Preview of the Brooklyn Bandits

By Josh Choi, 02/09/19, 2:00PM EST


One of the few teams you should look out for in the five boroughs of New York — the Brooklyn Bandits. In the foregoing months, the Bandits have had a busy schedule with playing in a number of invitational tournaments including Ripken (South Carolina), Puerto Rico, and Staten Island. Out of the more notable tournaments, Brooklyn found great success in their local tournament, where they played a perfect game in majority of the “Elite Squads” tournament finals but coming just short. Beforehand, they clinched a spot to the finals after making a dramatic comeback from an 8:4 deficit in the last inning. On the other hand, the Brooklyn Baseball Club diligently works out in preparation for the upcoming season.

Despite the Brooklyn Bandits being prominent for their dominant pitching staff, they lack in their outfield. Throughout the process, they hope to find talent and develop their subpar outfield. Overall, that doesn’t slow the team down; the team collectively shows great versatility by having a number of players who have written a big name for themselves. Jalyn David has attracted many D-1 scouts in his previous season; whereas, Brandon Rosado remarkably hit 32 home runs last year. Another player to carefully look for is Amari Carruthers, who not only shows a great glove in the field but also shows great talent at the plate, winning the Silver Slugger award and obtaining the highest batting average.

The Brooklyn Baseball Club are looking forward to this new year, as Carruthers and the Brooklyn Bandits continue to hunt for more success.
