A Look Back: Tottenville HS baseball over the years

The Tottenville baseball program has long established itself as the gold standard on the diamond among its Staten Island cohorts.

The Pirates, who have won 11 PSAL city titles, are typically among New York City’s elite and have consistently thrown out top-level talent.

Take a look at some of these vintage shots of the team in action over the years:
