Baseball season in East Islip began this week, as the high school team won their opening day game on March 27. They demolished Half Hollow Hills East by a 18-1 score, riding the solid pitching of senior John Dondero. East Islip hit eight home runs (including two from Nick Calautti) and played solid defense in winning the opener. Calautti, who went 2-for-3, added five RBI to his scoring total. The series continues with two more games this week, including the team’s League III home opener on March 28.
