The history of the Commander’s Cup:

Spotswood has won the last three Commander’s Cup Trophy games against East Brunswick, dating back to 2017.

Spotswood and East Brunswick will play their annual Commander’s Cup game on Wednesday, a matchup that was born out of Post 25 American Legion baseball.

You can hear the game live on Central Jersey Sports Radio with pregame at 3:45 and first pitch at 4 pm, as Mike Pavlichko and Dom Savino call all the action. Click here to listen.

Chargers’ coach Glenn Fredricks, a Spotswood alum who’s now in his 17th year as the program’s head coach, took over the Milltown Post 25 baseball team in 2004, and says the game came about because of adjutant Bill Thompson’s love for baseball.

The team, of course, featured kids from both high schools and all three towns, since high school students in Milltown attend Spotswood.

The next year, when Fredricks first led Spotswood, he decided the high school teams should play each other every year, with the winner keeping Thompson’s trophy.
