The Beach Channel High School baseball team looks to cap off their incredible 2014 season as they face Bronx Science in the New York City high school “B” championship.

The Dolphins (14-2), led by team captains Kely Aponte and Ryan Suglia, dominated the Queens South “B” division all year, and have continued that run through the playoffs.

In their last contest, they stormed back from an early 5-0 deficit to beat Bushwick, 9-7, this past Sunday.

“These kids are fearless, and they are really living a dream,” said Beach Channel coach John Mangieri. “They are building lifelong memories, and this would be icing on the cake; to win a city title on the biggest stage in sports history.

The win against Bushwick sets up the Yankee Stadium showdown with Bronx Science (13-3), who outlasted a very competitive Bronx North division, which had four teams with 10 or more wins.

“Now let’s go win a championship!”
