I.S. 318 Baseball Team History: 

             In 2010, coaches Thanasi Iliopoulos and John Nagler put together the first ever I.S. 318 baseball team. With the help of the Roberto Clemente Little League, a local middle school baseball league was formed in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  I.S. 318 finished their inaugural season 11-1 winning the first ever league championship against rival M.S. 50. 

             In 2011, I.S. 318 decided to join the New York City Middle School Baseball League as one of over 50 teams in Manhattan, Bronx, Queens and Brooklyn fighting to win the City Championship.  The Conquistadors made their presence felt in the league going an undefeated 7-0 in the regular season.  After a 20-0 win against I.S. 166 in the first round of the Brooklyn playoffs, they then faced I.S. 62 Ditmas for the Brooklyn championship.  The Conquistadors battled their way coming from behind twice in the game to win the Brooklyn Championship 5-3. 

           The celebration didn't last long because I.S. 318 knew their biggest challenge yet was still to come in facing the Queens Champion - I.S. 61. Da Vinci team.  Da Vinci was the 2-time defending champion, not having lost a game in over 2 years.  Behind great pitching and perfect defense, the Conquistadors toppled the defending champs 2-0 to punch their ticket to the championship game.

           Behind the beautiful backdrop at Roosevelt Island, I.S. 318 faced the Bronx champion M.S. 145 for the City Championship Game.   The Conquistadors faced amazing adversity in the game starting from behind early,  then losing their MVP to an injury early in the game and later on losing their center fielder and hits leader to a concussion.  The team, not hiding their tears for their fallen teammate decided to battle on and staged a come from behind victory to take the 2011 City Championship!  It was an amazing season and all the parents and players that were a part of it,  will never forget it.


 Win-Loss Record since 2010:  98-6


"When a great man dies, for years the light he leaves behind him, lies on the paths of men. "

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The I.S. 318 baseball team pays its respects to a great man and a great leader. Our former principal, Mr. Rubino gave so much to our school and this team.  We wouldn't have a baseball team if it wasn't for his belief in offering as much as we can to our students inside and outside of school.  We will miss him greatly.
