The South Brunswick High School baseball team headed into the spring with high hopes of winning a conference and state championship.

T.J. Perkowski and Sean Keenan commit to play for Rutgers University and Marist College, respectively.
As they approach the end of their high school careers, two of South Brunswick's brightest stars will be taking their talents to the next level in 2013. South Brunswick High School baseball standouts T.J. Perkowski and Sean Keenan signed collegiate letters of intent last month after anchoring the Vikings for the past few years. Perkowski, an outfielder and pitcher who is also the quarterback for the Group V state champion Vikings, will be headed to Rutgers University in the fall where he will continue his baseball career for the Scarlet Knights. "T.J. is probably one of the most versatile kids we've ever had. He can do it all," said assistant coach C.J. Hendricks. "His ability makes heads turn. But the humility with which he does it stands…

A group of parents, coaches and players from the South Brunswick High School baseball team volunteered to help clean up efforts in Sandy-ravaged Manasquan last weekend.
While sheer athletic ability is obviously vital to the achievements of student athletes, character is an often overlooked trait. As successful as the South Brunswick High School baseball team has been on the diamond, the squad's high character off the field has driven them to get involved in parts of the state still suffering in the wake of Superstorm Sandy. Last Sunday, a group of players, coaches and parents headed down to Manasquan to aid storm victims still undergoing power outages and suffering from the loss of their homes. "I've lived down there over the summer since 2006," said SBHS assistant coach C.J. Hendricks. "I know people down there who are having a really tough time. I've been down three or four times to volunteer, so I …

South Brunswick Black squad wins local showdown.
While many towns struggle to get enough players to field summer baseball teams, South Brunswick did its best to pick up the slack. South Brunswick had four summer teams for players of high school age. In addition to an American Legion team, South Brunswick also had three teams in the Greater Middlesex Coaches Summer Baseball League. One team played as a U-16 squad, the other two at U-17. "I believe South Brunswick has always been a baseball town," said Ryan Webb, who managed the South Brunswick Black team in the U-17 league. "We have a great system with the rec league. Kids do a lot of camps. Baseball is still very big in South Brunswick." It's so big, in fact, one of the last games of the summer season featured two South Brunswick teams …
