through the tournament undefeated and beat a club team from central New Jersey–The Jersey Boys–to win the championship.

The championship game was 0-0 through the first three innings until the Jersey Boys scored two runs in the top of the fourth inning. Verona started the bottom of the fifth trailing 2-0 until Robert Coppola got a huge home run blast over the left center field fence. Verona then added four more runs in the bottom of the fifth to take a 5-2 lead.

In the last inning the Jersey Boys were able to get the bases loaded with no outs, but Sal Vassallo went on to retire the next three batters to secure the victory. Steven Priscoe started and pitched a super game.
