S. Jersey Boys: Tues. S.J. boys: Another win for Woodstown, Ware

Posted: April 03, 2014

After celebrating its new grass field Tuesday, Woodstown moved a step closer to commemorating the achievements of baseball coach Lee Ware.

Woodstown and Ware opened their season with a 4-2 win in a Tri-County Diamond matchup against Deptford. Ware shares South Jersey's all-time record with 603 wins, tied with Russ Spicer, who guided Haddonfield, Moorestown, Paulsboro, and Cinnaminson.

"It means I've been around a long time and I've surrounded myself with some good people," said Ware, who has coached Woodstown since 1974. "I'm very blessed. I've had players who always sacrificed for the team."

Austin Counsellor gave up two runs on three hits over seven innings to earn the win Tuesday. He struck out five and walked none.

Ware will have a chance to break the record when Woodstown hosts Glassboro on Wednesday.
