Canandaigua baseball’s run ends in Class A semifinals

The Braves were never really out of it, but they never quite got into it, either. And as coach Dale Werth points out, it’s not always the number of hits that matter in a baseball game. It’s the timing of them. In Friday evening’s Class A state semifinal game, the Queensbury Spartans had more timely hits and as a result,... more

Victor reaches the Class AA baseball state semifinals with 3-1 win over Lancaster

There was another long ball hit by Chris Varone at Frontier Field, and this home run helped launch the Victor Blue Devils into the semifinals of the Class AA baseball state tournament.

Victor walks off with win over McQuaid for Class AA title

It’s very likely that in the years to come Chris Varone will tell anyone who’ll listen about that time in his high school when his Victor baseball team played at Frontier Field and he smashed a home run to centerfield measured at 420 feet. That happened in Thursday’s semifinals. Varone was back at it again on Saturday at Frontier when... more

Canandaigua rolls to third straight baseball title

Michael Sculli helped get the Braves get this far. So how appropriate is that the junior left-hander is the one to provide the final push? Sculli pitched a complete game shutout, striking out six, and recorded three hits including an RBI triple to help lead the Braves a 4-0 win over Brockport on Saturday at Colburn Park. It’s the third... more
