Section VI officials are saluting the section’s senior baseball players in recognition of the season that was lost to the Covid-19 Pandemic.

“The Section VI Baseball Committee decided to put together a list that would honor our senior athletes. Our goal was to give our players something to remember, since they never got the opportunity to swing the bat one final time”, said Section VI Baseball Chairman Robert Parry.

In a message to the seniors Parry said, “success in athletics is measured in many ways. One is easy to see, it includes state championships, rivalry wins, and trophies in the case. But there is another measure of success, that is harder to count, but much more important — it is the person you have become. This will never be taken from you. Your training, your teammates and coaches and the years of dedication to your sport have changed you, they have made you men of character who stand ready to make a difference in the world. Hold on to that. Use this to fuel your fire – not put it out.”
