Fifth / Sixth grade softball player Sarah Kelly and Fifth / Sixth baseball player Joseph Fagan were joined by Summit Mayor Nora Radest and Summit Police Department Officer Keith Kwiatek as the diamond duo was presented the Summit Junior Baseball (SJBS) and Softball "Major League Detective Matthew Tarentino Sportsmanship Award" for 2017.
One player per team was selected by their coaches from each of the nine baseball and 12 softball teams to receive the Sportsmanship award. Those 21 recipients were then narrowed down by the head coaches of each team and the President of SJBS.
The coaches and president then voted and chose one winner each from baseball and softball who they felt best represented their peers by displaying good character, leadership, team spirit, encouragement, respect and fair play.
