Sachem alums Neal Heaton and Scott June led the Long Island Road Warriors to a Hamptons Collegiate Baseball title this past week.
Heaton, a former major league pitcher, managed the ball club, while June, an owner of the All Pro Sports Academy, is the team’s general manager.
Sachem North alum Steven Foster is on the team as a player, but did not play in the championship game due to an injury.
It was a new team and a new concept for the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League. Take a team of some of the talented local collegiate talent on Long Island and have a travelling club around the Island all summer.
Under the guidance of their head coach Neal Heaton, Long Island finished as the second seed in the HCBL playoffs. Long Island would not disappoint going a perfect 4-0 in the postseason as the Road Warriors took the HCBL title from defending champion Westhampton in a 5-3 victory in Game 2 of the 2017 HCBL Championship Series.
