Now this team right hurrr 13u District 6 Champs is special to me because my son is on the team and I help coach. I’ve been coaching at Teaneck southern since Milian was 5yrs old and finally we won our 1st championship together! It’s dope when you get to coach your son but to win a Championship together it’s #Priceless.
That being said, I’d like to give a big shout out to these boys .Although we lost in sectionals, they played their heart out. Starting with the first game when we came back from a 9-2 deficit to win 10-9 wow!!! It is fair to say that’s the biggest comeback in “sectionals” history? (gotta find that out). That was the best game I’ve been apart off in all my time coaching. Thank you for an exciting year I will never for get it.
Led by our Manager Jeff Hernandez and coaches Dan Moya and myself.
Players from left, Matt Alegria, Gabe St.Hilaire-Urbina, Kenny Marmol, Julian Vasquez, Will Odige Jr, Rajan Luciano, Jalen Babb, Matt Moya, Alex Cabrera, Jack Daniels, Alex Tomlinson, Josh Odei and Milian Reyes.
Again congratulations on being districts champs but we have work to do so make sure you stay “Baseball” active. We will be back for sectionals next year, our goal is to win it and move on. Shout out to all the parents too who support their kids. Thank You.

Hi everyone, let me start by thanking my coaches Dan Moya, my dad Danny and Jeff Hernandez. I was honored to have the opportunity to play on a travel team. I’ve been playing baseball now for 8yrs . It feels great to win my first championship with my dad. I know my team and I would have loved to win sectionals but we came up short. Next year my goal is to win another championship and go to back to States! I can’t believe we made the local paper!
Why is it important to play a team sport?
You can earn a scholarship for college.
It teaches problem solving and strategy.
You have to listen and work together to achieve a goal.
Helps to build self confidence.
If you work hard you can become a pro player one day and make a lot of money!
