About Ardsley High School 80's Baseball Dynasty
Coach Neil Fitzpatrick led the Ardsley High School Panthers to 4 consecutive New York State Class C Baseball championships in the late 1980's. That feat had never been done before, and hasn't been accomplished since. Over three decades later, those memories still live in all those who were part of that dynasty. This is a "virtual scrapbook" to help remind us of that magical time.
Jeff Caldara, current Ardsley head coach. Class of 1988.
“Coach (Neil Fitzpatrick) was such a calming influence. He always had such an even demeanor. If you earned his respect and played the right way, he would put a lot of trust in you. Right before we got the triple play against North Valley Stream, he came to the mound and told us, ‘We’ll get out of this, score a couple of runs in the eighth or ninth inning and win.’ That was just him. He was the same person no matter what the situation was.”
