IT HAPPENS once a decade, on average. Exactly on average, in fact.
We can say that now because today we're presenting the Daily News' 30th annual All-City Baseball Team and for just the third occasion, the first team includes a 3-year honoree.
His name is Mark Adzick, and he's a lefthanded pitcher from Penn Charter. He's also a Wake Forest signee, an 18th-round Phillies draft choice and our choice for Pitcher of the Year.
Although a strained abdominal muscle kept Adzick, a 5-year varsity performer, off the mound for close to a month, he nevertheless finished with a 7-1 overall record, a 1.78 earned run average and a strikeout-plus per inning.
