State Senator Charles J. Fuschillo, Jr. (8th Senate District) and Assemblyman David G. McDonough (19th Assembly District) today congratulated the coaches and players from the Long Island Blue Demons on winning the Babe Ruth World Series Championship.
The Blue Demons were the first Long Island team ever to win the Babe Ruth World Series in the 13-15 year old age bracket. The squad is made up of 14 to 15 year old boys from communities across the south shore, including Freeport, North Merrick, Bellmore, and the Massapequas.
After winning the State and Regional Championships, the Demons traveled to Andalusia, Alabama to compete in the World Series. The Blue Demons captured the championship after defeating a team from Hendrickson, Kentucky by a score of 6-0. In recognition of the Blue Demons victory, a team jersey and hat will be on display at the National Baseball Hall of Fame for one year.
The team consisted of coaches Fred Kreuder, Peter August, and William Faust, and players Peter August (Freeport), Brett Barnathan (Massapequa), Richard Bianchi, III (North Bellmore), Robert Cafiero (Bethpage), John Dunn (Massapequa Park), Christian Faust (Massapequa), Alejandro Marine (Freeport), Douglas Marshall (Wantagh), Brian Mauro (North Merrick), Ronald Remi (Massapequa), Jesse Signa (Bethpage), Dino Tomasetti (Hewlett), Robert Tomasulo (North Bellmore), Kyle Tracy (Plainview), and Bryan Verbitsky (Levittown).
"After many hours of hard work, practice, and dedication, the Blue Demons can proudly say that they accomplished something that no other Long Island team has ever achieved. It is our pleasure to congratulate our community’s very own national champions," said Senator Fuschillo.
