Garden City High School Baseball Honored By Umpires Association


On June 12, the Nassau County Umpires Association held its annual awards banquet honoring the top baseball programs in Nassau County. The annual award is presented to the school, and their coach, from among the 57 varsity programs in Nassau County and is voted upon by approximately 250 umpires throughout the league.

After 40 years of coaching the Trojans, with more than 600 wins, three County Championships and a State Championship crown, Coach Richard Smith still had a huge smile on his face when presented with this award.

Congratulations to Coach Smith, the coaching staff and the boys of the varsity baseball team for this honor.
