On Saturday, June 15, Southborough Youth Baseball presented its 2nd annual Eric Green Sportsmanship award to Neil Mauskar. The presentation followed the Little League Majors Division Championship played that afternoon.
SYB awarded Neil and recognized other nominees as exemplifying outstanding attitude sportsmanship and team spirit. This year’s other nominees were Giancarlo Coelho, Alex Elias, James Jessup, and Christopher Mills. Neil’s name was added to the plaque permanently displayed at Trottier Middle School.
Last year, when SYB announced that this annual award for the 10-12 year old little league division would be named after Eric Green, they explained:
This award will be based on qualities exhibited by Eric during his baseball career and throughout his life. This is not to be equated to baseball skills but rather good sportsmanship, perseverance and one’s overall commitment to their team and friends.
SYB shared a recap of last Saturday afternoon’s championship game:
The Southborough Little League Majors Division Championship between #1 seed Eagle Leasing and #2 seed McCarthy Pools was played on Saturday afternoon. After two well played games by both teams, McCarthy Pools edged Eagle Leasing 6-5 to take home the Championship trophy. Congratulations to all the players for a terrific 2013 season.
Congratulations to Neil and to the McCarthy Pools team!
