On Sunday morning the Auburn High varsity baseball team received their awards for winning the MIAA Division 3 State Championship. Along the way, there were many great games and great moments, but there were also times when players, coaches and fans cringed just a bit. There were also a few plays everyone wanted to forget.

Today’s slideshow highlights just a few of those moments, and it serves as a reminder that champions aren’t always perfect. The important thing to remember is that the team no one expected to go so far did through perseverance, practice, and, most importantly, believing in themselves and trusting their teammates.

Congratulations gentlemen!
