Opening Day may take place in mid March for most of Youth Baseball, but when you are from the North East, you are use to a different time table. This past weekend marked the last few season kick-off events around the five boroughs, with one league hosting a very special guest- Yankees Catcher Gary Sanchez! The young backstop was at Paulino Little League this past Saturday, where he inspired local youth to excel on and off the diamond. One kid, however, took it immediately to heart.
Playing for the reigning U10 Borough Cup Champions, Raiders Baseball Club, Eleven Year-Old Juan Miguel Garcia had an opening day to remember going 3-3 with 2 doubles and four RBIs leading his team to the victory and earning himself the honor of "Metro Star Of The Week"!
