BERLIN — “We don’t look at that, not at all,” Berlin High head coach Leo Veleas said about his No. 1 seeded team’s 7-1 victory over No. 24 seed Foran of Milford at SGT. Zipadelli Field in Sage Park on Saturday. “Coach (Frank) Vieira once told me about preparing for another team: “Did they show up? Did they bring their bats and balls.’ That’s what he said.”
Veleas, now in his 33rd season helming the Redcoats, took his Hall-of-Fame coach at the University of New Haven’s words to heart.
