Biggest and best in baseball meet at Monroe tourney
The biggest and best will meet all week on the diamond at the 38th Monroe Holiday Tournament. Teams from across the Bronx and New York City compete in the tournament, formally named the Joseph Consagra Memorial Baseball Tournament in memory of Monroe legend Joseph Consagra. Consagra ran the tournament until passing the responsibility on to the current Monroe baseball coach Mike Turo. The top 20 public school teams compete in games all over the Bronx. The results are used as a gage for citywide playoff seeds later in the season.
