Joey Sabatella,  a junior pitcher and outfielder for the Emerson boys baseball team is looking to make a big impact this year on the varsity team. He has big plans in mind to bring home a state title to his hometown of Emerson, New Jersey. He thinks the cavos have all the right tools this year and will be able to accomplish their goal of a state championship.

Emerson’s great tradition in baseball has gotten Joey very interested in the sport and a desire to be a part of the team. He loves the atmosphere around the baseball team. Joey is very optimistic for this year. He said, “Very strong we have many returning players and multiple committed to playing college baseball”. Having that kind of a talent on a group one baseball team is a recipe for success, and a potential State Championship. 

The baseball team has had much more College and future College athletes than in previous seasons. It seems that this year will be a very special year for the baseball players. There are two seniors committed to play at Caldwell University and one junior pitcher committed to Stony Brook. There are also many more athletes looking to playing college who have the skill set to do so. This will help the team compete in the state tournament.

Although the team came up short last year, he feels this year can be very different. He explains how we are bringing back a lot of experience, “We know what we need to do to win, we are bringing more playoff experience” he said.

Furthermore he commented on this year’s competition and how how we will have some tough matchups. “We want to win states. It is possible, we just need to get past Middlesex.” Middlesex has been in the past three state championships beating us in one of them, however we beat them in one as well. It should be a very exciting season for the Cavos and one that we should all look forward to on their quest to win a state championship
