In the Shoreham-Wading River High School baseball team’s first scrimmage this year, Jared Sciarrino made quite an impression. The transfer from Longwood struck a laser of a line drive for a home run for his new team.
His new coach, Kevin Willi (a former Longwood player himself), liked what he saw. Willi recalled, “I said, ‘Oh, this kid’s going to hit some home runs this year. Look at his swing. Look at his pop.’ ”
Sciarrino, however, hasn’t made a name for himself as a home-run hitter. He had a homer against Bayport-Blue Point earlier this season, but that was it.
Aidan Crowley pitched his third successive no-hitter for the Shoreham-Wading River High School baseball team Tuesday. The junior righthander extended his string of hitless pitching to 25 innings with his latest no-no, a 6-0 non-league victory over Hauppauge at Medford Baseball Complex.
In order to pitch a no-hitter in baseball, it helps to pitch to contact.
That sounds like a contradiction, but Aidan Crowley believes it’s true, and he should know. Crowley tossed no-hitters in consecutive starts — his first two of the season — this month for Shoreham-Wading River High School.
