#18 Joshua Cohen Makes His Triumphant Return to the Mound After a 10 Month Battle With Cancer
The PS2 Academy Crusaders made it to the semi-finals at the Perfect Game Super 25 Qualifier the weekend of June 16th in Staten Island. In Game 1, Nick Palumbo threw 6 shut out innings, allowing only 2 hits with 7 strikeouts in an 8-0 win. His fastball was up to 85 mph while spotting his curveball and changeup at will throughout the game.
Game 2 saw the return of Joshua Cohen to the mound after a 10 month battle with Ewing's Sarcoma. Cohen was lights out with 5 shut out innings allowing only 2 hits against a very good 9ers Baseball Club for a 2-0 win. Cohen's fastball was up to 84 mph and his breaking ball kept hitters off balance all game.
Also of note from the weekend - the return of another starting pitcher, LHP Jeremy Gutierrez, who closed out the game against the 9ers with one scoreless inning, displaying life on his fastball and great break on his curveball.
PS2 Academy's Arbert Cipion Shines at Prep Baseball Report's Pre-Season All-State Showcase
If you follow us at all, you know the name Arbert Cipion. Arbert is an exceptional athlete with a very promising future ahead of him. Everywhere he goes, he's noticed.
Here's what PBR had to say about Arbert after their NJ showcase earlier this month:
"2018 OF Arbert Cipion (Passaic County Tech HS, NJ) turned heads with his incredible athleticism and quickness. He had the top 60 yard dash time at 6.64. He recorded an exit velocity of 93 mph and hit mostly hard line drives with back spin in batting practice."
We're proud to have Arbert as part of the PS2 family and we can't wait to see what's next for him!
