The ’98 Bears. Passalacqua (#23), Simmons (#9) & Houseknecht (#11)

On this day 17 years ago, the baseball team thumped Port Jeff, 9-4, thanks to two deep drives from Lyndsey Simmons and Ray Houseknecht.

After Anthony Passalacqua tripled to knot the game at 1-1 in the first, the Bears unleashed a barrage on the Royals’ pitching that paved the way for a blue and white victory. In the bottom of the second, Simmons crushed a three-run home run. One inning later Houseknecht hit a two-run long ball that left the Brook up 8-1 on the way to a dominant win.

The Bears totaled 13 hits on the day.

The boys would go on to win the League VIII Championship for the second time in three years.
