Don't forget to sign up your child for the league. The season is only seven weeks away.
The Matawan Aberdeen Babe Ruth League announced that it will be extending late registration until Saturday, Feb. 16 due to the recent weather conditions. “We’ve had people who haven’t signed up yet and I think a big part of it is the weather. When it's 18 degrees outside or there’s a foot of snow, people aren’t thinking ‘Hey, it’s almost baseball season’,” said Councilman Tom Fitzsimmons, who is also a member of the MABRL Board of Trustees. “But we’re only seven weeks away from opening day so we need to get uniforms ordered and pick teams pretty soon,” he continued.

Nine defensive players on the field. Ninety feet to first. Sixty feet, six inches from the mound to home plate. Baseball's best hitters succeed a…

MRHS teams celebrated some successes in 2010-2011 and look forward tp the next set of seasons.
Matawan Regional High School has a rich tradition of athletic achievement, and from the diamond to the eight-lane track, the Huskies delivered the goods this past school year. And with several standouts across many sports returning next season, local fans can expect more of the same from the Maroon and Grey. TRACK AND FIELD While the Huskies' powerful football team garnered much of the attention throughout the year, it wasn't the only successful program. The boys track and field team captured its third straight Central Jersey Group II title by holding off Long Branch, 80-77. Hodge led the Huskies with wins in the discus (176-7) and shot put (50-7.25), while Michael Sefack won the javelin with a throw of 164-8. Solomon Simpkins won the long…
