With a memorable season comes memorable hardware, as the Sandwich Post 188 American Legion baseball team found out this week.
After posting an unblemished record in District 10 regular season play and going unbeaten in the District 10 tournament, Post 188 entered the state tournament as the only undefeated team in the field. Though they lost in the semifinals, the team held their heads high for not only winning the second-straight District 10 title, but doing so in dominating fashion.
Corner infielder and pitcher Tyler Wudyka (Sandwich, St. Anselm’s) comfortably secured the necessary votes to win the D10 Player of the Year honors while closer Joe Dorman (St. John Paul II, Anna Maria) was named the D10 Pitcher of the Year.
Joining the two on the D10 All-Star team were outfielder Chris Perito (Falmouth, Mass. Maritime Academy), center fielder and pitcher Ben Smith (Bourne, Worcester State) and pitcher and designated hitter John Tropea (Sandwich, Mass. Maritime Academy).
Manager Brian Tomasini (Sandwich) coached his way to his second-straight Manager of the Year honor in district. In his first year replacing Chris Fitzgerald at the general manager position, Carl Cavossa won the district’s General Manager/Administrator of the Year.
The senior legion squad finished the year 24-2 while the junior legion team went 24-5 and reached the American Legion regional tournament.
