Albany Athletics
    ALBANY ATHLETICS GM/Head Coach: Joe Altieri (24th season) Assistant Coach: Eric Biehler. 2018 Finish: 22-2 league   The defending Twilight League Champion Albany Athletics will return several players from its 2018 roster. This year the Athletics will aim to win their record breaking 10th league championship and make it a 14th straight year of reaching the League Finals.  Nate Novak, 2015 and 2017 League MVP, and Dan Barbero, 2007 League MVP, will lead the list of returnees.  Cam Overbaugh, 2017 All-Star and 2014 league batting champion, in addition to 2017 All Stars Craig Mastroianni and Chris Salamida also return to lead the A’s offense. Salamida was a playoff MVP and will return as the team’s starting centerfielder and top pitcher.  RJ Pingitore, 2016 League Playoff MVP, and outfielder/first basemen Greg Sulz will also return as key members of the offense.   The pitching staff will retain Salamida, Zach Breen, Ryan Harper, Bryan Carr and Joe Pokrentowski.  Several rookie players are expected to also make an immediate impact.   Last year, the A’s captured their 9th Twilight League crown by sweeping through the League Semifinals and Finals for the third straight year.  They finished with 41 overall wins and 22 in the league. Manager Joe Altieri, the ATL’s all-time winningest manager with 374 league wins and 811 overall, enters his 24th season in amateur baseball and 22nd coaching in the Twilight League.
