TWO DAYS, TWO GREAT CELEBRATIONS, CROTON WINS, COACH HAS BABY

When Croton-Harmon recorded the final out of its 11-inning victory over top-seeded Briarcliff (18-3) on Wednesday afternoon, Coach Eric Rosen celebrated like he never has before. 

Except for the fact that he has celebrated like that before.  On Tuesday morning, at 11:50 a.m., just four hours before the start of the Section 1 Class B quarterfinals against Briarcliff, Ryan Celia Rosen was born and Coach Rosen was a father for the second time with a baby daughter.
