The Clarkstown Stars won the American Amateur Baseball Congress (AABC) North Atlantic Super Regional Tournament against teams from Connecticut, New Jersey and New York. The Tournament took place from July 24 to 27 in Tuxedo, NY. The teams attending the Regionals qualified by playing in district tournaments.
The Stars finished 4-1 in the tournament. In the Championship game, the Stars beat the Bergen Express 6-2 in extra innings. Liam Hehir put together a great outing on the mound. Bergen Express managed just two hits off Hehir, who allowed just two earned runs during his seven innings of work. Closer Miles Massay put away the final three outs to record the save.
