Colonia looks to stay unbeaten in GMC White in home doubleheader against cross-town rival Woodbridge

Though Colonia is just 2-2 in the early part of the 2021 high school baseball season, the Patriots have two out-of-conference losses, to Sparta and Immaculata.

That means they’re unbeaten in the GMC White Division, with a pair of wins over North Brunswick. And they’ll hope to continue that trend Saturday morning when they play a 10 am twin bill against Woodbridge, after rain wiped out their game in the third inning Thursday night.

The Patriots were leading 4-3 in the bottom of the third with Woodbridge at bat, and the Barrons had two runners on when the game was called.

The cancellation means they’ll restart that game from scratch Saturday, though the teams’ aces – who started Thursday’s game – won’t be able to pitch. Both Josh Vazquez for the Barrons and J.T. Kroner for the Patriots threw more than 50 pitches, which means two days rest is required and they wouldn’t be available until Sunday at the earliest.

Woodbridge takes four-game win streak into Colonia for twin-bill following rainout

Their aces were on the mound Thursday night, but Mother Nature had other plans.

Josh Vazquez of Woodbridge and Rutgers commit J.T. Kroner of Colonia were duking it out when the rains came, and stopped their game after 3 1/2 innings with the road Patriots ahead 4-3.

In the world of baseball, the stats don’t count, but at the high school level, the pitches do.

Since both eclipsed the 50 pitch mark, neither is available for what will now be a 10 am doubleheader Saturday at Colonia, which you can hear in its entirety on Central Jersey Sports radio by clicking here.

Central Jersey Sports Radio will debut LIVE H.S. baseball coverage on Opening Day next Monday

Monday, April 19th, will be the first Opening Day for high school baseball in New Jersey in two years, with last year’s entire season wiped out due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

And when the 2021 season begins, Central Jersey Sports Radio will be on hand, kicking off its season coverage.

We’ll begin the slate with a matchup of GMC White Divsion teams, when Edison entertains Woodbridge at 4:00 Monday afternoon. Mike Pavlichko and Chris Tsakonas will call all the live play-by-play at, which you can hear by clicking here. Tentative air time is 3:50 pm from the Boulevard of the Eagles, at the school’s brand-new red turf field.

Athletic Director David Sandaal says the field was under construction last winter and would have been ready to go during the 2021 season.

That season that never materialized. Though some Last Dance baseball tournament games were played there, Monday will be the first time Edison High School’s baseball team gets to take the field.

Sandaal says several dignitaries will be on hand.

Central Jersey Sports Radio will add additional games to the broadcast schedule throughout the season, and Mike Pavlichko will report from other games throughout the year as well.

CJSR also plans to broadcast live from Ray Cipperly Field for the Greater Middlesex Conference Torunament Semifinals and Finals, to be held in late May and early June.
