A few more powerful tournaments have wrapped up in the last week. Crespi High (Encino, Calif.) won its second National Classic title in three years in Southern California. Chaminade High (West Hills, Calif.) won the Anaheim Lions Tournament and the No. 1 Farragut Admirals flexed their muscles in Orlando's National Classic. Here's a few notes and links from around the country:
• The Diamond Sports National Classic had an exciting finish as Crespi needed a sacrifice fly in the ninth inning to seal the victory. Our friends at OC Varsity provided a wrap-up with video as well.
• Chaminade's Lions Tournament title was its ninth consecutive win.
• Farragut continued winning after taking down Flanagan High (Pembroke Pines, Fla.) in Orlando's National Classic.
• Thursday evening marked a return to action for the Suffern (N.Y.) High baseball team. You probably know Suffern because of Robbie Aviles, a big righthander that is No. 20 on our High School Top 100. While many scouts were in attendance to see Aviles' start, they were merely a side note in an otherwise emotional game. Two Suffern players, Vincent Crotty and Christopher Konkowski, were killed in a car accident on their way to practice on March 30. The players were honored in a pregame ceremony. Their numbers were retired, the fathers threw out the first pitch and former Yankee Bernie Williams was in attendance.
• This story can go under the bizarre category. Dennis Canale resigned from his head coaching position at Xaverian High in Brooklyn after last season, citing health reasons. A few months later, reports started to surface about his involvement in a gambling ring that had ties to the mob. As the New York Daily News reports, an investigation is underway and the players are trying to move on.
