Scarsdale Raiders Baseball Team Celebrates Seniors

senior day 4Scarsdale Raiders Seniors and their parents holding team photosSaturday, May 5, the Raiders faced off against the Stepinac Crusaders on senior day. Preceding the game, a ceremony was held to honor the ten seniors on the team: Jack Callahan, James Conlan, Matt Daniel, Michael Green, Daniel Karp, Evan Maroney, Zach McMurray, Kiran Ramachandran, George Samwick, and Joe Weintraub. Assistant Coach Boyer announced each senior, their parents, their respective college, and a witty comment for each player. The players, after being announced, made their way to home plate to greet their parents and take a picture before getting a team photo. To conclude the ceremony, a plaque was hung on the dugout fence and read, “Standing on the shoulders of those who came before us” followed by the name and number of each 2018 senior. After the ceremony, the Raiders quickly got to work.
