The Nor’ East Clippers 12U were playing against 33Rodz in the Labor Day Championship on September 1st at Baseball Heave in Yaphank, NY. It was a high energy game. Gage Saresky steps up to bat for the Clippers and sends it over the left field fence! This was the first of two home runs for Gage in that game. He had three total that weekend during the tournament.
His mom shared, “There were a group of younger players watching from behind the backstop. My son Gage heard them say to him ‘Hey Kid, hit a dinger’ which made him smile. He took the moment in, had fun and hit a home run for them. The kids cheering in the background were the young players. You can see Gage point to them at the end of his celebration as a way to acknowledge their support.”
Gage is a passionate baseball player (mostly playing at catcher) with an IQ to match. He loves to support his teammates in the dugout to rally, is often the first player to practice and the last to leave or stay after to run laps or hills. Gage has been training with Coach Ryan Roman since he was 8 years old and is currently developing his skills to play third base. Gage made the Perfect Game All Tournament Team and was distinguished with MVP honors in a Cal Ripken tournament.
