Newmarket Juniors advance to regional championship

BANGOR, Maine — Myles Carrico had a big day pitching and hitting to lead Newmarket Post 67 to an 8-1 win over Skowhegan, Maine, to earn a berth in Sunday’s Junior American Legion Northeast Region 1 baseball championship game against Stratford, Conn., at 5 p.m.

Carrico went 3 for 5 at the plate with two runs, and tossed six strong innings at Mansfield Stadium. He allowed an unearned run on three hits, walked three and whiffed seven. Josh Mastin tossed a 1-2-3 seventh.

“They’ve just been playing great ball,” said coach Cam Calato. “They’re playing unreal.”

Junior Legion: Surging Post 67 claims Northeast title

Owen Tonkin did it it with his bat and also did it on the mound.

The Oyster River High School junior to be was an inspiration for Newmarket Post 67 as it rallied in the fifth inning to win the Northeast Region 1 Junior Legion baseball championship Sunday at Mansfield Stadium in Bangor, Maine.

Post 67 beat Stratford, Conn., for the title, 8-4, to complete a 3-0 run through the tournament and finish the season with a record of 17-4.

In postseason play, Newmarket was 7-0.

Tonkin went all seven innings, allowing three earned runs on seven hits. He whiffed six, walked two and hit a batter.

“They hit him early, but Tonkin settled down in the third,” coach Cam Calato said. “He definitely got stronger as the game went on.”

Hosting regional tourney may portend future Junior Legion baseball growth

BANGOR, Maine — The final day of organized youth baseball for the summer at Mansfield Stadium had a low-key aura compared to recent years, even though a title was at stake.

But while the Junior American Legion Northeast regional championships may have lacked the cache of the Senior League World Series and its nationally televised final game that has been held here for the previous 15 years, it didn’t lack for passion among those who contended for the top prize.

“It was a great experience, worth the four-hour drive,” said Franklin (Massachusetts) Post 75 coach Tyler Pasquarosa after his team’s 14-0 victory over host Skowhegan Post 16, which came just before Newmarket (New Hampshire) Post 67 won the title with an 8-4 victory over Stratford (Connecticut) Post 42.

Post 67 caught fire, and kept on burning

...The biggest story of the tournament might have been the next game, a 3-0 win over Nashua. Little Stephen Coffey, age 14, handcuffed the Gate City nine to send Newmarket to the championship.

“Nobody expected that,” Calato said.

“I felt comfortable out there,” said Coffey, who will be a freshman at Newmarket High School this fall. “I just thought about what I’m going to do and not get my mind going and think about the game.”
