These are exciting times for the Pequannock Patriots family!
I have had the great opportunity to coach for the Patriots 18U team since they were 9 years old and I have watched the players grow from boys just learning the game to young men playing the real game of baseball. Our strategy has been to build a town based travel baseball organization by developing the players skill set to succeed at a high level.
Growth of the organization has been carefully conducted to ensure that we have the proper coaching and mix of players to succeed at all levels. This includes our year-end review and evaluation of all of our teams to maintain our baseball quality and above all; sportsmanship. We are extremely proud of our past success and the Pequannock Patriot name brand for Northern New Jersey travel baseball.
Although, I must say that one of the most interesting things about the Patriot baseball culture is that while we may not always win every tournament or league, one thing has remained constant and that is our sportsmanship. The bottom line is that our players are taught to play baseball the proper way and to both win and lose gracefully. Every organization decision is based on preserving these important values.
I would like to personally thank Dominick DeSenzo and Jim Dericks, our past president and vice-president, for all of their years of service and hard work that they have put into the Patriots. It is their efforts that have made the Pequannock Patriots organization the one that it is today. Many thanks to our board as well; Bruce Conte-VP, John Goll-Treasurer and Lisa Nelson-Secretary.
As I mentioned, these are truly exciting times for Pequannock Patriot baseball. We currently are fielding the following team levels: 8U, 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U and both Junior and Senior American Legion. The Patriot leadership team could not be more thrilled with the opportunity to teach high quality baseball to our community youth. It is truly a pleasure to serve as president of the Pequannock Patriots.
