On Monday, the Aces defeated Northtown in their season opener at Laramie Park, 7-5. Avi Asher picked up the win on the mound, with Seth Greenberg getting the save. Timely hitting from Noah Jaffe, Max Baker and Josh Goldrich helped the Aces in a true team victory with contributions from many on the roster. Team members wore neon green arm bands in honor of teammate Caleb Maeir, sending him prayers for a refuah shleima. Seth Greenberg says, “This season we, The Ida Crown Aces Baseball team, will be wearing neon arm sleeves to honor our teammate Caleb Maeir (who loves neon) and support him with his fight for cancer and his road to recovery. Caleb, you might not be at the games with us physically but every play, every win is for you bud.”
