The Spartans are coming off an impressive 10-0 win over Gill St. Bernard in the the semi-final game, will jump on the bus yet again with the Non-Public B title on the line.
"This team responds well to going on the road," Spartans manager Steve Normane told Mike Frankel on the South Jersey Sports Report. "I'm not sure what it is, but getting on that bus doesn't faze us. We don't come off that bus will too much energy or too little energy, we're all in the right frame of mind to step off that bus and get a job done and play baseball."
After a slow start to the season, with a lot of young kids the Spartans have persevered and battled their way to an opportunity to win a state title.
"In two playoff games we've given up only two runs," Normane explained. "The three pitchers who have thrown all those innings are all sophomores."
The Spartans are on a magical run right now and it just got some help bring home a championship getting some words of wisdom from MLB all-star Todd Frazier.
The Toms River native starred for the team that won the 1998 Little League World Series and is also Rutgers baseball alum.
Frazier sent the Spartans a video with a message to get them ready for the game.
Pretty classy move by Frazier a 2014 National league all-star who is on his way to the midsummer classic again this season hitting .287 with 16 home runs and 31 RBIs in 48 games for the Reds, who are in town to play the Phillies this week.
