Baseball: Sickles coach nabs 200th victory

Sickles baseball coach Bob Pagano has been with the program since the beginning, leading the team since the inaugural 1997-98 school year.

And Tuesday night, with a 5-2 come-from-behind victory over King, Pagano notched a milestone that attests to his longevity: 200 career wins.

“It just means I’m getting pretty old,” he said with a laugh.

The game, which Pagano called one of the best Sickles (4-2) has played this year, didn’t lack tense moments. In the fourth inning, with the Gryphons up 2-0, starting pitcher Shane Haight was hit in the head and knocked from the game. He was taken to St. Joseph’s Hospital, diagnosed with a slight skull fracture.

On the field, the Gryphons battled back after losing the lead with three runs in the seventh inning to give Pagano the milestone victory.
