Rocky Point High School’s varsity baseball team recently held its fourth annual Live Like Susie scholarship fundraising game, which is played in memory of Rocky Point alumna Susie Facini.  

The team played the early May game against Mount Sinai after working for weeks under the direction of coach Andrew Aschettino gathering donations and creating commemorative T-shirts, all in support of the annual scholarship. This year, thanks to the generosity of both teams, Rocky Point baseball raised over $600 in a matter of hours for the worthy cause.

That same week was made even sweeter for Rocky Point baseball, as coach Aschettino reached a professional milestone – his 200th career game win. To help recognize the achievement, the team surprised him with a celebration during the Live Like Susie game, complete with a commemorative cake made by Mrs. Facini.
