Baldwinsville baseball team makes state semifinal for second straight season

The Baldwinsville boys baseball team made it back to the state semifinals for the second straight season on Tuesday night, defeating Shenendehowa 4-0.

"It's the best feeling you could ever have," middle infielder Josh Savacool says. "Nothing else compares to it, last year it was the same kind of thing, just excitement and adrenaline all game, just fighting to the end, and that's what we did."

It was the team's 20th win of the season, tying a school record they set just last year. For the players, they say this season's success is a tribute to a roster stacked with seniors, focused on getting the job done in the state final four this year.

"It's definitely big for the program," catcher, and Baldwinsville all-time leader in hits Gabe Levanti says. "It gets Bees baseball on the map. It was good to do it last year, but now we've proven we're a big time program making it two years in a row."

Baldwinsville plays Ward Melville at 10 a.m. on Saturday in the State Semifinals in Binghamton.
