Atlantic City senior first baseman Steve Myers has always been an outstanding hitter. Part of that is having natural ability. Part of it might be the fact that he lives right next to the batting cages in Margate and spends copious amounts of time taking cuts inside the small cement-block building just beyond the outfield fence of the Hurricanes field.

You don’t get to a Group 3 state championship baseball game without some solid seniors, and Ocean City had a plethora of them this season. In fact, all but one of Ocean City’s starters this season were seniors, and right fielder Dom Fiorentino was one of the best hitters in the Cape-Atlantic League this season, and throughout his career.

TOMS RIVER — Former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson once said, “everyone has a plan until they get punched in the face.”

The Ocean City baseball team had what seemed like the perfect plan heading into the Group 3 state championship game on Saturday. Head coach Craig Mensigner had deftly maneuvered his pitching staff to line up ace Sean Mooney — a senior who hadn’t given up an earned run all season long in more than 50 innings pitched — to start against upstart Northern Highlands, a team that was the No. 8 seed in the North 1, Group 3 sectional.

And the Red Raiders had what Mensinger described as their best batting practice of the season at their home ballpark Saturday morning before taking the trip up to Toms River.

Then the Highlanders punched Ocean City square in the mouth in the top of the first inning, and the Red Raiders never recovered.

UNION — With a penchant to come from behind, as it did in each of its last three games, the Egg Harbor Township High School softball team never stopped believing it would once again overcome an early deficit in the state championship game on Friday night.
