Darien's Senior Babe Ruth team will play Monroe Friday night in the semifinals of the district playoffs at 5:30 p.m. at Holahan Field. Darien finished the regular season 15-3.
If Darien wins tonight's game, it will play for the district championship Saturday at 10 a.m. in Darien. Fairfield plays Trumbull in the other semifinal. Darien is attempting to win its first District Babe Ruth title since 1969, according to assistant coach Jim Bogie.
"It's a little bit of a surprise,'' Bogie said. "We've won a lot of close games. We've kind of been on the edge a little bit."
T.J. Garvin is the Darien manager. Team members include Brent Eppley, Cam Bogie, Travis Fitzpatrick, Nick Hart, Jack Barrington, Alex Granata, Matt Macksamie, Nick Neville, Dylan Bothe, Chris Morales, Andrew Kristoff, Dave Maturo, Joe Puzio, Charlie Eisner, Will Ropp and Max Gunn.
