Arguably one of the stronger, rising, young baseball clubs in Nassau County, the Massapequa Redmen are being well-acknowledged by clubs all around the county. This past summer, the Massapequa Redmen Baseball Club took on two major tournaments but resulted with elimination in both showcases. In a Baseball Heaven tournament, the Redmen had a strong start, but ended up just short in a tight championship matchup. In addition, the Redmen went down to participate in an invitational tournament in North Carolina, along with seven other bright baseball clubs in the region. Despite falling short, the young baseball club kept their heads up high, as they acknowledged the great experience of playing against a high-caliber clubs, residing in a region that is prominent for being excellent at baseball.

A few months before the opening week of baseball season, the Redmen use the offseason to get coached by one of the more notable baseball training facilities called “Storm Academy,” whose program runs for 8 weeks — once a week, with each session running for 90 minutes. Just as what they are known for, the Redmen continue to show diligence at the game, as they equip themselves with boldness and courage against any club that challenges them.

The Massapequa Redmen Club still proves to be one of the brighter teams here in Nassau County. More things to come, the youth athletes here continue to develop and maximize their potential, hoping to shine brighter in the high school and possibly the collegiate level. The team shows great omnipotence, as they seem sharp both on the field and at the plate. Some of the notable players to look for include Tom Marten (corner infielder) and Ryan Umano (OF & SS). Nick Spitzer (P), meanwhile, in the conversation of the brightest stars for Massapequa, being noted as the most improved player from the previous season. Monsignor McClancy shows versatility, helping the Redmen at any place he needs to fill in. The Massapequa Redmen continues to consistently improve in the game, as they look to pose a threat and make a name for themselves in Nassau County Baseball.
