Suffern High School senior Robbie Aviles has been making news lately after throwing consecutive no-hitters here in Rockland County, including a perfect game against my old school, Nanuet.
I covered Aviles’ most recent start on April 28 when Suffern improved to 9-1 with a walk-off win over Clarkstown South. Aviles struck out 12 and allowed one run in front of at least 30 Major League scouts.
Aviles’ story is pretty interesting — his father, Suffern’s pitching coach, pitched in the Minors for about five years and has clearly passed along some great advice to his hard-throwing son. Both told me on Wednesday they’re excited to get drafted and begin a journey to the Majors.
